Ten years ago if you asked me what my dream job was I would have replied, “to have my own jewelry business”. It has taken many hours working away in the jewelry studio and some sacrifices to get here but I’m finally getting to live my dream and do what I love every day. I’ve come to adopt the simple motto, “Live what you love. Wear what you love.”, life is too short not to enjoy every minute.
I was blessed to grow up in an artistic household, ever exposed to art, architecture, history and culture. Sophomore year of high school I stumbled upon the jewelry making elective and Mrs. Morgan, a very brave teacher that was crazy enough to teach a classroom full of teenagers how to use a jeweler’s saw and a torch-- after just one class I was hooked.
At Virginia Commonwealth University I spent four years focusing on furniture and jewelry design and left with my BFA, moving on to a stint in the corporate world. The time I spent away from creating was invaluable, I was able to learn not only about business but also myself and what I really wanted for my career and my life. In the end I learned that designing and creating is a part of me that I desperately missed while I was away from it- a part of me I don’t want to live without.
When I’m creating a piece I want it to reflect a certain personality, Noelle Munoz Jewelry is made for the bold, confident and free-spirited. Along with that personality, I strive for originality, ease of wear and quality as well as a modern yet classic design esthetic-- for jewelry that never goes out of style.
I design and hand make all of my work in my Charlotte, NC studio. I am so grateful that thanks to my supportive husband I can say, I love what I do. Every day I feel honored that people choose to give my jewelry to their loved ones.
