Each year when Tryon Palace showcases authentic North Carolina culture and heritage, Alice L. Bilello, of Harbour Island Designs, demonstrates the making of her fine fashion jewelry.
When artwalk events take place in New Bern, Alice sets up her tools during the public event to craft interesting designs while talking with art enthusiasts about the variety of beads and gemstones. Bilello continues to demonstrate her skills in designing the jewelry at Greater Good Gallery on a regular basis.
Currently Bilello displays her jeweled creations at the gift shop, Tryon Palace Museum Store, in the North Carolina History Center in New Bern.
Bilello believes in supporting community organizations and has donated to local fundraisers including The Craven Literary Council.
Bilello's company, Harbour Island Designs, has won awards for her contemporary jewelry designed with semi-precious stones.
