Creating small pieces of my imagination...
"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul... No matter our talents, education, backgrounds or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." - Dieter F. Uchtdorf
To the point: I love creating.
I especially love creating jewelry. Creating jewelry allows me to pour my mind's fanciful wishes and artistic fantasies into something tangible. I love intricate and detailed designs and aesthetics; picking apart and then analyzing the pieces of an image are very enjoyable to me. I like embellishing the simple into something grand.
I created Noria Jewelry as an outlet for my artistic expression and to be a means for supporting my artistic endeavors. I find inspiration from many Indian designs and their use of color. I also find much inspiration in the vast elements of Victorian and Edwardian styles. Stones themselves are inspiration to me. Ever since I was very young I collected rocks and cultivated a love of sparkly things. Lastly nature is a great source of inspiration. Sometimes when I find myself at a creative roadblock, I look at various types of flowers, finding patterns or color and delicate lines to help me along.
I have three small sons and an awesome husband. They are my life. We do almost everything together (except jewelry, ha ha) and live in northern Virginia.

::: If you ever have a concern, please email or convo me, whether it be with a purchase or shipping details, I am always ready to help.
::: All of my jewelry, except where noted, is intended for adult use only.
::: Sizing Policy for Watchbands: Measure around your wrist and take into account if you want a loose or tight fit (i.e. add an inch if you like a looser fit). Subtract the size of the watch face(s) of your choosing from your measurement and that is how long you might want your watch band to be. If the size posted is too large or too small, convo me and I will customize the fit for you at no extra charge (up to 6-1/2"; I will still customize fits larger than 6-1/2" but there will be a small fee, starting at $1, for cost of materials).
