WJA Colorado invites you to the next Meet the Designer series with Nina Nguyen. Join us to meet this socially conscious designer and entrepreneur to learn more about her passion for creating sustainable jewelry.
Seating is limited. RSVP required.
Free for all current WJA members, $20 to non-members.
Light refreshments and wine included.
Nina started her jewelry business upon returning from ten weeks of backpacking throughout India. Mesmerized by the stones and gold, she was reminded of her happy childhood growong up amongst a family of jewelers and goldsmiths in the central highlands of Vietnam. She decided to forgo a promising career in finance and instead pursue her dream of designing her own jewelry.
A socially conscious entrepreneur and an advocate for fair labor practice, Nina takes great pride in knowing her jewelry is produced using sustainable and earth conscious materials. Nina's designs embrace organic gemstones, hand-crafted and recycled metals, and time-honored jewelry-making processes that are married to designs as individual and unique as the customers who treasure her collections.
"I think all products should be made in a manner that benefits everyone involved. I would love for my jewelry to bring this message: That people should always be concerned with where the things they purchase come from, who made them, where the materials came from, how long they last, and what will become of it when it's life is over."
Nina's line is currently represented in 120 independent high-end jewelry stores nationwide.
