Eco Inspired Jewelry
“Jewelry is a way to connect with the beauty that surrounds us and to express ourselves”
Nathalia believes in jewelry made of nature’s resources as a form to represent all that mother-nature provides, and the beauty we need in our lives.
She has worked with Information Technology for many years, but deep inside she always dreamed of doing something else, something that she could use her imagination and creativity, although she has never thought about herself as being a creative person!
Nathalia’s passion for jewelry started late in her life with a necklace made of a fiber-like plant named “golden grass” that is originally from her country of Brazil. Getting to know the history behind that piece ,and all lives that are touched by its powerful shine, made her want to be part of this chain that connects and empowers women and men through their craft.
Each piece of her jewelry carries the energy of artisans hands who work with her, giving to that jewelry an unique history and identity. Through her jewelry, someone`s dream can come true.
Together, lets make this dream come true.
