Browsing Noelle’s website and jewelry descriptions feels a bit like chatting with her over coffee. All of her pieces were inspired by some event in her life, and all of them are meant to serve a purpose. Not just to accessorize, but to complement the person who wears them, to show a little bit about their personality through the medium of precious metals.
Noelle went to school for jewelry and furniture design and even won awards for some of her pieces. The timelessness of her jewelry allows those pieces to remain in her ever expanding collection rather than having trendy pieces that rotate with the styles of the season.
Each Noelle Munoz piece is made by hand so will slightly differ from the pictures, but each one is guaranteed the highest quality jewelry. The kind of jewelry you could give to someone who you think is just as timeless on Valentine's Day.
The 9×19mm Parabellum was designed by Georg Luger in 1902. Since then it's become one of the most widely used bullets, adopted by most American police forces.
The name Parabellum comes from the latin: Si vis pacem, para bellum ("If you seek peace, prepare for war")
The designer Jennifer Pettyjohn wasn't seeking peace or war when she created Bluegrass Brass' bullet jewelry. She just wanted a new accessory that felt true to her Kentucky roots, thus the 9mm earrings, necklace and ring were born.
The bullet points:
-all primers and powders are removed, so jewelry is safe to wear.
-high quality materials like .925 sterling silver and Swarovski crystals are used in jewelry.
-all pieces are handmade so can slightly differ.
-Pieces are rustic enough for everyday wear,
-but made of quality materials to go with more refined wear.
