A Charmed Life
We’ve all heard of wearing your heart on your sleeve, but now you can wear it around you neck. Make an appointment with Nicole Schumann Designs for a custom-made 14-karat-gold charm necklace, and express whatever that little heart desires.
With trinkets that range from skulls to lockets, and Buddha’s to geisha girls, these one-of-a-kind creations are as unique and personal and they are, well, charming.
The hand-made necklaces are distinct in that Schumann mixes materials from all over the world. She uses wood, metal, semi-precious stones and vintage charms all hung from a 14-karat-gold-filled necklace.
Started as a hobby, Schumann wore a necklace she designed when traveling Europe one summer and was constantly complimented. When she returned to New York, she made a few for a baby shower and since has not stopped filling requests.
Final Word: Nicole Schumann stills designs by appointment out of her apartment. She encourages anyone interested to call her at 917.796.7092. You’ll find she is just as personal and charming as the necklaces themselves.
