This past Saturday I had the pleasure of working/attending the Paula Michelle trunk show held at Nubian Hueman Boutique in Washington DC. Paula showcased her beautiful handcrafted jewelry from her current line Juxtaposed as well as some new goodies from the pre-fall 2015 line. I had been checking out her handcrafted jewelry online (via her website) weeks leading up to the trunk show. I was deeply impressed. However, her handcrafted jewelry is even more beautiful up close. Pictures really don’t do it justice. Her artistry and craftsmanship is amazing. I’ve always been interested in jewelry with natural healing crystals simply for the aesthetic. I actually used to collect rocks as a child. I collected quartz, amethyst, jasper, sandstone and many others. Quartz were pretty common for me to collect because they were everywhere. Quartz are infused in so many of the Paula Michelle pieces. It was a hard decision because there was just so much to choose from (plus I’m on a budget) but I decided to purchase the quartz wire wrapped ring pictured below.
Quartz is a power stone. It has been called the “Universal Crystal” because of it’s many uses. It enhances energy by absorbing, storing, amplifying, balancing, focusing & transmitting. It channels universal energy. Quartz also enhances thoughts, as they are a form of energy. Because it directs & amplifies energy, it is extremely beneficial for manifesting, healing, meditation, protection, & channeling.
The Paula-Michelle jewelry line has something for everyone. Whether you take the minimalistic route when wearing jewelry or if you like to rock it big and bold. This jewelry line definitely has something for you, no matter your preference. Take a look at some more beautiful pieces below.
You can view more of her Juxtaposed collection on her website here. *Fun Facts* Paula was named after her father Paul and her middle name is Michelle hence Paula Michelle! She is also a woman of many hats. She is a designer and curator. Read more about her other talents and the birth of her jewelry line here. Be sure to check out the Paula Michelle website and Instagram below and stay up to date with the jewelry line. I will definitely purchase again some more Paula Michelle jewelry. I just get this Boho Chic/care free/Jhene Aiko/earthy/Black Girl Magic vibe from this jewelry line. Yes all of that! Plus I really love my ring. For all of my DMV folks, Paula Michelle is now available at Nubian Hueman Boutique (online and at the store). For all of my Chicago folks, it is available at Sat Nam Yoga Chicago.
