Inside Scoop : Nathalie Girard

It's time again for the Inside Scoop! Get to know Nathalie Girard of NG Originals a little better by reading her responses to my unexpected, but fun, questions.

~some photos Nathalie wanted to share~
1) The castle is the Chateau Frontenac, in Old Quebec (Quebec City)… I spent a good part of my life near the castle as it is surrounded by beautiful parks and I was born and raised in that town. --2) A picture of my own home made fruit ketchup, made with my own organic tomatoes (I have a garden and I also grow some fruits). -- 3) A shot I took of the Rocky Mountains nearby… a great source of inspiration to me. -- 4) My two Yorkies playing in the snow -- 5) A picture of my favourite breakfast, with some of my own organic tiny strawberries from my garden. I love to garden, even if the season is quite short up here most years.

Tagline: Soulful Metal Artisan Jewelry That Expresses Your Individuality!
My signature color(s): When I make jewelry: Aqua, blue, green -- Colors that I wear: Pink, Purple, Aqua blue 
3 things in my handbag right now: RX Sunglasses, RX glasses, Wallet
The superpower I would love to have: I'd love to have a Bionic body. I'd be able to work much faster and create all those millions of ideas roaming around in my head! I'd also be able to run errands quicker if I had bionic legs, so that would give me more free time to cuddle my two little dogs :o)  
I get inspired by: The Ocean & The Mountains 
What I’m reading: Currently, about 30-odd books all going at once, anything from health, to business, to writing and metalwork techniques.  
If you could live anywhere you wanted (money's no object), where would it be? Hawaii
Where do you see yourself/business in 5 years? I see myself being able to sustain myself & my family comfortably, working full-time at creating what I love.
Favorite Reality TV Show: It's a French Canadian show: Occupation Double 
If you were forced to only have 1 make-up item, what would it be and why? Moisturizer with SPF15 incorporated in it. 

Why? All the make up in the world won't look good if the skin underneath is not well hydrated and pampered… so I'm going for the natural well-hydrated skin. The sun from Hawaii (my dream spot) will give me the "glow" and colour.
What's your favorite item you've ever made? My Reef Necklace here: http://tinyurl.com/ReefNecklace

I made the pendant from scratch using Fine Silver Metal Clay (PMC3), and I also did the glass enamel on top, as well as the bar & round/oval links by fusing and forging metal. It's an ocean inspired piece that means a lot to me :o)
 
Thanks Nathalie! 
I feel like we know you just a little better now! :)
