Natalie Hightower graduated with a fashion degree from Texas Tech University. She worked in an unrelated sector until her passion for jewelry design surfaced in 2011. She is a Native Houstonian who was inspired to create beautiful, nature-inspired works from gems and earth-based materials that drew from her mother and her shared connection with nature and wellness.
The Hightower Collection (THC) was created in loving memory of her mother, Mary Ellen Hightower, whose lightness and spirit continue to influence her designs- both in jewelry materials and in butterfly artwork that represents the collection. Each jewel is handmade and is given a unique design that incorporates silver and gold paired with exotic stone beads from all over the world. Earrings, bracelets, necklaces, custom pieces, and more complete the look.
