Biography:

Nina Koutibashvili is renowned for her groundbreaking jewellery designs and use of unusual techniques and materials. The self-titled jewellery brand is a relatively young company, started by Nina Koutibashvili six years ago after graduating from Central Saint Martins.

Nina's passion has always been for fashion but she found that the design and crafting of jewellery was much more suited to her dexterity and patience, However, there is a definitive fashion influence in her designs, clearly translating the fluidity and feel of fabric into her pieces, always mindful of the 'hard metal, soft touch' phrase that has been so influential to her design process.

Nina's approach to the craft of jewellery making has enabled her to produce intricate and signature pieces that have been designed with the utmost care and consideration. It is this attention to detail that is evident in every aspect of her work and one of the reasons behind instantaneous industry recognition.
