Hello friends! My name is Natalie.
It is a pleasure to meet you and I’m truly grateful that our paths have crossed!
I am the founder and jewerly designer for Powerful Parallel. Everything I create is intentionally made with love, for you!
I am born and raised in Ohio, living in Tremont, with my boyfriend and pup. I work as a HR Consultant at People Architects and coach indoor cycling at Cycle Fly. Brunch is my favorite meal. Nothing beats a baseball game with a dog and a beer. I enjoy meeting new people and love creating community and connection.
How Powerful Parallel was born:
My interest in jewelry and design started in 2005 while working part time at a local bead store in Oberlin, OH. What started out as a hobby for myself, quickly turned into a love language for me. I began gifting all the ladies in my life handcrafted jewels for every occasion. I even dabbled in custom requests for proms and weddings.
In 2020, during the horror of the pandemic, I was fortunate to find something special - I found time. Time to think, time to feel, and time to create. I had forgotten how rewarding it was to create, to play and follow my curiosity wherever it takes me - spoiler alert - it always takes me higher.
Here I am now. Turning my hobby into a business that is built on bringing balance and curiosity to people like you. I hope you like what you see because I know it will look stunning on you!
There is balance in every piece designed. While much of my work is symmetric and by nature offers a clear parallel, an equal portion of my work is asymmetric. Asymmetry is so attractive to me. I find myself drawn to the difference - it piques interest. There is a beautiful harmony it provides.
One of my biggest values is freedom. Freedom to choose your response. Freedom to choose your own journey. With that in mind, I started designing trifectas - a set of three mix and match asymmetrical earrings. Trifecta’s are created with the intent of you deciding which two you want to sport - allowing for three different pairs of earrings in one set.
I am inspired by the natural beauty of the places and moments I’ve experienced - landscapes, sunsets, hugs, happiness, courage, the world and the people in it. My hope is that my work evokes something for you, it challenges you to embrace your uniqueness, lean into your strength and own your freedom to choose your journey.
