It's perfect. I wear it all the time! It's my new favorite piece. She used a really high-quality chain, and the pendant falls in that magical place on me that makes looking at me in that vicinity even more exciting.

Nima & Velona - [Noun. Greek] Thread & Needle....& almost anything you can do with them!

Sustainability is the big word in Fashion nowadays and there are many ways to go about it!

Sourcing from Organic and biodegradable goods, to recycling toxic materials such as plastic, we appreciate all makers efforts to create new products with responsibility to our environment, recognizing that not one method is perfect.

At Nima & Velona LLC, our contribution to the ethical makers effort is to focus on repurposed or "UPcycled" goods. This method of sustainability eliminates much of the excess toxicity added to the environment from reprocessing materials, with the main by-product being that we create a unique, one-of-a-kind piece, EVERYTIME, in every category we offer.

Our Jewelry is sourced from unexpected everyday moments.

With our Apparel and Accessories, we offer you our favorite fixer uppers in the Lovingly Restored section and in our Ladies Garments we focus on classic, easy-to-wear silhouettes and offer customizing, so you will always feel comfy wearing our easy pieces! If you want to feel ESPECIALLY GOOD, take a gander at our Eco-Kink section for Accessories you can wear all day through long, long nights…

We are growing our Housewares offerings with the redesign of our home workshop in the coming months, stay tuned!
