My Mom: Breast Cancer Survivor
When I was given a diagnose of stage 4 terminal breast cancer I looked to my Lord, my Family and My friends for support until the end. Over 15 years later, I am cancer free! Like a thief, the treatments took a toll on my body where I lost dexterity in both hands, and range of motion to reach behind my neck. I lost the ability to do dainty clasps. Now I’m proud to see the talent that the Lord gave my daughter to make simple elegant jewelry which functions so easily to help people like me! I’m living proof that the physical challenges we face are real, and facing those challenges with hope and faith helps us live well; but the losses along the way are just as real like making dainty necklace clasps impossible to do. Know that you are the hero who overcomes, the God who made you is so proud of you, and good things are planned for you and I believe that like me, you can wear a dainty necklace and do it yourself! Wear your story!
Actress, Venda D’Abato’s Story: Diabetic
Venda underwent heart surgery in 1997 in an attempt to correct a rare heart condition which she battled for years, and nearly took her life. Four years later in 2001 Venda was diagnosed with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes, a daily battle which she nearly lost before the production of SANITARIUM began when she had a diabetes induced attack while driving on the highway. This car accident resulted in massive head and throat trauma. At the time, no one was sure she would ever fully recover, and the Creator of SANITARIUM (Kerry Valderrama) went out of his way to make sure she could fulfill her role as Reflection while still in recovery. Having endured great physical challenges, it is a true testimony of determination and faith that she has continued to follow the path to her dream.
Venda’s necklace tells her story: The pink and black theme is the perfect combination for Venda, a true story of perseverance; a road not without trouble yet strung with hope and love being made elegant in God’s hands. Like all of Charise Noel’s necklaces, they are simply an overhand knot: tie on and pull off! It’s been my pleasure to tell Venda’s story… May God bless your journey my friend! - Charise Noel
Teresa lives with Arthritis
My Auntie, is the one who would take me out of school when I was in elementary school just to take me out for ice cream! Auntie is a second mom to me, making sure that I dressed modestly, was polite to others and that I was decent with boys. She would cook tacos for 30 or more people every Tuesday at her house and made sure that she gave everyone who came to her house a hug. I knew that she had Psoriasis really bad and eventually had rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in her hands, however I never knew the constant pain that she had in her hands and difficulty that she had doing clasps. She never changed her necklace, because the clasp was too small. Now with the Charise Noel necklace, she is able to wear a variety of different styles of necklaces that are beautiful and feminine and she can wear them and change them out as much as she would like. How awesome is that! Wear your story!
Cher: Restoration from brokenness
I asked Charise Noel to create a necklace that through pearls and gemstones would represent the key points of my healing journey to my beautiful messy story. I named my necklace Restoration as a reminder that God is with us in the darkest times, and He makes a way to bring light to the truth of who we are as His precious children whom He loves and defends. To bring healing to my brokenness. I wear my story, you can too!
The pearl necklace Covered by Grace by Charise Noel was my something borrowed on my wedding day. The pearls represent wisdom, beauty, and grace of generations of Godly love and suppose that is passed down to me by my mother. Wear your story.
Stephanie: Artist Singer
Wow! I love to sing melodies and to have a necklace with the name of Melody is so beautiful.

Hali: Just Because
I was amazed that it didn’t break when I pulled it…I really tried to break it! Instead it just came undone! I said No Way, if I can’t break it that’s amazing because I constantly break necklaces! With big dogs that jump on me, and a busy on the go lifestyle, I needed something pretty and simple, but most importantly Quick and easy for me to do running out the door. I love the Charise Noel necklace, it truly works the way she says and it is so fun! Wear your story.
Doris Ann: Parkinson
I took care of my grandma who had Parkinson and dementia at 89 years old. Every night we would read a devotional and pray together and she would close her eyes and pray for the day that she would be in heaven and when she would be healthy and whole again. This brought tears to my eyes, knowing that she knew that she wasn't well, that her body was failing her. Because of this, when she was able to tie on her necklace by herself, she smiled with joy, a beautiful confidence that shone from the inside. Wear your story!
Christen Joy mother of 4 Boys:
Ferociously busy with 4 boys under the age of 7 years old and a set of twins, as well as being a night shift nurse at Pomona Valley Hospital, jewelry was the last thing on my mind. I constantly said, "I don't wear jewelry, I don't have time!" Than I bought the Brazilian necklace by Charise Noel to raise money to provide clean water along the Amazon River. I thought the colors were cool and the design was so unique! Now I wear this necklace everyday because it's so Easy! Wear your story!
Trina: Beautiful Bride
When I met Charise at a fair and saw her beautiful necklace design, I knew that her necklace was the one would go perfect with my wedding dress! I took the necklace on our honeymoon and when I traveled I put the chain in the baggie and zip locked the ends out and it didn’t tangle even though I packed it with other jewelry! Wear your story.
I can't believe how perfect this classic necklace is with my bridesmaid dress and so versatile, I can't wait to wear it with my jeans and T-Shirts as well! Wear your story!

My husband Malcom and I first met Charise at the LA County Fair. When you buy one necklace, you are hooked because they are so pretty and easy. They are the BEST travel necklace I have ever had, it can change in so many ways to match ALL of the outfit that I have. All of her necklaces are a treasure to own and you will get so many compliments on them! It doesn't matter where we travel in the world, I take my Charise Noel necklaces with me. Here I am in the Antarctic with the Penguins. Wear your story.
Charise: Teacher 6th & 7th Grade Math and Science
I can look back and see how everything works together. These amazing young ladies were so encouraging to me as I developed the Charise Noel brand and jewelry line. What an exciting time! They would ask every day, Ms. Erickson are you wearing a pull and giggle necklace today? Can I pull it? Yes you can! They pulled for me … now I pull for them, their accomplishments in life and struggles. I cheer them on and am so grateful for the opportunity to have taught them. Now remember “that the real reason a clasp will come into the front of the necklace, is because your head is a pivot and it works like a pulley system and moves the clasp into the front of the necklace!”
Patti Daily Caruso: Valley Views Host
Patti Daily Caruso wanted me and my mom to come and share our story on her program Valley Views in the Cochino Valley. I was impacted by her caring, hospitality and willingness to help others. I’m going to quote what she would say on her phone voice mail box… "Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today's a gift and that's why we call it the present…live in the now moment!"
Final Note: Pattie Daly Caruso (1944-2017) Valley Views Host
Life is precious, embrace the moment. You don’t know when the line is drawn in the sand for you or a loved one. But one day we will all cross over, and when we do let’s be thankful for the way that we lived, trusting God that life is our friend and loving others through the mess of it.
