Okay, it’s thirty minutes until the birthday/anniversary/big date… and you haven’t bought a gift yet. Shoot! When there simply isn't time to pick out a gift, there’s one place to turn: gift cards!
Reasons That Gift Cards Are the Best
- They’re quick and easy
- They allow her to pick out exactly what she wants—no exchanges!
- They can be hidden in a coat pocket until the right moment
- They’re perfect for the Mother-in-Law you don’t know very well
Sure, picking out and customizing a piece is the ideal situation—but when you’re in a rush and that isn't going to happen, we promise she’ll love a gift card!
FASHION WEEK – no matter where it is in the world, we are watching and gasping at new styles, fun trends and the latest and greatest in the fashion world.
This past week, we got to watch photos stream in from our one of the greatest cities in the world—New York! NYFW wraps up today, and we’re still gawking at the photos rounded up from the week. We couldn’t love the runway more.
Our Favorites from Fashion Week
Some outfits are a little crazy for us—it is New York Fashion Week after all—but we have to say that there were some outfits that we couldn’t get enough of! The fashion week pictures below are just a few of our favorite moments and designs from NYFW.
The Oscar de la Renta show—such a beautiful way to remember such an amazing man and a designer that will never be forgotten. Stunning designs, beautiful models and an emotional catwalk, after his death last year.
And who can forget the classic moment with this front row at Kanye’s Adidas unveiling?
The absolutely stunning red dresses at the Go Red for Women catwalk—and our girl, Laverne Cox spinning in this number...
The Michael Kors catwalk was just yesterday, and the simple spring styles were a sight to behold after a week of some extreme fashion. This cute shirt and skirt combo is just one of the many styles we’re excited to see in upcoming collections!
Plus, we spotted Bill Cunningham snapping pictures on the corner of the Michael Kors runway—we love seeing that guy anywhere.
Equality at New York Fashion Week
Fashion took a HUGE step at New York Fashion Week this year, and it was way past time that it happened. We were SO thrilled to see the world of style really take a step back and remember that fashion isn’t all about stick-thin models with perfect skin—it’s about expressing yourself. It’s about being YOU, whoever you is!
This culminated perfectly with the Role Models Not Runway Models catwalk from Carrie Hammer. This catwalk was all about showcasing women to look up to—not bodies to look up to! We LOVE the idea behind Carrie’s catwalk. This catwalk featured NYFW’s first Downs Syndrome model, loads of women in leadership and great role models in general.
Another notable part of New York Fashion Week was the incomparable Winnie Harlow! If you haven’t heard of her yet, get ready for it! This gorgeous woman has vitiligo—but it hasn’t stopped her from hitting the catwalk at NYFW, rocking Desigual! Her skin disease used to be why she was bullied in school, but now she’s one of the most celebrated models in the fashion world.
Fashion Week with Nashelle
While we didn’t have the time to make it up to New York Fashion Week this year, we definitely had jewelry there...
The Brooklyn Stylist, Liz Teich, rocked our Sidra ‘Pure’ Necklace on the first day of NYFW! This girl is so much fun, and we love seeing her rock our jewelry!
Another rockstar wore our Verge Rings at New York Fashion Week—television personality Rosci Diaz.

We took a break from our Nashelle wholesaler features for a while, but we’re excited to bring them back and continue to showcase the amazing companies that we work with, all over the world.
Today’s feature is the amazing Soel Boutique, located in Provo, Utah! These guys have been open since 2003, and we’ve had the pleasure of working with them since 2007! These eight years of working with Soel have been absolutely lovely, and we are so happy to have them as one of our wholesale partners.
The History of Soel Boutique
The lovely Shelby Russell started Soel Boutique out of a love for everything fashion. Shelby took a simple sewing class in high school, and was inspired to create a full-fledged clothing line, which she named Soel Clothing. This high end clothing line became a huge success within Utah, and Shelby decided to create a boutique out of it.
Partnering with a local yoga studio, Soel Boutique quickly became the premier boutique within Utah County, and they started incorporating other brands, including Free People, TOMS, Seychelles, Citizen Jeans and so many more.
Soel + Nashelle
Soel Boutique first started ordering Nashelle jewelry back in 2007, now eight years ago! You can find many of our classic handmade pieces in their storefront, rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces.
Thanks for being such a dear to work with, Soel, we’re looking forward to many more years!
Every month, we anticipate the change in the astrological signs, and as we complete the sign of the Aquarius, we’re excited to welcome those of you with late February and early March birthdays… it’s time for Pisces!
We thought now would be a good time to highlight our favorite zodiac Jewelry, as we get over that mercury being in retrograde, and say farewell to Aquarius until next year! Can you believe it’s already the second turning of the zodiac in 2015?! This year is already going by so fast!
Zodiac Bar Necklaces
Our favorite zodiac jewelry from our ‘Identity’ collection, would of course have to be our zodiac bar necklaces! Available in either 14k Gold Fill or Sterling Silver, these sweet little bar necklaces feature your printed sign, along with a small stamp of the same!

