Lovely Finds: Jewelry from YOUR DAILY JEWELS

Yes, our daily jewels!

It’s what separates us from the animals.

Wait. What?

When New York jewelry designer


was just 3 years young,

she created her first

wearable masterpiece:

a nylon necklace

with charming twists and knots

made from her mother’s stocking.

Many moons passed before

Your Daily Jewels

was born.

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


made these

for me.

Isn’t her work as an artist

and as a therapist


Peace to you right where you are.

    Oh so much gorgeousness in a single post! Love how you took the coral and turquoise dreaminess of the housey images and combined them with such stunning jewelry. Norah's pieces are heavenly and I love the earrings you've chosen. Everyone should have beautiful go-to pieces they wear all the time.

    Thanks for the mention, my gorgeous lady, hope you are having an equally gorgeous weekend!
