Announcement   To my dear Customers-

Thank you so much for all the words of kindness and support as we welcomed our new baby girl to the family - you've been amazing. Our little girl has been a trooper and even comes to work with me now. Although I do ask for your patience with the full 4-6 week fabrication window (in case I were to need it), we've been turning most pieces around at a much faster rate. My goal is always to create the prettiest sparkle I can, as quickly as is possible, so you can enjoy.


Contemporary Fine Jewelry...with a personal touch.

Treat yourself to something special.

N I X I N

NIXIN Jewelry is an ever evolving company of my dreams. Inspired by the beauty I find around me, each design is personal and representative of my life's findings and experiences. My ideas are influenced by an appetite for contemporary minimalism, organic forms, and an antique aesthetic. Many of my pieces display a fusion of these different elements, merged as one. Together, these pieces form COLLECTION XIV.

Some NIXIN pieces can be duplicated; others are one of a kind. Please don't hesitate to inquire if you're looking for something special. I have many available pieces not yet posted, and I also collaborate on custom requests.

If you have any questions, please ask. Come take a look • I hope you enjoy!

I bought these to wear most all the time however the came out and were lost on day two. My thought is that they are too thin and fragile to be sleeper earrings and can be easily unhooked. They were very cute but delicate.

About

Contemporary Fine Jewelry...with a personal touch.

I’ve been creating for as long as I can remember. As a young girl, I used to hand paint women’s sweat suits that my beloved grandmother would sell at “Mimi & Natalie,” her women’s accessories store in New York. My designs hung unabashedly next to the likes of Falchi, Coach, and Ferragamo. When I’d visit her store, I’d spend hours in the basement, collecting beads and sequins that had fallen off the inventory and onto the floor. They were my treasures. I couldn’t wait to return home to turn them into something magnificent.

This passion for creating evolved, as I discovered my first bead store. I bought indian seed beads and ceramic beads and started to experiment with different beading techniques. I spent many hours threading needles through tiny holes. It may sound like tiresome work, but I found it exhilarating. Words cannot describe how accomplished I felt when I finished a chandelier earring or created a new bracelet on my loom.

The next step for me was working with drilled gemstones; wire-wrapping them into the designs of my dreams. If I could imagine it, I could usually figure out how to make it. It was with this collection of wire wrap jewelry, the “Philosophy Collection,” that I officially launched N I X I N in 2007.

While I loved the process of wire wrapping, I longed to work in metals and set gemstones…so I took classes to learn the classic technique of lost wax. I loved dripping the wax into positive forms and then carving it away into the shapes of my ideas.

My favorite part of the creation process is searching for the perfect gemstones. They’re the heart of the piece, and I love to find unusual cuts, colors and patterns. I then design a piece that I think will best compliment the gemstones. I think of the stone as an artistic masterpiece that needs a fitting frame; one that will enhance the stone’s beauty, without detracting from it. I’ve always believed that the subtleties of a design are critical, so I embrace the special details. My designs exhibit combinations of modern minimalism, organic forms, and deco influence. This is a reflection of my personal style; a little bit old, a little bit new, and a little bit raw.

My hope is that each piece tells a story; it is your birthstone and celebrates who you are, it’s an engagement ring to mark your happily ever after, it has an emerald that reminds you of your mother’s favorite ring. Whatever the story may be, it’s yours. My favorite story piece is a ring that I once made for my grandmother. It’s engraved with a quote from a story she routinely told me. It says, “with all my love, in one fell swoop.” I wear it every day in her memory.

Today, I am fortunate to work with a team of incredible individuals that help make my dreams a reality.

Please take a look at my designs and see if any of them are meant for you. I do welcome custom requests to collaborate on the piece of your dreams. I’d love to help you find a piece that tells your story.

    In college, I studied Art History, Studio Art and Italian. By 2007, I’d launched NIXIN, with a wire-wrap collection. Later, I took classes to learn the technique of lost wax, to work in cast metals and gemstones. Passion unearthed.
