The best times in our year are when we’re able to unveil new styles, and this is one of those times… we are so excited about all of our new stamps, to add to our hand stamped jewelry!
If you’ve spent any time on our website, you’ll recognize the image—it’s all of the stamps available for our hand stamped jewelry. What’s new? We’re glad you asked…
We are BEYOND excited about how adorable this stamp is! Living in the Pacific Northwest, we’re constantly outdoors, getting our boots muddy and living that outdoorsy lifestyle. This stamp is more than perfect for the Northwest spirit that is a huge part of our brand, and life here!
Coming at a perfect time, accompanying our Arrowhead Ring, this stamp symbolizes the adventurer, the woman who can’t shake the wanderlust, the constant nomad. This stamp would look so cute alongside a wire wrapped stone in Forest—or alongside another charm with the Mountains stamp!
Martini Glass Stamp
As H. L. Mencken put it: “Martinis are the only American invention as perfect as a sonnet.” We won’t disagree!
Mini Arrow Stamp
Our obsession with arrows is well documented both on Pinterest and on our website, and it continues with an all-new arrow stamp in our collection—the Mini Arrow. This smaller version fits on our Mini Charms and looks absolutely perfect paired with one of our feather charms!
What’s your favorite of our new stamps?
When it comes to charming jewelry, our Lucky collection has them all beat! Tiny charms and simple shapes make up this collection of handmade jewelry—simple and wonderful designs for every woman!

Sometimes you just have to embrace your inner child, and take it way back... back to climbing trees, secret handshakes, trampolines and of course - friendship jewelry! Our 'Friends Forever' necklace set is the perfect example of that childhood innocence, and it's a perfectly refreshing necklace for grown-ups too! Handmade right here in the USA.

It’s a month all about women, and we are beyond excited to be able to feature some amazing women creators here in our community of Bend, Oregon. This area is brimming with creative talent, and we’ve had the pleasure of being a part of it for fifteen years now!
Madison Hartley, owner and designer at A Native Bloom, is one of the Maker Women here that we simply adore. We’re constantly drooling over her instagram, and we love seeing the collaborations and workshops she does in the area!

Broad City, The Graduate
I really try to invest in quality pieces that are independently designed and fairly produced. Some of my favorite designers are Elizabeth Suann, Osei-Duro, Ace & Jig and Lauren Winter Co.

How long has A Native Bloom been going?
One year in January.
What inspired you to start arranging?
I worked for a florist in college while I was studying painting. It wasn't till a few years after graduating that I revisited the works of the Dutch Masters from the 16th century. The flowers they painted had such depth and life. At some point I made the connection that this is the way flowers are supposed to move, even inside a vase.

What are the pros and cons about your work, about owning your own business?
Pros would definitely be flexibility, creativity, and freedom. I love collaborating with others to put together creative projects. Editorial styling is something I'm getting much more interested in.
Cons would be the constant battle to not take everything personally. Often it's hard to separate myself from my brand since myself as a designer and artist is so connected to everything I do. It's a learning process but each day I think I’m getting better. Now, I’m at the point where I’m learning to say no to things that aren't the direction I want to head with my flowers. Scary but liberating.
What’s your favorite kind of flower to work with?
Besides heirloom garden roses (Which are available almost year round.) I love working with what is most seasonably fresh that week. A lot of my time is spent researching flowers varieties and unique foliage. I'm more connected to the changing of the seasons than ever before. I know what it means for the flower market when the temperature goes up ten degrees.
When you’re not working, what are you doing?
Is this a trick question? Because my weeks and months are planned out so far in advance, in my free time I’m usually planning blitz trips to the coast, red wood groves, or Portland. The Pacific Northwest has an endless supply of weekend trips!

Spring fashion is HERE and we’re loving it! As the weather gets warmer and we start shedding layers, the styles of spring and summer are getting us so excited! Sunshine means skirts and florals and so much fun!
A few of the fashion bloggers we collaborate with have put together some super cute spring styles for the warmer weather! Take a look at our favorites below…

There is so much we’re looking forward to for this spring! We know 2015 is going to be a good one.
Anti-Bullying has long been a subject close to the heart of our founder, Heather Nashelle. Every child experiences the pain of bullying in one form or another: at home, at school, being left out, being the last chosen, cyber-bullying and so much more. Sometimes, it's so subtle that we don't even see it, and sometimes we see it too late.
No child should ever have to go through the pain of bullying, and Nashelle's owner Heather knows that personally, as she's seen it happen through the eyes of her children.
That's why this cause is so close to our hearts here at Nashelle, and that's what lead to Heather touring Central Oregon, speaking in classrooms, assemblies, parties and more - talking about bullying, as well as kindness.
The below feature from Central Oregon's MyWindow talks a little more about exactly what happens during these talks and classes with Heather!
We have been blessed in many ways here at Nashelle, and we are so blessed to be able to give back to organizations that inspire us. From the Farley Project to Feeding America, we’ve been able to meet amazing leaders, talk with the innovators behind some truly exciting movements, and see the results of people coming together for a cause.
One way that we give back is through our Be the Change jewelry—our Be the Change Ring and Be the Change Necklace. 50% of the net proceeds of these pieces goes back to Food for the Hungry’s work supporting female entrepreneurs all over the world!

This blog post is a part of our celebration of Women’s History Month!
Maya Angelou. She could form words and inspire people in a way that many can only dream of. Her 86 years were filled with life and love and a myriad of amazing accomplishments—from acting and dancing to writing and speaking, Maya was and continues to be a light and a source of motivation for millions.
Maya Angelou overcame countless hardships in her life—racism, sexual abuse, poverty and so much more. And not only did she get past these adversities, she blasted past them with a sweet grace unlike any other. First lady Michelle Obama called Angelou “one of the greatest spirits our world has ever known,” and Oprah said she “moved through the world with unshakable calm, confidence and a fierce grace.”
Maya authored over thirty books during her lifetime, and was the first black woman author to have a nonfiction book on the New York Times bestseller list. This woman has been such an inspiration to us here at Nashelle, and she has touched us all in so many ways.
What’s your favorite piece of work or quote by Maya Angelou?
Women’s History Month starts tomorrow, and we are so excited to celebrate it! This month is all about the women leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs. The woman who runs a business while raising kids, the woman who took a bullet so she could learn to read, and kept going to school. The woman who started a fashion line before women could even vote—the woman who inspired millions through words.
This month is also about the future—about the women who will continue to innovate, because of their role models in the past. Confucius said “Study the past if you would define the future,” and we’re ready to define the future as equal. Gender equality is what we’re striving for, and the women in our past are the people who paved the way for us.
Who are the women that inspire you?
