We really are so much more alike than we are different, aren't we?
Case in point – Sara, the designer of NODO. You see, Sara is an Italian gal who grew up just outside of Venice, and she moved to London almost two years ago with her boyfriend. Like I did when I started this blog, she decided to use the fuel from her experiences in a new city to start a creative project. And because her strength lies in the handmade, she started NODO – a line of knotted jewelry that she makes by hand. Sometimes she's knitting at home, or in an East London coffee shop, or on the sunny days, in a park.
I immediately connected with Sara's story. We'd both come to London for similar reasons (read: love), both struggled when we first arrived, then poured our nervous energy into creative projects. We even both read the same book in an effort to appreciate our experiences in London and find happiness almongst the stress. (Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project!)
You can see the work and care that goes into each NODO piece. And because of the time it takes to hand make every piece, Sara needs your help. When she originally contacted me I was going to consider featuring her pieces on my blog because why not? I love connected with lovely, likeminded folks, and I adore meeting with new designers and makers. But after I met Sara, and we connected over tea, I knew that I had to give her and her work the attention it deserves – she's the sweetest, guys, and so with that I ask you to consider supporting her Kickstarter which ends next week.
If you're looking for an incentive, consider this: Pledge roughly $12 or more and you'll get a hand knitted pot hanger. Isn't that great? I sure think so.
