    AT NY NOW 2018

    A look into a brand’s culture through design

    Atlanta, GA- January 2018- anodized aluminum and resin beads are the elements for Vella mode’s Gege Collection making its debut at NY NOW 2018.  Atlanta metalsmith and first-time exhibitor, Trecy Bleich, interprets the style of Vella mode through her hand beaded Gege Collection.  The name Gege derives from Georgia and Germany, the birth places of Trecy and her husband.

    Gege collection is designed by combining classic and modern pieces using imported European satin finished anodized aluminum, matte gold-plated metals and matte hematite. Also in the line are resin beads made from polyester that reflect a pearl like glow.  Trecy named the colors in her collection espresso, oyster and indigo to soften the bolder hues of citrine, rose and purple. The styling of Gege is intended to be worn layered with Vella mode’s handcrafted metal pieces but is also interesting enough to be worn alone.  The collection has already caught the attention of two prominent Atlanta museums and individuals seeking a more artistic appearance in their jewelry. An important aspect for the line is the manufacturing process of the materials. Ethical guidelines are followed during production providing protection from harmful chemicals to humans and the environment. At NY NOW Trecy presents a carefully curated selection of necklaces, earrings and bracelets.

    “Typically I'm a laid- back casual person unlike my mom whom effortlessly wore dressier styles as a lady in the 60’s. Gege, puts me in the mind of her.  Since I named my company in my mother’s honor, I am glad there is a bit of classic in the line to embody part of what a Vella mode collection is about.” Says Trecy.

    Gege is currently being sold in museums and fine boutiques. At NY NOW Trecy is targeting buyers with discerning taste who want to offer unique pieces to their customers gravitating towards individualized style.

  • Open Circle collection

    The story behind a collection that sustained a brand

    Atlanta, GA January 2018-There is sometimes a story behind the story and the one for Vella mode’s Open Circle collection has made it a noticeable brand.

     In January 2014 Trecy Bleich, Owner for Vella mode, wanted to design something simple that reflected her brand. While thinking of options, she knew her life would be put on hold because she was scheduled for major surgery. The surgery was delayed 6 months but in the meanwhile her emotions were embattled about the reality and its potential outcome. The design for the open circle came out of these emotions. The circle symbolizes the encircling of fears and doubts Trecy was feeling. The opening of the circle is the door of courage, strength, love, opportunity, empowerment or whatever inspiration the wearer pulls from. 

    After her surgery and a brief recovery, she decided to sell about three Open Circle necklaces at a local Farmers market. While driving home from the market, feeling extremely tired, Trecy feel asleep and got into a major car accident. “God was looking over me that day.  That day the Open Circle became my testament.” Bleich says. During another period of recovery, Bleich composed a brief script for copyright to go along with every Open Circle purchase so she can encourage others. The script reads, “An inspirational piece to remind us that, whatever challenges encircle in our lives, there is always an open door”.

    The Open Circle collection is Vella mode’s top selling jewelry design.  It includes three size necklaces designed for layering, two size hoops, bracelets and stacking rings.  The collection also come in various metal tones from 14K gold filled, rose gold, silver and oxidized silver. “Every design I’ve done is a reflection of my mother’s style but the Open Circle collection has allowed so many wonderful opportunities for my company and is a true embodiment of a Vella mode design.” States Trecy. “Always an open door is the clear point for others to remember that whatever brings us down, there is a way out.”
