We understand—Nashelle isn’t exactly your go-to when you’re brainstorming gifts for dad—but we want to change your mind on that! We have an awesome selection of Father’s Day jewelry in our ‘Nash’ Collection for men, and they might just be worth taking a look at for dad’s gift!
We have three weeks until June 21st, Father’s Day! Let’s get going…
The internet is full of some truly amazing style blogs—whether you’re in Toronto or Timbuktu, you can bet there’s a style blogger out there that covers the street style in your city. This blog is part of our series on the style bloggers that we work with here at Nashelle, and we’re excited to feature the absolutely gorgeous Jamie Kidd!
Jamie Kidd of The Blogging Jay
We stumbled upon Jamie’s instagram a couple months ago and fell in love immediately. Her style is laid back and bohemian—featuring brands like Wildheart+Soul, Feather Fox Boutique, Elcly Clothing and so many more.
We should warn you, though: if you head over to Jamie’s style blog, you’re sure to have some serious fashion envy! This girl is a pro at putting outfits together, and her photographer (who also happens to be her boyfriend) takes some truly spectacular shots!
Jamie and Nashelle
The Blogging Jay (the name of Jamie’s style blog) is a perfect fit with Nashelle, especially the pieces she chose to feature! The first piece of personalized jewelry that we sent down to Jamie Kidd was two of our cuff rings with stones on top! These rings are so much fun, and available in a variety of stones.
Personalized jewelry is what we do best. From the beginning, we’ve always been about creating jewelry that is more than a fashion statement or an accessory, but something that has meaning and value. Whether it’s the coordinates to where your son is stations overseas, or a reminder to be bold in times of hardship, our personalized jewelry is much more than just a necklace.
This personalized jewelry comes in all shapes and sizes, but our most popular piece is sweet and simple—our Initial ‘Identity’ Necklace. Typically on a 17.5” chain, this initial necklace is a cute piece to represent a love one—or the first initial of your name!
2015 has flown by, and with the end of May comes graduations! Every weekend there’s another graduation party, and if you’re scrambling for a gift for the 2015 grad in your life, we’ve got you covered. We have a few favorite personalized graduation necklaces, and we’re so excited to share them with you…
Our first two combinations are featured in the image below! You can personalize these graduation necklaces on our Chains+Charms page, by clicking the image below. We use ID Bars, ID Charms and Mini Charms on this necklace - in 14k Gold Fill or 14k Rose Gold Fill!
See more: Companies That Give Back
There are so many companies out there that give back in big ways, and we love being a part of that community that pays it forward. Krochet Kids is one such organization that has made giving back a part of their business model, as a non-profit. In addition to making some super cute bags, clothes, hats and more, this company also plays a big part in giving back.
How Krochet Kids Gives Back
Unlike some of the other companies that give back that we’ve featured in our series (TOMS, Sseko), Krochet Kids is actually a non-profit organization. They chose this business model because they felt it allowed them to be more productive on the ground in both Peru and Uganda.
What Krochet Kids does is this: they employ women in hurting countries (currently Peru and Uganda), and employs them, mentors them and helps them to save money for the things they need. In some cases, this means buying a motorcycle to be rented out for more income, it means having money to put toward nutritious meals for a family, or it could even mean having the money to buy property in her hometown.
Each piece of Krochet Kids is created by a woman in Peru and Uganda, who is working toward a better life for her and her family, and that’s the kind of cause we can stand behind! The evidence of this is showcased in each shirt, hat and bag—because each piece is actually signed!
Since Krochet Kids became an established non-profit in 2008, they’ve grown more and more, to become one of the most well-known brands that gives back, with a recognizable logo and design of their truly cute shirts! We had a fun photo shoot here at the office with one of their shirts and our Be the Change jewelry:
Happy birthday, geminis! For the next month, it’s all about you—take advantage of the month and year ahead, and enjoy every moment.
Take a look at our fun selection of gemini jewelry below—a fun straight-across bar necklace or a cute mini charm with a gem! These pieces of hand stamped gemini jewelry are some of our favorites in the whole collection, and we think you’ll love them too!
