Christina Brampti’s beautiful line of jewelry from Greece is now available in the USA! Talent is an amazing gift. It is one thing to make things, but something entirely different to stand out from the crowd. No matter what the trade is, a lot of people make a lot of things, but only a few are brilliant. They have a sense for balance, for harmony. Their creation makes sense in every way.
Christina Brampti is one of these talented people. And Nikaia is very excited to be the one introducing her work in a structured way in the USA.
Nikaia was introduced to the line by Cissy Andreu, owner of the dreamlike boutique Cissybelle in Guaynabo Puerto Rico. We have been working together for many years and she is the one who encouraged me to add this look to our portfolio.
The line is very large, using a vast variety of components and colors; passementerie, cotton, silk mix to perfection with aluminum, ceramic, rubber. The pieces are light, whimsical, and spontaneous. They are feminine and young. They are dressy with character; contemporary and dynamic; above all, they are extraordinarily easy to wear.
Nikaia will be unveiling new collections by all of our designers at two shows in February, the New York Gift Show and On The Edge, Designers NYC.

We’re happy to announce that NIKAIA will now be acting as an agent for CLIC by Suzanne in the United States. Designed with passion and handcrafted in her studio in the Netherlands, Suzanne’s work is distinguished by simplicity, strong geometry, and her invisible clasp. Come see her jewelry at NIKAIA’s booth at NY NOW, HANDMADE DESIGNER/MAKER section, North Pavilion – Booth 9158.
We’ll be introducing an exciting new line at the upcoming New York NOW show August 20-23, Thierry Joo Enamel from France. Handcrafted by French artisan Thierry Joo, this collection is built around simple shapes and vibrant colors.
Thierry is almost as much a chemist as he is a jewelry designer. The pigments are skillfully combined to achieve the exact shade desired. The epoxy is then brushed inside each individual receptacle and the necklaces become alive one color at a time, in a happy, whimsical fashion. Come see this great artisan’s work at NIKAIA’s booth at NY NOW, HANDMADE DESIGNER/MAKER section, North Pavilion – Booth 9158.
Come see a great new line we’ll be featuring at our trade shows in NYC this August. Working out of his Paris atelier, Laurent Guillot has a very strong background in the European luxury market, having taken part in the creation of jewelry collections for Yves St Laurent, Chanel, Courrèges, Guy Laroche, Swarovki, and Baccarat. His current focus is on bringing transparent lucite alive with hand-carved necklaces, rings, and bracelets that explores minimalism through dimension, scale, and volume.
NIKAIA is very pleased to announce that we will be showing Antares Venezia, an Italian line featuring Murano glass, in our upcoming NYC tradeshows at Accessories The Show and NY Now. Designed and hand-made in her atelier just outside Venice, artist Fulvia Notari draws her inspiration from art and nature to create gorgeous wearable sculptures of glass that she hand-blows herself, continuing a proud tradition of Venetian artisans spanning centuries of excellence.
New Coeur de Lion – Fall/Winter 2015 Video
Christmas in June for NIKAIA as the gorgeous new fall/winter collection from Coeur de Lion was just unwrapped today! Nathalie has her top ten bestseller predictions already earmarked, with a bottle of her favorite champagne, Nicolas Feuillat’s Brut, riding on the outcome. And, even Ellen, our hard-to-please fashion color maven, is picking her favorites.
Designer Carola Eckrodt has distilled the essence of her creativity into a very striking new collection. Few designers today have the moxie to pull off such an inspired blend of classic and contemporary, but Carola always strikes the right note, and this time she’s outdone herself.
Here’s a sampling, and you can view individual photos on our wholesale website if you’re a registered retailer. Place your orders early for the first delivery of the season in August. Or, if you’re coming to NYC for the summer trade shows, let Nathalie help build your season’s glass cases – this collection is a lock!
