Welcome to Nangijala Jewelry [Nahn-ghee-yahlah]

I have been a goldsmith now for over 20 years. I was born and raised in Germany where I also received my training. In 2002 I became adventurous and moved to the United States, where I now live with my husband and my animals. I always wanted to be a goldsmith and at age 16 I had this wonderful internship opportunity with a renowned goldsmith in Starnberg (Munich area). That sealed the deal for me and after finishing school I started on my journey to learn the craft. I love coming up with fun designs and I always try to create something that people can enjoy for a long time. My goal is to provide you with 100% handmade, high quality yet affordable pieces of jewelry.
I love what I do and I always say I am in the business of making people happy :-)

I use only recycled metals that I purchase from Hoover & Strong. I added an excerpt from their website so that you can read what they are about.

Recycled and Beautiful

Hoover & Strong, a truly earth-minded refiner and manufacturer, has provided socially and environmentally-responsible products and services for over 95 years. It is our moral obligation to continually respect basic human rights around the world and to protect the environment by conserving energy and recycling.

We want you to know that all precious metals at Hoover & Strong are recycled from the Earth’s existing metal supply, which means we DO NOT BUY metals from mining companies. We don’t believe in it and, as a refiner, we just don’t have to. Over half our metal supply comes entirely from scrap metal purchased from jewelers. The remainder of our supply comes from other refineries that also recycle scrap metal. We feel GREAT about that and you can too!

HARMONY Metals™

All precious metals at Hoover & Strong including gold, platinum and palladium are 100% recycled.

When it is necessary to obtain metals from other sources, we buy metal from other earth-friendly refineries that, like us, only use recycled metal. We require any secondary refinery to provide in writing, full disclosure of their metal sources. A small percentage of Hoover & Strong chains and clasps are not created in-house. Those finished items, supplied by outside vendors, are not guaranteed 100% recycled.

Lately I also have been very interested in the healing properties of gemstones and I love to integrate that knowledge into my pieces with colored stones.

I also have a wedding shop here on Etsy
