Born in Los Angeles to parents in the entertainment industry, Vanessa followed in her fathers footsteps and began her acting career at the young age of ten. Vanessa landed her first acting roll as a series regular on NBC in “Against The Grain.” To add to her already brimming young life, Vanessa fortuitously wandered into the world of jewelry-making by buying her first at home jewelry kit. After selling her first necklace on the set the following day, she decided this was her most favorite hobby. In no time at all, she had set up a workshop in her trailer and was selling her jewelry to the cast and crew.
What started as a hobby, later became the jewelry line Vanessalee Jewelry.
Currently living in Nashville with her husband, Vanessa loves to find old antique pieces and vintage pendants from all over the world adding her own bohemian touch to each piece. Some of her pieces are one-of-a-kind and others she replicates. Vanessa likes to add healing stones and circles in her creations – symbolizing the universal, sacred, and divine. Circles also represent the infinite nature of energy, the feminine spirit of force, and the embrace of the Universe. All that, behind the work, with love from Vanessalee.
