    we invite you to consider these great options from Nashelle:

    • ‘Be Still’ Necklace:  100% of the net proceeds from this necklace go to Steffany Woolsey, a Central Oregon mom who is battling a serious brain tumor.  Steffany chose the phrase ‘be still’ as a reminder to slow down and reinvest time, energy, and passion into things that really matter.

    • ‘Pay It Forward’ Bracelets: At only $10, these make GREAT stocking stuffers! You can feel proud in giving a gift that truly makes a difference! For a limited time, 100% of the net proceeds from these special bracelets go to East Coast Disaster Relief, to aid the victims of Hurricane Sandy!  The ‘Pay It Forward’ bracelets are designed to be an everyday  symbol of love, of recognition, of the global community that we are all a part of, and to remind each of us to pay it forward at every opportunity.

  • Nashelle Giving Back to Local Schools

    Nashelle’s owner and founder Heather Straw knows what’s important! She takes time out of her busy professional life and crazy family schedule to bring the arts to our local schools… Seven Peaks School has been one of the lucky schools that Heather has brought her jewelry making expertise to. She shares her knowledge and creativity with these middle school students to bring them a little bit of passion and inspiration. Armed with metals, gemstones, tools, and years of experience, she helps them create their own masterpieces; jewelry they are proud to wear, gift, and show off!  These classes also teach them Nashelle’s mission of paying it forward… each student is also required to create a piece to donate to either Sparrow Club or the Family Access Network. Raising money for these organizations teaches them the importance of giving back to their community, something that is so dear to Heather’s heart.  It’s Heather’s goal to be able to encourage kids everywhere to partake in the arts, to never stop creating, and to ‘Pay it Forward!’ <3<3
    A special thanks goes to Kimberly Teichrow Photography for the amazing photos! http://www.kimberlyteichrow.com/ <3


  • Jewelry Trends at Paris Fashion Week!

    Rumor has it the biggest jewelry trend at Paris’s ready-to-wear fashion show this month is just that… BIG! Seen everywhere from  Givenchy, Chanel, and Lanvin, the statement was that big and bold  metal necklaces and bracelets were THE go-to item to pair with the latest fashions.  From many of fashion’s names, metal was the jewelry material of the day, including lots of darkened metals such as oxidized silver and warm golds and brass with a rich patina.
    The best thing about these trends is that they are ready to wear, and so easy to incorporate into your wardrobe! Here are some of our favorites!

    1. Shield ‘Pure’ Necklace…  A best seller!  A gorgeous plate of brass for the ultra-statement necklace! http://1. Shield ‘Pure’ Necklace… A best seller! A gorgeous plate of brass for the ultra-statement necklace! https://nashelle.com/shop/product/shield-pure-necklace

  • Our latest 'Pay it Forward' Mission!

    We are THRILLED to announce the latest ‘Pay it Forward’ mission from Nashelle! After much dreaming, planning, hard work, and excitement, one of our biggest wishes is finally coming true!  With every piece of jewelry Nashelle sells, we will be donating one meal to local or national food banks!

    We are proud to partner with local non-profit Neighbor Impact, a private nonprofit organization established to serve and speak out for economically disadvantaged people in Central Oregon. Their mission is to break the cycle of poverty by helping remove the barriers that prevent people from achieving economic self-sufficiency.
    Their work is founded on confidence that the community, including local governments, the private sector and low-income persons, can work together to forge solutions to both the immediate impacts of poverty and its long-term causes. Please visit www.neighborimpact.org for more information.

    Nationally, we will be working with Feeding America, the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Their mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger. Through their networks of food banks, Feeding America distributes over 3 billion pounds of food a year! To find out more, and to see ways YOU can help, visit www.feedingamerica.org.

    We are so excited that we are able to share the success we have had, and to have the opportunity to ‘pay it forward’ and help children and families across the country put healthy meals on the table and work towards a better future! ‘Start locally and watch the world begin to flourish!’

  • 'Inspiration Giveaway' Winners!

