    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.
    Thank-you

    About: Samantha Long 28 years old, and fighting for her life....

    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.
    Sincerely,
    Crystal Rochelle

    *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.

    Best,

    Ellen

  • Nashelle is heading across the country!

    It’s gearing up to be a busy summer for Nashelle!  It’s that time of year we love, where we get to travel across the country to attend several Gift and Trade Shows.
    This week, we will be in Atlanta, GA for the International Gift and Home Furnishings Market.  This is a HUGE show with multiple buildings and floors, all set up with different artisans and vendors.  So much fun to see all that is out there!
    Next week, Nashelle will be traveling to Los Angeles for the California Gift Show, which is another giant event featuring the hottest emerging product designers, artists and craftsmen. We are SO excited to be a part of this show!
    August and September will be crazy busy, and FUN , as we travel to New York City for two separate shows, The Accessorie Circuit and Fashion Coterie. The Accessorie Circuit is an awesome show that features designer and fine jewelry, handbags, and footwear all in one venue.  This event brings designers face to face with some of the most influential retailers and journalists in the global marketplace.  It is a tremendous opportunity to get the Nashelle brand out there and in the hands of more people! Fashion Coterie is another great event that gathers together like-minded artists, craftspeople, and retailers to showcase their most innovative and creative products and skills, and display and share ideas.
    Between gearing up for all these events, and the TONS of press we’ve been getting from the likes of Good Morning America, Chelsea Handler and Michelle Marie from E News, we couldn’t be more excited that Nashelle is becoming a household name! The more we get our name out there, the closer we are to reaching our goal… expanding our ‘Pay it Forward’ mission to help children and families in our community and beyond!<3<3

  • 'Be Still'

    Nashelle would like to introduce you to Steffany Woolsey. She is our newest friend that we will be supporting through her battle with cancer.  Steffany has shared her story with us, and we would now like to share it with you.  

    Steffany Woolsey is a loving wife, sister, daughter, and mother to two sons, Sawyer (4) and Calvin (2). Last summer, at age 37, she began experiencing infrequent dizzy spells and within a month was diagnosed with a grade IV brain tumor called glioblastoma multiforme, widely considered the most aggressive and most lethal form of brain cancer. Steffany underwent a successful surgery to remove the tumor in September, followed by 6 weeks of chemo and radiation; since then, she has had biweekly infusions of a treatment designed to inhibit the growth of new blood vessels that feed tumors. Her most recent scan (in May 2012) showed no new progression of the cancer, and she remains hopeful that a combination of conventional and holistic medicine will allow her a good few more years with her family and friends. You can find health updates and follow her progress on the Facebook group page "Friends of Steffy" at http://www.facebook.com/groups/friendsofsteffy/. 

    Steffany says, “My family and I have been incredibly blessed with support, love, and encouragement since my cancer diagnosis... Although I’m not glad I have cancer, I’ve been given a new appreciation for life that nothing can replace. Now, I wake up every morning grateful to be alive! I’m thankful for the energy to chase my two sons around, and I hug my husband every chance I get. My life's verse on this journey is Psalm 46:1-2: 'God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth do change.’” 


    Nashelle and Steffany have created a necklace together that reflects her experience with cancer, and her journey to recovery.  We invite you to read her story, and join us in helping Steffany and her family though this difficult time. 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of her ‘be still’ necklace will go towards easing the substantial financial load that this disease can cause. Steffany has relied heavily on her faith, her family, and her friends to battle this disease, and tells us in her own words how she came to choose ‘be still’ as her inspiring phrase for this necklace.

    “The phrase I settled on is simply ‘be still.’ It may surprise you in its simplicity, but I’ve thought about it a lot, and I feel it reflects my cancer experience on multiple levels. For example, it speaks to how cancer has helped me recognize that I’m not in control...but God is. Having brain cancer has forced me to slow down and reinvest my time, energy, and passion in things that really matter. When I choose to be still instead of letting myself fret or grow anxious, I find it much easier to choose joy in the little things—details that so easily escaped my notice back when I took my health for granted! The phrase “be still” can also be found in Psalm 46:10—“Be still and know that I am God”—where it highlights the futility in trying to be strong on my own and instead letting God carry me.”

