flashback to 10 years ago, misty b. incontrera and nancy koen aligned as stellar 20-somethings "working it" in the design and fashion industries in dallas forming an instant friendship.
in early 2012, the duo began to brainstorm a business that could marry their skill sets and backgrounds with a fresh, envelope-pushing concept. as misty had developed initial jewelry designs with her own jewelry line, SUSUjane, a light bulb moment arrived and b.stellar was born in the spring of 2013. by october 2013, nancy's connections in the wholesale industry landed b.stellar their first showroom at the fashion industry gallery "fig". sales and those initial designs were strong enough for misty to relocate back to dallas from austin, where she had moved in 2006, and in july of 2014 b. stellar’s main office and studio were established. their common love for art and fashion culminates today in misty's handmade modern designs for b.stellar.
