give us this day...OUR DAILY JEWELSAugust 13, 2011
Yes, our daily jewels!
It's what separates us from the animals.
When New York jewelry designer
was just 3 years young,
she created her first
a nylon necklace
with charming twists and knots
made from her mother's stocking.
Many moons passed before
Norah grew older,
and writing and painting became
creative outlets until in her work
as a Pediatric Physical Therapist,
young patients suddenly re-ignited
her passion for jewelry making.
(Norah's gorgeous pieces have inspired
a very 'turquoise and coral lovely' mood
and complement images recently shared
by the must follow Swoonworthy.)
Physical therapy is frequently unpleasant,
requiring Norah to be extra innovative...
"I started making little bracelets with beads collected since I was a child.
With every bracelet, I told them funny stories about the beads,
and they loved receiving them.
It sounds corny, but my patients inspire me to be the best me
and to be creative, everyday."
The designer's primary inspiration?
"I cannot remember a time when I was not attracted to sparkling, shining, colorful beads, baubles and marbles. I have always collected these beauties, never really knowing what I would do with them."
Your Daily Jewels
brims with handmade gems
sporting a high-end look
yet affordably within reach.
"How my customer feels when wearing my jewelry is foremost in my mind when I am designing and creating. Therefore, quality and comfort are my first priority."
These lovelies have brightened
my everyday and become
MY daily jewels.
I couldn't resist styling
the earrings created by Norah
(and offered at a fabulous price point, $38).
Their yummy mix of metals
and striking contrast
is so casually elegant,
and I can't help thinking...
that the same beautiful hands
helping children to heal
Isn't her work as an artist
and as a therapist
Peace to you right where you are.
