Feature Friday: Catherine Nicole
We enjoy highlighting one of many unique brands in our "Feature Friday" blog posts.
Catherine Nicole is the perfect jewelry company. It empowers young women, is cast with recycled metals and avoids the use of non-renewable materials, it's hand fabricated, and features brilliant crystals and gemstones. One of their main focuses is their customers. They want their buyers to be thrilled with their shopping and purchasing experience, so they work hard to make sure they are there every step of the way, from answering questions and helping you pick out the perfect piece for your lifestyle! What's not to love?
It gets better: The Catherine Nicole Project was started to support her joint efforts with BRAC to prevent young girls from becoming child brides. Five dollars from every Catherine Nicole sale contributes to her project and empowers a young Ugandan woman with an education and a micro-loan to start her own business. If this sounds like any of the causes you support, be sure to read more on the project and visit the website to take a look at her beautiful jewelry.
The jewelry at Catherine Nicole is made for everyday ornamentation. Each Catherine Nicole style exudes an effortless, timeless and bold statement of femininity. Her pieces will complete any kind of outfit and will quickly become a staple in your jewelry collection. Each style has also been selected with special consideration to the interplay of light and movement. With all of this information, you can be sure that the jewelry you're buying is coming from a place of careful thought and consideration. Catherine says nothing comes between her and her customers; she specializes in well-constructed jewelry that makes a statement. It comes directly from her to you, with love, amazing quality, great costs, and no factories or middleman.
Catherine was inspired at a young age by the ethnic dress of indigenous cultures and by the idea that stories could be told by what we wear. She is well traveled, has been to India, Africa, South America, Asia and the West Indies, and has collected information about cultures and customs through her travels. Her interest in the ornamentation of these ancient cultures contextualized itself. This, combined with her formal studies and natural intuition for color theory and design, provide the foundation for her unique pieces in her Austin-based jewelry collection.
