Heather Nashelle Straw wears many hats every single day. Designer, Business Founder, President & CEO of Nashelle Jewelry, Philanthropist-but she will tell you that her most prized hat is that of Mom. Heather has four children and nothing is more important to her than making sure they are healthy, happy and thriving. Which at the most fundamental level; means making sure her children are always fed. This is her number one priority. That mother hat drives her to want to do more for the children, families and individuals that do not have enough food in her own community and beyond. Heather’s livelihood and sense of center has stemmed from feeding her two greatest passions in life: providing for her family and creating beautiful personalized jewelry. For Heather, nothing is more satisfying than being able to merge the two by extending the love that she pours into her family and her business, out into the world to those in need. Heather was touched and inspired by what she found. It was from this nurturing spirit, that she was inspired to do more and give back, and that is how Nashelle’s One Plate was born.

As Nashelle sought to find others who shared this passion to feed the hungry, we were able to team up with Feeding America and Neighbor Impact; two organizations dedicated to making a difference just like Heather, one plate at a time. Today, for every piece of handmade jewelry purchased, one plate of food is donated through these two hard-working organizations helping to feed the hungry- and not just in our back yard, but across the country. It is exciting and inspiring for us to share with you that to date there have been over 70,000 plates of food served across the nation made entirely possible through purchases of Nashelle jewelry!

A special note from our Founder, Head Designer, President, and most of all, a truly dedicated Mother to those in need, Heather Nashelle Straw:

While we all love a good piece of jewelry, a beautiful item that when we wear it, it brings us happiness; I want you each to know how much happiness you bring to me when I think of the contribution you are making in the lives of those in need with your purchase. It feeds my soul to know that people are not only enjoying my designs, but helping me contribute in a way that is near and dear to my heart. With that said, I wanted to thank you for supporting this cause and for allowing me to continue doing what I love!
