Designer Natalie Joy Miller developed the Natalie Joy jewelry line in the winter of 2010 inside of a walk in closet in Portland, Oregon. After studying and creating small-scale sculptures at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, she spent five years as a manager at a large scale jewelry production company hand making and distributing jewelry to hundreds of boutiques across the country. After fine tuning her technical and business skills, the desire to create a jewelry line of her own came naturally, with plant mobiles soon to follow.
“For as long as I can remember I have been a tangible person with a strong desire to create objects with my hands. That urge has never left me; it just evolved through different mediums and outlets."
