Coming out of Montreal, Quebec, NoÃ©miah is a jewelry line that uses feathers, chains, semi-precious stones and metal to create handmade statement pieces. Typically, 27-year-old designer NoÃ©mie of NoÃ©miah first chooses a feather and then draws inspiration from its color, length, texture and shape. From that, she will add on to the NoÃ©miah pieces, working with quality metal materials.
Anything from the NoÃ©miah collection will garner attention due to its size and vivid coloring.
Implications - Consumers are becoming increasingly more attracted to handmade products due to the environmental concerns associated with mass-produced items and for financial reasons. Companies can benefit from this by merging with small businesses or independent designers to harness the DIY sense.
