"As a girl growing up in New Orleans, I was surrounded by antiques including my favorite - NOLA jewelry. Loving unusual, different pieces, I tried to buy antique New Orleans jewelry as I could. After moving to Hawaii, the quest widened to jewelry of other cultures and I started designing my own beautiful baubles."
"With the rise of the price of gold, it was upsetting to see costume jewelry sell for more than the price of fine jewelry. I knew there was still a way to have real, natural semi precious and precious stone jewelry and for it to still be affordable. After much searching and a few voyages to far flung places on the planet, I found it! Now I am able to share this with you. Enjoy! Being born in New Orleans and having Brazilian parents gave me the best of both worlds when it came to Mardi Gras & Carnival. We celebrated both traditions for the same holiday. Please check out the Mardi Gras Trinity collection which honors this special holiday."
"When the Chakras are balanced and flowing, we can create a life of harmony, health and spiritual awakening. Chakra stones are used to heal each individual Chakra. NOLA Jewels offers natural gemstones set in sterling silver at an affordable price so all can receive the benefits of the healing properties of stones."
"All jewelry is beautifully hand-made in 92.5 sterling silver and accented with natural semi-precious hand-set stones we chose to best enhance each Chakra. Amethyst is used to open the spiritual and psychic centers. It helps with insomnia and headaches. Iolite is a stone of vision and creative expression. It stimulates memory and helps with sleep imbalances. Blue Topaz heals and energizes any place where it is most needed. It is a promoter of truth and forgiveness and will create communication. Peridot is a protector against negative emotions. Citrine attracts abundance and maintains it as well. It is good for mental focus, endurance and self-esteem. Carnelian is a stone of balance, perception and eliminates negativity. Garnet is a stone of health, commitment, devotion and passion. It stimulates Kundalini and assists in the flow of energy."
"Using all 7 gemstones together will concentrate the properties in the stones, aligning the 7 chakras in your body leaving you more balanced. We offer fair trade jewelry with a conscience - every purchase provides school lunches to a needy child in a developing country. Help us help others!"
