Betty AtwellBetty is a 6th generation Texan and the youngest of three. She was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. She grew up with two very talented parents, William W. Atwell and Betsy Atwell Dudley, who oozed creativity. She dabbled in the arts while raising her children. They left for school and suddenly she had all this time on her hands and an empty house-well except their four dogs. One night she called her niece over to have dinner and play/create with all of these beads and materials she had lying around in her studio. One thing led into another and she was hooked. It was perfect! She could still create her paintings, design jewelry, and be there for her kids whenever they needed her.
On a deeper level through this process, she found herself again. She had been so wrapped up in being a mom that she had lost her identity. It was almost a journey finding out that she could be a mother and be an artist. She regained her self-confidence and found another way to design. She loves seeing someone’s face light up when they put on a piece of jewelry. It becomes their identity and enhances their beauty and personality. It is as if she has made that one unique piece just for them and no one else. What a joy to be able to create something that gives someone that special finishing touch to an outfit that they are searching for.Betty Atwell
Betty’s parents had a ranch in Blanco, Texas for 45 years. Her father named the ranch The Circle A Ranch. Their cattle were branded with the Circle A. He had it on the front gate and a custom-made flag with the brand on it. After his passing in 2006, Betty took his brand and changed the name of her business using his Circle A brand above it. She changed the colors but it just seemed fitting to carry on a part of that legacy. She chose the color turquoise for her brand because it’s her favorite color. It goes with everything and represents an array of good things. It’s powerful, bright, fun, and vivacious. Yet it reminds her of being on the ocean- peaceful, calm, relaxing, and refreshing. With these two combinations Betty Atwell Design brand came into being.
