notl - Niagara-on-the-Lake - wine jewelry
As a counter trend to globalization – where everything begins to look the same the world over – comes the need to make things local. The desire to know where things come from foretells a strong movement towards locally produced goods and products.
For these reasons we carve inspiration close to home – embracing all that the Niagara wine region has to offer. The local spirited energy is influencing the designs.
notl wine jewelry was born out of a sense of identity and passion. Rural influences are bringing designs to live. Like fine wine vintages, notl wine jewelry designs are only available in limited quantities and some strictly one-of-a-kind. These pieces of wearable wine jewelry reflect some of the region's wines. Merlot-coloured crystals cascade like red wine drops from the wearer’s neck, and other designs with varietal names; Riesling, Chardonnay, Rosé and Ice Wine, illustrate the influence of the region's wine culture.
Thuy – the designer, has created limited edition private label jewelry since 1992. Her designs have been available in select boutiques and speciality stores across Canada.
