Nona’s Artist Statement
"I feel that everyone needs Art in his/her life. Without creativity, our existence would be dull, boring, and sterile. Art is everywhere we look and is most beautifully demonstrated by our Maker. I often represent nature and the human form in my artwork because God’s designs are perfect.
Jewelry is wearable sculpture. When I share my ideas in my custom, one-of-a-kind jewelry designs, I am striving to express some of the splendor of our universe. I want to share beauty and harmony with others in my jewelry creations. I hope you will feel happiness, love, and security as you view and wear Nona Custom Jewelry."
