In 2015, Nathalie came into a large collection of sterling silver jewelry findings from her husband’s late grandmother, who had sold them in New Mexico for over 30 years. Despite having never made jewelry before, Nathalie felt inspired. She bought some beads and put together several bracelets in her free time. Before long, Nathalie realized that she had a knack for creating beautiful pieces that were at once glamorous and casual — and she hasn’t stopped since.
Creativity has always been a part of Nathalie’s vocabulary. For twenty years, she worked as a professional DJ (djdazy.com), but her creative interests expanded well beyond music. At 12 years old, she discovered a love for cooking while working in the kitchen of her parents’ restaurant, the first Thai restaurant in Salt Lake City. This passion led to the creation of a food blog (nathalieskitchen.com) where Nathalie shares many of her favorite recipes. Each creative endeavor she takes on is driven by real passion and heart, and it shows in her work.
Based out of Los Angeles, Nathalie sells her pieces through private in-home demonstrations and at local fairs and bazaars. Each June, she hosts an annual party where her entire inventory is displayed and on sale — the perfect mother-daughter night out. However, this venture isn’t all about profit and the bottom line.
Giving back is also incredibly important to Nathalie because she believes that jewelry shouldn’t just make you look good, but feel good as well. Over the last two years, Nathalie has sold her uniquely chic jewelry everywhere from Children’s Tumor Foundation events and cancer fundraisers, to private school charity sales. In each of those cases, she donated 25% of her earnings.
Being a full-time wife and mother while also running a virtual mailbox company means that free time is at a premium. In spite of that fact, Nathalie devotes her time to searching for rare findings during trips to the Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Thailand, as well as making stylish and elegant necklaces, earrings, and bracelets that perfectly encapsulates her creative passion and stylish attitude.
