24 Days of Emerging Designers: Ayaka Nishi
New York-based jewelry design Ayaka Nishi is always adding new treasures to her collection. Taking elements in nature and making them her own, you'll see familiar objects paired with beautiful textures on everything from the sophisticated and simple to the complex and ornate. Spiders, bones, cells, fish scales and honeycombs are just some of her subjects that undergo a hand crafted transformation in her New York-based studio. Her new pieces include a range of rings: a fresh agate with a diamond rooted at the top, a fossil of the extinct ammonite marine invertebrate and a striking spider available in gold or silver that comes in a natural pearl or green diamond. She's also hitting on trends with the thin grain rings that are perfect for stacking. For more of an impact, there's the bone and spider web collections that are made up of more dramatic pieces for the body. Learn more at Ayaka Nishi. Emerging Designer or have a resource to share?