    We would like to share the inspiring stories of the three women who won our ‘Inspiration Giveaway.’  These three women were nominated by friends or family, and you can see what an impact they have had on others around them. Whether they have met difficult circumstances with grace and determination, lived a full life with compassion and kindness, or pushed for a better world around them, we were truly inspired by their stories, and are excited to shower them with Nashelle love!
    Here are their stories:

    Samantha Long
    I work with a 28 year who has the stamina that is unbelievable. She faced Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, fought it bravely, while all the time continuing her daily teaching, continuous fund raising (which she has always done), and going for her doctorate. She has a wonderful boyfriend who  is there for her, as well as a wonderful family and huge circle of friends.
    After her battle, she thought she was cancer free, but they found pancreatic cancer and had to do a Whipple surgery, which at 28 is hardly heard of. She went through that and was about to return to work, when she got a further diagnosis. She had a MET in her liver. She is about to have another surgery. Through this, she has still stayed positive and has made a blog about this journey. The first time I wrote this she hadn't done a video on Youtube, but I'm hoping you will look at it for a minute, and decide yourself why she should be nominated. She has a million friends and prayers out there, and all she thinks about is making a goal in the charity (unfortunately, she wound up getting that particular kind of cancer. )
    She's bright, funny, beautiful inside and out, and I hate to think of a world without her spirit, but as she says, her spirit will never be gone while she's here to fight.
    The video is http://youtu.be/WGqbqCEYBd8 youtube: In Just One Year- Sam’s fight. Take a look.

    Stephanie Gray Cox
    I want to nominate one of my best friends for the mom award. Her name is Stephanie Cox. I want to nominate her because I admire all that she does. I am recently a new mom and never knew how hard of a job it truly is. Stephanie was recently widowed in April when her husband was killed in a motorcycle accident. I watch and just admire all that she does to take care of her and her two boys. I dont know how she does it all. From just everyday activities to doing special things with them. I know that some days have to be really hard for her and having to do it all alone. I think she deserves this truly awesome giveaway for all she does for Grayson and Dalton and never really getting the reward she deserves. It would be a great gift in what has been a really hard year for her.

    *Stephanie was nominated multiple times by different people (some of whom wished to remain anonymous) and we can see that she is very much an inspiration to those around her!

    Linda Gott
    Dear Nashelle Family,

    My mom is the best person I know, and hands-down the best person I'll ever know. She's everything I want to be, but I know that if I could become even half the person she is, that would be an accomplishment. My mom (Linda) has had a harder set of circumstances to deal with in her life than most. I've often struggled understanding how so many bad things can happen to such a wonderful person, but her constant faith, grace, and humor in all these situations remind me to look at the positive, grateful for each day. When I was 5, she was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin’s Lymphoma that had entered her liver--a beyond-daunting diagnosis. She rolled in to her first day of full-body radiation wearing a Groucho Marx glasses/nose/mustache set, and proceeded with that same sense of spirit throughout a long but winning battle with cancer. In the years since, her health has been far from easy, details that go unnoticed to most due to her lack of complaint. She spends every waking moment caring for those around her and honestly forgetting to take care of herself most of the time. When I'm home from college I volunteer to go to the grocery store because I know if she goes it will take hours--everyone wants to talk to Mom and hear her advice.

    Last year, I got a call I never expected--my dad telling me that mom had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Just like that, the journey began again. As of last week, she is three months cancer-free, and I couldn't be more thankful. My mom, sister, and I all wear our "Be Still" necklaces as a constant reminder of our faith, love, hope, blessings, and so much more. If there's one person I know who lives out the message of "being still" every day, it's my mom. In the midst of her treatment last year, I really wanted to take some time off from college to be at home with her, but I felt that she wanted me to continue with school. When we'd talk on the phone she'd express concern about my classes, whether I was eating enough, and more--just another example of her extreme selflessness. I don't know what I'm doing with my life, and that's fine...I just want it to be something that matters. I want my mom to be proud of me. And while I've always wholeheartedly believed, grounded in what my parents live out, that it's important to do what you want regardless of the money, I want to be able to spoil my mom a little. She truly deserves it.

    Thank you so much for all that you do at Nashelle. Despite not living in Bend anymore, I really appreciate keeping up with all that you are doing in and for the community.
