Designs Borne Out of Passion
Born and raised in Graz, Austria, Almut always had a fondness for the arts, especially Opera and Classical music. At the age of 18, she was offered to shadow a goldsmith for the day at a workshop in her hometown of Graz. This single experience ignited a new found love and passion for handmade jewelry. Beginning a full-time apprenticeship in 1989, Almut Belote is now a recognized master goldsmith originating unique pieces in her workshop and boutique showroom in Thornton Park, Orlando. Almut’s extensive travels throughout Europe and South America, and her time as a goldsmith in the U.S. Virgin Islands have influenced her outlook and approach to aesthetics and design.
“I’m ruled by the thought of sharing, inspiring and empowering others. Capturing balanced proportions, my pieces emerge in an instant.”
