Lovely Finds: Jewelry from Nixin


is jewelry

inspired by

the rich colors


delicate beauty

of natural gem stones.

A part of me wants to keep this source of naturally

heavenly bling all to myself…but you…well, YOU are too lovely.

From Collection XIV, “Merron”: pyrite druzies

set into sterling silver bezels brushed for softness.

These Nixin lovelies

knocked me out.

Contemporary minimalism

and intricate sophistication

characterize the designs of

designer Nicki.

Can we talk accessorizing for a moment?

No worries, next post it’s back to quantum physics!

What could be more naturally lovely

than precious and semi-precious stones

collected from the heart of a beautiful planet

and incorporated into artful pieces to wear?

Diamond seed rings – gently hammered matte bands

L.A. based designer Nicki Gluckman

created two collections:



“Collection XIV.”

Many of the pieces are one-of-a-kind.

Is it just me, or is the mass of hammered rings above

not mesmerizing and working out something very

spiritual in the soul?

While browsing Nixin’s collections,

my thoughts keep turning toward

the magnificence of the earth

and the idea that the simplicity

of a delicate band of metal,

Coco Blush

the sparkle of a smoky quartz,

volcanoes – Chilean/Argentinian border

“Heavenly” necklace

or even the fiery blaze of opal

Gotland Sweden

Belladonna in blush – rose-cut sapphires

wields a power

to re-orient our attention

to so much overlooked beauty

all around us.

I need such reminders…do you?

From the thirsty corners of the globe…

Reflections – in grey starlight

Greenland Coast

to icy ones,

Ruby diamond coins

there is evidence everywhere

from a distance

and up close





Malaspina Glacier – Alaska

Inversion studs

It’s a simple thing, yes.

But when we view

gemstones with new eyes…

Great Sandy Desert – Australia

their earthly splendor

shines brighter.

You will LOVE visiting


whether your bling cupboard

is overflowing with sparkle

or nonexistent.

    Only you can put together such a wonderful and meaningful post!

    Stunning jewelry! A stack of the diamond seed rings is so me!

    Gotland is very special to me. That is were I spent 19 long and magical summers! All my great childhood memories are from that old Swedish viking island. Would love to take you there one day. Tons of heartshaped rocks on the beaches!

    Happy weekend to you. I am sorry I was such a bad blog friend this week. But a lot of the big stuff is now behind me and I am coming up for fresh air!

    Stunning pieces. While at market this past spring we fell in love with a pair of quartz earrings (and didn't buy them). Yes we are kicking ourselves…especially after viewing these beautiful jewels!

    Love this post, very interesting how you put this post together.

    Have a rested weekend!