    Steffany's necklace can be found on our website here: https://nashelle.com/shop/product/be-still-necklace

    Please help us in our support of this inspiring woman and her beautiful family!  With the help of the Nashelle community, we can truly make a difference for them and help ease the strain!<3<3

  • Nashelle proudly supports KIDS Center

    We were so blessed to be invited to a luncheon recently benefitting The KIDS Center, a child abuse intervention center here in Bend, Oregon. We heard the stories of two brave women who were victims of child abuse, but with the help of The Kid’s Center, they were able to receive treatment and begin on a path to healing through family support and therapeutic services.  This wonderful organization receives no government funding, and rely solely on the generosity of our AMAZING community!!!  With nearly 600 guests in attendance at today’s luncheon, you can see that we truly have a community that cares.  Nashelle is proud to help in the support of this much needed service, and today we were able to become a member of the  ‘Healing Hearts’ Society by donating $1000. Several generous donors in our community pledged to match each $1000 donated, up to $10,000!!!  Such generosity will help The Kid’s Center continue their vital work! Thank you to the KIDS Center for doing such important work here in our little town, and thank you to our Central Oregon family for helping them continue on their mission to provide every victim of child abuse in our town begin their road to healing!

  • Lives on the Line


    Nashelle is SO honored to be a part of this incredible collaborative project! Owner and founder Heather Straw has been recognized as a successful business woman that is making a change in our community, and we met with photographer Amanda Conde and Global Shine Project founder Amanda Stuermer today.  We enjoyed talking with them about this project and sharing stories of our children and families while Heather was having her portrait taken for the installation. We wanted to share some photos of the morning. As you can see, Heather’s youngest son Gavin was overseeing the whole thing!<3
    Our deep belief in starting locally to better the world is shared by the Global Shine Project, and we are so excited to be introduced to other inspiring members of our local family that are effecting a positive change in the world.  If you’re able, please join us on June 1st at the Oxford Hotel to view this poignant installation!
    Below is the mission statement and press release from this amazing organization:
    Lives on the Line
    Celebrating the power of women to be catalysts for change…
    Lives on the Line is an interactive, multi-media art installation featuring local women  who are creating change in their own lives, in their community, and in their world, and will be held June 1st at the Oxford Hotel in Bend, OR.  The event will include portraits by local photographer Amanda Conde, storytelling, film, and interactive elements designed to empower women in our community of all ages and backgrounds- from teenage mothers determined to stay in school to successful business women determined to make a difference.

  • Nashelle ? F.A.N.

    Recently, we had the awesome opportunity to go to a fundraiser supporting the Family Access Network. This extraordinary organization was created to support any and all families in need in the Deschutes County area.  The amount of need we have in our community alone is overwhelming. It was empowering to continue to learn how we all can help; it was equally impressive to learn how strong the support is in our community. We heard stories from parents that were able to receive help during their time of need. We heard a very personal testimony from a teen that received help and as a result, has continued on to create a positive outcome... ♥ For years, The Straw Family/Nashelle has supported F.A.N and today reaffirmed our passion for this phenomenal organization.
    Nashelle Jewelry is proud to donate a portion of our proceeds to F.A.N., Deschutes County's non-profit organization that strives to keep shoes, clothing, glasses and other basic needs on our local children that are less fortunate. We are excited to offer pieces from our best-selling 'Identity' Initial line for which the net proceeds will be donated to F.A.N., including necklaces, bracelets, and rings hand stamped with the F.A.N. logo. Find these pieces here: https://nashelle.com/shop/category/identity/P12  and please visit the Family Access Network here: http://www.familyaccessnetwork.org/
    Start locally and watch the world begin to flourish!
