Nicki's Profile

About

COMPANY HISTORY:

NIXIN was established in June of 2007. Although that month revealed the sudden emergence of a company called “NIXIN,” NIXIN had actually been a long time in the making. For years, NIXIN Owner and Designer, Nicki Gluckman, had created hand-made wire wrapped jewelry with gemstones, simply as a pastime. Friends and family had always appreciated her creations and encouraged her to make a career of her hobby. June of ’07 simply marked the turning of this dream into a reality.

Upon launch, NIXIN consisted of one collection, the "Philosophy Collection." These pieces were wire wrapped with Sterling Silver, 14k Gold Fill, or 14k Gold and adorned with precious or semi-precious gemstones.

COMPANY HISTORY:

NIXIN was established in June of 2007. Although that month revealed the sudden emergence of a company called “NIXIN,” NIXIN had actually been a long time in the making. For years, NIXIN Owner and Designer, Nicki Gluckman, had created hand-made wire wrapped jewelry with gemstones, simply as a pastime. Friends and family had always appreciated her creations and encouraged her to make a career of her hobby. June of ’07 simply marked the turning of this dream into a reality.

Upon launch, NIXIN consisted of one collection, the "Philosophy Collection." These pieces were wire wrapped with Sterling Silver, 14k Gold Fill, or 14k Gold and adorned with precious or semi-precious gemstones.

Approximately one year after the founding of the Company, Nicki had a desire to expand NIXIN’s Portfolio and create a high end collection of cast pieces with set stones…so she did. In June of 2008, she began designing “Collection XIV.” Collection XIV contains her jewelry dreams, cast in precious metals with sparkling gemstones set within. This collection contains a vast range of designs and price points as well as some OOAK (one of a kind) pieces.

Most recently, Nicki has added "NIXIN Vintage" to the NIXIN Family of Collections. This seemed a natural progression, considering the influence that vintage works have had on many of her designs, combined with the attraction of vintage essence in the Etsy Marketplace. The best part of NIXIN Vintage is that Nicki sells these amazing pieces below wholesale.

What’s in STORE for NIXIN?

NIXIN can currently be found in at New Stone Age (recently ranked one of LA’s top 50 Boutiques by Lucky Magazine.)* NIXIN will be actively seeking placement for Collection XIV in the near future, so please let me know if you have a great store or contact you think is a fit!

Some of the pieces from the Philosophy Collection can be viewed and purchased from www.NIXIN.etsy.com. Feel free to ask if you've seen a piece on the nixinstyle site and you'd like to purchase it through etsy...I'd be happy to oblige.

DESIGNER PROFILE:

Nicki Gluckman

As a young child, Nicki used to visit her Grandmother’s New York retail store, “Mimi & Natalie.” It was there that she was first exposed to the lure of women’s accessories. Mimi & Natalie carried a wide variety of fine goods; Ray Ban Sunglasses, handbags by Judith Leiber, Coach, Carlos Falchi, Rodo and Sharif, jewelry, belts, wallets, scarves, and more. For hours, Nicki would lose herself in the store’s basement full of inventory, gathering the beads, crystals, and sequins that had collected on the floor, beaming with joy over the bag of sparkle she would be taking home with her from which she would make her own creations.

Nicki’s other fond memories of her store visits also include working the bow-machine to produce bows for gift wrap and climbing into the store windows to help decorate and merchandise the displays. Although not apparent at the time, Nicki’s fascination with beads and gems, packaging and merchandising would eventually merge to become tangible products in her future company, NIXIN.

Nearly 25 years later, Nicki would launch the NIXIN Line of Jewelry. She often had trouble finding jewelry she wanted to wear, so she started to make it herself. She creates what she likes, and hopes that if she likes it, others will too.

However, NIXIN is about more than just the jewelry; it’s about the experience you have when you wear it. Sometimes the right accessories make you feel more confident and sophisticated. The perfect sparkle can make you feel beautiful. NIXIN offers a wide variety of jewelry options so that you can select the piece that best suits your style or mood. Treat yourself to something beautiful.

Nicki currently lives in Los Angeles, California with her Husband, Steve, and her Dog, Bailey.
