Frank Petrella joins B.BOLD Jewelry for Boomer Girls as head of marketing for the east coast. “Petrella is a retired concert promoter in the Boston area. He has worked with many bands, including Aerosmith, The Allman Brothers, Joe Cocker, Cheap Trick, Deep Purple, and the Ramones. Since his expertise is in marketing, scheduling, and advertising, he’ll be a great asset to our company,” CEO Marcia Southwick says.

Each necklace, bracelet, and pair of earrings is a bundle of beauty that will brighten one's day and refresh one's spirit. Some pieces might have an ancient Etruscan look, others a Southwestern flair, and still others a sophisticated New York style.

The company B.BOLD Jewelry for Boomer Girls was started in July of 2008 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

B.BOLD became a member of Ruby Lane, a retail online mall specializing in antiques, collectables, and artisan jewelry. It is consistently among the top five most popular artisan jewelry shops.

“As a newcomer to Ruby Lane,” Southwick says, “I was surprised by how quickly B.BOLD rose through the ranks of hundreds of artisan jewelry shops to become one of the most popular within its first few months. I think it’s because the jewelry is classic, versatile, bold, and is all about beautiful color. Each necklace, bracelet, and pair of earrings is a bundle of beauty that will brighten one's day and refresh one's spirit. I think women our age need that".

Frank Petrella was searching online for a Christmas gift and discovered B. Bold. Impressed by what he found there, he contacted the owner, who agreed that aligning forces might be of interest. "Our goal is to expand retail presence. To quote Casablanca, I think this could be the start of a beautiful friendship," says Southwick.
