as part of my first assignment for refinery 29, i photographed the lovely nola singer of jewelry by nola. she greeted me so warmly with a beautiful spread of tea, rasberries and meringue. we bonded over puppy love as her sweet rescue pug francois lent his quizzical mug to a few frames. nola is a great champion of adopting shelter animals, as am i. she volunteers frequently for the baldwin park shelter. i knew immediately i wanted to be friends. <3
nola's designs are gorgeous reconstructions of carefully hunted antiques, making each piece truly unique. i especially love her headpieces. thank you so much for opening your beautiful home to me nola!
