Designs for the Creative Soul
Nyamani was created by self taught artisan Natisha Palmer.....I have always had a strong passion for design and fashion since a young child and carried this passion with me through high school, setting my sights on attending a fashion design college after graduation. I was accepted out of high school into FIDM (Fashion Institude of Design and Merchandising). Unfortunately, for financial reasons, I was not able to attend the school but this did not end my dreams of one day becoming a designer. After years of perfecting the age old craft of crochet, I fell in love with the art and decided to update it with a modern twist, out of this, Nyamani Designs was born. Nyamani Designs, named after my daughter Nya Imani, began solely as a hat and scarf line with a few crocheted jewelry pieces bringing to life my idea that any plain outfit can stand out with eye catching accessories.
After years of crocheting, I wanted to switch gears and focus on jewelry that was unique & out of the ordinary and something was wasn't often seen. After walking into a textile shop in downtown L.A. I began exploring all the materials housed there opening up a whole new world of inspiration and ideas. This is where my love for lace began, right there in that over crowed corner textile shop! $40 dollars later I was on the road headed to my design studio with a bag full of lace and a head full of designs geared up and ready to experiment. After countless hours, days and months of mistakes, hits, misses and successes, I opened up my Etsy shop to display my work.
Recently I stated playing around with the idea of incorporating Swarovski crystals into my pieces because these are one of my favorite materials to work with and here's why......I have a deep appreciation for the brilliant and dynamic, eye catching beauty of crystals. They inspire and motivate me to create. All I need to do on any given day is look at my crystals and their intense sparkle then a million designs jump into my head. Colors and the beauty of nature also inspire me. I have a saying which is this: "colors and crystals make my world go round!" I love these elements, they bring beauty to my world and I've chosen to use them to bring beauty to the world of others in a small way through my pieces.
My mission through NyaMani Designs is to create intriguing fashion thru timeless designs that inspire others and make them feel beautiful & share a passion for design and handcrafted wearable art that fuse aesthetic innovation with a balance of artistry, form and function making every piece an object of desire designed to serve one’s unique personal style.
Inspirations: God, crystals, nature, colors, vintage, avant-garde and art deco fashion, music, art

Additional policies and FAQs
::: Please note lace can be fragile and at times imperfect because it is created by hand. It is recommended that special care be taken when handling and storing your lace jewelry like that of precious jewels or delicate nylons. I suggest laying it flat when storing to avoid distortion and to ensure it keeps it's shape.
If you receive a damaged product, please let me know within 5 days of receiving the product to be eligible for a no-charge repair.
Repairs outside of 5 days from the receipt your order will be subject to the availability of materials/type of materials and degree of repair. Please email me with your problem and I will let you know whether there is a repair fee.
::: All items are made in a smoke-free and pet-free environment.
::: From time to time, you may notice that prices for certain products in the shop fluctuate. This is directly related to fluctuating costs of my supplies and materials. When I am able to find high-quality materials at a discount, I always pass on the savings through lower product prices. However, sometimes certain materials go out of circulation or cost more than before, leading to an increase in the final product price. Thank-you for your patience understanding!