What other kind of gemini jewelry would you like to see? You can stamp it into any of our personalized jewelry—bracelets, rings, earrings and more!

Nashelle has been expanding like crazy, and our little town of Bend just can’t hold us anymore! We’re moving into the Bridgeport Village shopping center, and we’re so excited to be a part of the beautiful Portland community.
We’ve always been huge fans of Portland, Oregon – who isn’t? – and we’re excited to now be a part of the Portland jewelry community! Just a little outside of the Portland area in Tigard, Oregon, we’ll be joining brands like American Apparel, Free People, Mac Cosmetics, and so many more. We are beyond thrilled to join this fun little community, and can’t wait to bring our jewelry to Portland, Oregon.
Portland Jewelry Photo Shoot
We took a road trip from Central Oregon to the Valley this past weekend to shoot our jewelry all around Portland, and had a blast touring the city! These are a couple outtakes from the super fun day, and we’ll be sharing the rest on our new Bridgeport Village social media channels! Follow us on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM to be kept up to date with everything happening with the newest jewelry in Portland: Nashelle at Bridgeport Village!
The internet is full of some truly amazing style blogs—from bohemian to work fashion, LA-based to rural styles, there’s no limit on what you can find in regards to fashion themed bloggers. This blog is part of our series on the style bloggers that we work with here at Nashelle, and we’re excited to feature our friend Sara Hodge!
Sara Hodge of Pretty in Pink Mama
We simply can’t get enough of this lady. There aren’t enough words in the world to describe our adoration of the completely adorable, super sweet, completely amazing Sara Hodge! This style blogger has been the coolest brand advocate of Nashelle for a while now, and we love seeing her Instagram posts.
Sara’s style blog is in part about being a mom… but it’s also about being a mom with STYLE. From teething toys to outfit features, Sara has just about everything up on the Pretty in Pink Mama blog, and she’s usually wearing Nashelle too!
Sara and Nashelle
If you follow Sara on Instagram, you know she has a LOT of our jewelry! The main necklace you’ll see on Sara is one of our customized pieces that she designed herself! It’s a combination of charms, bars and gems that is specific to her—just like any piece designed on our Chains + Charms page.
Our newest jewelry is up on the website and we can’t wait for everyone to take a look! We’ve added EIGHTEEN new pieces of jewelry (necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings) to our Signature collection, and we’ve fallen in love with every one.
From statement marquis stones to wire wrapped edges, hoops to chokers, the new jewelry in our Signature line is truly magnificent. We chose our favorite stones and colors to make this line unique, and there certainly isn’t a better word for all this new jewelry!
Take a look at the newest additions in the pictures below, and click the images to be directed to the product pages!
New Bracelets in our Signature Line
Each of these bracelets inspires us more than the past. We’ve chosen 14k Gold Fill for all of our photographs, but these new jewelry cuffs are also available in Sterling Silver, 14k Rose Gold Fill and Brass. Every stone is customizable, making this personalized jewelry so much fun to mix and match with your outfits.
New Jewelry: the Earrings
These earrings are NOT for the girl who wants to blend in! Each of the new earrings in our Signature line were designed with standing out in mind. Choose a stone that matches everything—Smokey and Moonstone are great choices there—or pick one that will stand out against your hair—can we suggest a Fuchsia? Whatever you pick, we know you’re going to love these earrings.
New Necklaces in the Signature Collection
Whether you’re a choker girl or you like the kind of necklace you can layer, the new jewelry in this collection is PERFECT. We have a varied length of chains on these necklaces, and the chains are a little different than our usuals. Click through the pictures below to see the chains up close!
The Newest Rings in Signature
Last but not least, rings! Our Signature line has two new rings that are super fun. Both of these rings can be customized with the stones and metal of your choice! This new jewelry is sure to catch attention wherever you are—just another reason we love it.
We hope you love the new jewelry in our Signature line as much as we do! We have lots of new jewelry coming out in the next couple months—keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date with all the latest!
