Norah Downey, pediatric physical therapist by day and jewelry designer by night, is the artist behind Your Daily Jewels. As a child, she was intrigued by jewelry and collected beads of all kinds. When the adult Norah needed a reward system for her young physical therapy patients, she decided to use her childhood bead collection to make simple bracelets to use as incentives.
“I told [the children] a little story behind each bead or stone in their jewelry and the kids loved it,” she says. “My pieces were a hit and I discovered a new creative outlet.”
Norah enjoys using colorful precious and semi-precious stones to create modern, glamorous, one-of-a-kind necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings that make the wearer feel beautiful every day. She is inspired by the natural colors surrounding her home in the Hudson Valley.
“I love designing something in my mind, creating it with my hands, and knowing someone is wearing my work and it is making them happy,” she says.
