From the Heart

January 28, 2015

Life's unexpected twists and turns can shake up our world.

When I suffered a heart attack last summer, everything changed for me. I learned how little I knew about my own heart health and how little anyone really knows about women’s heart disease and heart attacks.

I’ve been in a physical rehab program that serves two purposes: one to improve and maintain good heart functions and to me – the patient - the confidence that I can have a good quality of life after a heart attack. This program has been essential to my recovery.

I am now committed to spreading the word about the unique nature of women’s heart health. I’ll include vital heart health information for women in every jewelry shipment. Plus I’ve launched the "From the Heart Collection by Nina Forrest," unique pieces featuring red stones that rest near the heart or near your pulse points as a reminder to be good to your heart.

To be the first to find out about these exclusive heart health pieces, please join my email list.

Even though heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women,
women often chalk up the symptoms to less life-threatening
conditions like acid reflux, the flu or normal aging.

Check out the "From the Heart" collection.

If you make your purchase this week, you'll be ready for National Wear Red Day for women’s heart health awareness.

National Wear Red Day is held on the first Friday every February to raise awareness about heart disease being the No. 1 killer of women.

I hope you’ll help me spread the word about the importance of paying attention to our heart health.

What is YOUR heart story?

One of the many art forms I love is ceramics. The other day I was flipping through an art book on my shelf and I couldn't take my eyes off of this photo. Later in the day, I realized why. Their swirly pattern looked almost exactly like the posts on these brass and Swarovski crystal earrings I recently made.

I love neutrals, especially animal prints. But neutral colors can be - well - a little boring! And what better way to to add that color than with a fabulous necklace with a red coral accent bead.

Anyone who sees me on a regular basis, knows that the white tee is one of my wardrobe staples. I love them because they come in so many shapes and styles, from close fitting to oversized, round neck, vneck, scooped neck - there's a flattering look for everyone.
