We had the good fortune of connecting with Orly Eisbart and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Orly, what inspires you?
I am inspired by mindfulness and do my best to surround myself and my family with positive role models to support us. My friends inspire me. My family inspires me. They say life is a practice. I try to lead my life with compassion, passion, and kindness inspired by those who lead with love.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Orly Marcel (OM) is a spiritually-inspired fine jewelry collection. Each piece is thoughtfully created with a distinct positive intention blending beautiful craftsmanship and purpose-driven meaning. We are most excited about actualizing a life-long’s dream of creating a business founded both in years of study and practice in Art Design and Eastern philosophical traditions. If there is one thing we would like the world to know about Orly Marcel – it would be that our primary business objective is truly creating objects of inspiration empowering the wearer. There are many beautiful fine jewelry lines in the market. OM Jewelry differentiates by acting as a daily affirmation/reminder for our customers.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
A perfect day would first begin with a Mediation at home alone while the house was still quiet. Then I would take my friend to Aviano for the best coffee in town before we head out to a Yoga class with one of my favorite teachers such as Patrick Harrington from Kindness Yoga. After Yoga we would go to lunch at True food for some healthy salad and juice. On the way home, Since it’s midday by now – I would go on a nice long hike with my friend near Denver such as Elk Meadow or Staunton Park. Closing out the day – We would go to dinner at Sushi Den and then head out to Red Rocks for a concert with one my favorite musicians (Sting) or (Amos Lee!) to end the evening. Best day ever.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Without question, I want (and need) to give a shoutout to my amazing brother Hanan. Hanan continued my father’s jewelry business and tradition after my father passed. He has been both a mentor and inspiration for me for years including when I launched Orly Marcel (OM). Without Hanan, I simply would not have been able to start OM – let alone launch it so easily. His coaching provided me with the proper foundation for launch and his support has been immeasurable in growing OM. I also need to thank my amazing husband and children. My husband Yosh has been supportive of me and OM from the beginning and continues to be. He is an Entrepreneur himself and inspires me every day to work hard, have grit and believe in myself and my vision. And finally my amazing community of girlfriends who are always there for me, support me and believe in me thank you from the bottom of my heart.
