Choosing artisan means supporting a form of economic development that has deep meaning, one that originates from and is rooted in the uniqueness of people and place.

By taking the time to have an honest conversation with ourselves about what we love to wear every day, we learn to appreciate the benefit of having one item instead of ten.

We feel honoured to work with brands that are committed to sustainable and ethical practices, and whose products are handmade and carry a real identity. Latin American designers don’t simply want to sell, they aspire to have a lasting and positive impact on their communities

Nak Armstrong

Introduction

Nak Armstrong is a CFDA-Award-Winning fine jewelry designer recognized for his innovative departures from standard metalworking techniques. His experimental aesthetic creates unique pieces that are timeless yet modern. He is recognized for his award-winning work that continues to push the boundaries of design.

Armstrong's background in architecture and fashion are evident in the engineering of his designs, as he developed a proprietary technique to suspend stones in metal. This unique metalsmithing approach replaces the traditional bezel setting in order to create the illusion of weightlessness. His labor-intensive construction process allows for highly textural and layered designs that have become synonymous with the Nak Armstrong brand.

Uniquely Made

Based in Austin, TX, Armstrong’s pieces are each handcrafted and uniquely set into recycled metals that buckle and fold around large geometric baguettes. Each collection features bold, saturated colors that are accented with subtle neutrals. The Nak Armstrong woman exudes strength and unique precision in the way she approaches both style and life.
