Shop Of The Week: Jewelry By NaLa

As with many artists, talent comes through their work and they prefer to say very little about themselves when asked.  Such is the case of this extraordinary jewelry artist, NaLa of Jewelry By NaLa.  A native of Chicago, she loves Chicago sports teams and is a true blue fan!
 
Her love of DIY projects found her early. She was inspired by HGTV, TLC and Discovery Channel TV personalities such as Lynette Jennings, Nancy Golden, Carol Duvall and Christopher Lowell. NaLa tried it all and found a passion for creating jewelry from her heart.  As she created more of the things she loved, others began to notice.  A friend suggested she sell her creations on Etsy.  The rest is history.
 
 
 
 
Her appreciation for the outdoors and vintage designs is reflected in much of her work from the most intricate flower designs to her earthy chains and vintage inspired pieces.  NaLa’s attention to detail sets her apart from others and shows in her choice of color, design and meaning put in every piece she creates.

We asked her if she had a favorite quote or passage and she shared this with us:  "One of my two favorite quotes comes from French philosopher and writer, Michel de Montaigne: "Let us permit Nature to have Her way. She understands Her business better than we do.""
NaLa may be a bit shy, but once you experience her jewelry, you will know who she is and that she creates from her soul.
