Barbara Forman, a native New Yorker, now living in the Southwest, is the designer & owner of BDDesigns which she debuted in 2004.
The success of her line can be attributed to her passion for jewelry designing, her creative flair and eclectic artistry. The impetus for launching her company came when her youngest son was diagnosed with High Functioning Autism at a very young age.
She knew designing was an outlet for her to share her creative vision and prove to herself that while her son works hard to face his daily challenges, she too can gain a tremendous sense of self worth and fulfillment from dedicating her energy to this labor of love.
BD Designs are handcrafted pieces that are made from natural elements- semi-precious stones along with an assortment of other fine materials. Experiencing BD Designs creates a feeling of comfort and freedom. Bohemian style, fun and casual, to sophisticated and chic is what brings BD Designs styles to life.
Barbara is always exploring the latest trends and keeping her customers wowed with her innovative designs. Each style is created meticulously and with lots of love. Barbara’s devotion to her art thrives on her constant discovery of new design ideas, and the process of seeing them come to life.
