In Greek, Ninaki means something small or precious. It is fitting that Ninaki Priddy would be destined to design jewelry.
Jewelry design was not the original plan, she started out as a biology major (many great designers start off in science). This proved to be the main inspiration for her first collection.
An LA based jewelry designer of Mexican-American heritage, Ninaki is also a sculptor and architect. Her organic forms are captured from still frames of movements, put together to create fluidity in form. The bold collection morphs into continuous whimsical shapes with touches of natural elements.
Recently, she won the accessory design competition for the GenArt Styles International Design Competition. We think this is a first of many to come.
This year, Ninaki plans to expand her line to include necklaces, earrings, ear-cuffs and hair-pins. Yes, custom ear-cuffs, her unique take on modern ornament.
New jewelry design for a new generation of women. NATALIA
