Featured Exhibitor: My Naptime Jewelry


 My Naptime Jewelry is a handcrafted collection of Essential Oil Diffuser Jewelry made with genuine volcanic lava stones created by Michelle Stangl. Her jewelry is designed to look (and smell!) great wherever you go; just one drop of essential oil can provide aromatherapy for weeks. What once started out as a form of self therapy, has now grown into a passion and a mission of hers. Michelle aspires that women and men around the globe will discover the powerful benefits of aromatherapy and be able to enjoy it through the use of My Naptime Jewelry's Essential Oil Diffusing Jewelry.
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Michelle Stangl and I am the owner and designer of my naptime Jewelry. I design essentials oil diffuser jewelry using volcanic lava stones. You just put one drop of your favorite essential oil on our volcanic lava stones; the oil is soaked into the stone, your body heat warms the oil, leaving your favorite aroma to be released throughout the day.

What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on?
Lately I have been working on our new collection. It's a compilation of necklaces featuring hand cut lava stone pendants electroplated in silver gold and Rose gold. It's really cool because each lava stone is hand cut, and exclusive to my naptime Jewelry, so we know that no one else has the same lava stones that we do. This also means that you get a one-of-a-kind piece every time.

How did you get started in your business?
I started my naptime Jewelry during my son’s naptime in 2015 when he was just a baby. I felt like I needed a creative outlet that we would help me to relax during that quite time. I had made jewelry in high school to help relieve migraines, so I dug out my old tools and started creating things!

Why did you start working in this craft?
Started making jewelry in high school when I noticed that my chronic migraines disappeared during an art class while making jewelry! So, I made A LOT of jewelry in High School. It was the only thing that helped.
Where did your business name come from? 
I started making jewelry only during my kids nap time. When people would ask me what my jewelry business name was, I would just say “I don’t know it’s just my nap time jewelry?”

What do you think sets your designs apart from others?
Most of our community is not familiar with essential oil defusing Jewelry, they're familiar with the two apart from each other, but not together. It's a new product for them that they didn't know they needed but once they have it they can't live without it!

What has been your favorite moment since creating your business?
My favorite moments are those times when I get an email or message from someone who has bought my jewelry, used it and it has change their life. I get messages daily from cancer patients, Women diagnosed with anxiety or depression, ADHD, even blind and deaf clients; that have said their new jewelry has helped them in so many ways. It's really unbelievable some of the stories they share with me! And I never thought that by doing something I love so much, I could be changing peoples lives.