Featuring one of our small circle charms and a baby gem in the color of your birth month, these sweet little necklaces are the perfect birthday gift—whether it’s for yourself or someone else!

What’s your sign?
If you haven’t seen the CW’s hit show, Hart of Dixie, you’re missing out! This show is adorable, sweet, hilarious and SO fashionable! We are constantly obsessing over Zoe Hart’s outfits, and we simply cannot get over how cute that Wade is. (and George, and Lavon!!)
We were so excited when the show started, when one of the show’s stylists reached out to us to feature our jewelry on the show—our wide variety of jewelry is an excellent fit for the varying outfits and styles between the characters on Hart of Dixie!
Zoe Hart Jewelry Style
The main character, Zoe Hart, is seen most often rocking Nashelle:

AnnaBeth Nass Jewelry
In a recent episode, one of our favorite side characters, AnnaBeth Nass, rocked our Hyami Earrings, and they look absolutely spectacular on her! Perfect for her fun and cute style:
Do you watch the show? Which character has your favorite style on Hart of Dixie?
You know us – we love a good award show! We just passed by the Golden Globes, and the Oscars are less two weeks away, so it’s time to talk about the Grammys!
2014 was a whirlwind of new music, and we are so impressed by every artist out there. Whether you’re an Iggy Azalea fan, or you can’t stop listening to Taylor Swift (so, all of us), there was new music for everyone this year… and we’re pretty sure everyone deserved a hundred Grammy Awards!
But… that’s not how it works. We were SO happy to see 20 Feet from Stardom receive best Music Film of the year. It was such a brilliant film and it definitely deserved the Grammy! And of course, we weren’t surprised to see Stay With Me win Song of the Year. We’ve all heard that song about a thousand times since it’s been released—whether you’re a fan or not!
Best rock song? Ain’t It Fun, of course! It’s so fun seeing Paramore back on the music scene—they’re a truly talented group, and they totally deserved this Grammy!
— hayley from Paramore (@yelyahwilliams) February 8, 2015
What can we say… BEYONCE. We are never disappointed with a Beyonce performance, and she ROCKED it. And what about Ed Sheeran?? We loved seeing that guy perform with John Mayer, Jeff Lynne, Herbie Hancock and Questlove!
Not sure if anyone will argue with us on this one, but we’re pretty sure Gwen Stefani and Adam Levine stole the night with their performance of My Heart is Open.
Grammy Red Carpet
But of course, you know what we really care about—that RED CARPET STYLE! And boy, oh boy—we weren’t disappointed with what they had to offer!
We love the gorgeous white on Ariana!! Taylor… is there anything she wears that we don’t love?? Katy Perry’s ‘do is giving us some serious hairspiration. Iggy’s hair caused some debate across the board, but there’s no denying that blue is perfect on her! Nikki… you go, girl.
Sia—while we don’t understand why you shy away from the camera, we adore you, no matter what. And the way she pulled this off is amazing!
And Rihanna, you are brilliant! You got a lot of flack for this gorgeous dress, but you KNOW every woman watching was filled with nostalgia, and a desperate need to dress up in pastels again!
What did you think of the awards this year? Are there any artists you thought should’ve won? Who was your favorite of the red carpet styles?
We’re clearing the way for new designs and styles, so we have to get rid of some old stock! Take a few minutes to peruse our selection of fun styles for men, women and children…

“Where we love is home - home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.”
- Oliver Wendell Holmes
Something that doesn’t get talked about often enough is the importance of place. The importance of having a place to call home, whether it IS a home, or an office or even a coffee shop that means something to you. We all have a wonderful sense of nostalgia when we call up images of the place we got married, or the camp where we spent our grade school summers. Place is important.
That’s not to say that it’s a bad thing to pick up and move across the country, or that there’s something wrong with loving to travel or be away from home—it just means that there is a strong sense of love or longing for a single place in our life. That place can be your home, but it can also be the city you traveled to for your 10 year anniversary, or the town where your grandmother grew up.
Wherever it is, it’s nice to identify and know what that place is—whether you go back to that city or not. That’s why we created these coordinates necklaces, to show our love for wherever we come from (or wherever we’re going), and keep those coordinates close to our hearts.
We’re already three weeks into the New Year!! We’re loving every minute of 2015, but we’re amazed at how fast it’s already speeding by, and it’s time to take advantage of this New Year madness to get our 2015 resolutions in order.
Here are a few of our resolutions for the twelve months of 2015… what are some of yours?
We are constantly getting inspiration from the world around us—from stones to trees and skyscrapers to sandcastles. Our designers take from the world around us to make beautiful things, and we love that there is so much to enjoy in the world around us.
Letting yourself be inspired seems like an odd resolution, but there is something to be said for taking walk and letting the fresh air breathe new life into your skin. For taking a moment to watch a river flow by and imagine how it could change you, or the way you think. For listening to a symphony and giving yourself a chance to let it give your soul new life.
We resolve to be inspired by the everyday!
This resolution is at the core of Nashelle’s vision. For every piece of jewelry we make, we donate to organizations that feed the hungry. We also have various programs that support families dealing with cancer, women entrepreneurs in third world countries, and Anti-Bullying campaigns. But there is so much more that this world needs, and we want to help however we can!
We’re excited to expand our Anti-Bullying campaign in this New Year, working with amazing organizations like The Farley Project and Legacy X to help kids who are being bullied, as well as spreading the mission of love and kindness in schools!
TRY NEW THINGS
This has got to be one of our favorite resolutions… trying new things! A little vague, perhaps—but exciting all the same. We took a step into the realm of new things this month, with the launch of our new line, Omni! This line is very different from our more famous personalized jewelry, but it’s a fun step in a new direction for us!
We’re also really excited about our new sister company that joined Nashelle back in 2014, Ija! If you haven’t had a chance to take a look at their website yet, be sure to visit www.ijadesigns.com and see what they have! We love everything about this company, and we’re excited to see them expand in the New Year.
What are some of the resolutions that you have for the New Year? Share with us on Facebook, we want to hear from you!
It takes a dedicated community to step forward and say, "We will not let our people go hungry." Showing compassion and love for our fellow humans enriches the body and soul, and Central Oregon is great at giving back.
Throughout Central Oregon, people have a place to turn to, because organizations are ready to help make a difference. NeighborImpact is one of those not-for-profit organizations, dedicated to helping families at every stage of their lives. NeighborImpact empowers individuals and families to better their lives, so they can become successful in what they do, and provide a safe and healthy lifestyle for their children. Operating since 1985, this nonprofit provides a wealth of services for people in need.
NeighborImpact provides housing assistance, heating and energy assistance, and childcare resources—and they also provide a regional food bank for individuals and families who struggle to put meals on the table. NeighborImpact gathers food from businesses and individuals in our community, and distributes them to local food pantries in the Central Oregon region.
Showing compassion and love for people is always a worthwhile endeavor, and as we band together to help the less fortunate, the community grows stronger as a whole. Organizations like NeighborImpact make a daily difference for people who are in need, and we love being able to be a part of what they do.
For every piece of jewelry that leaves the Nashelle warehouse, we donate a plate of food through NeighborImpact locally, and Feeding America nationally. We are so blessed to have an amazing local organization like NeighborImpact in our community, and we love that we’re able to help support the less fortunate in the Central Oregon cities!
Help us support NeighborImpact by donating to their organization, or getting involved through volunteer efforts! Visit their website at www.neighborimpact.org, and spread the love!
