Since we are all physically disconnected right now as we STAY AT HOME, we’ve been reaching out virtually to some of our favorite designers to see how they are doing in these strange times.
One of our favorite artists is Johnny Ninos of Ninos Studio. A cult-fav amongst fine jewelry collectors, Johnny is known for being a “jeweler’s jeweler” – his impeccable craftsmanship, innovative techniques and striking organic designs inspire total awe amongst his fellow jewelers.
Recently relocated from Olivos, CA to the wilds of Vermont, Ninos Studio is up and running in a beautiful white-walled studio space amongst the trees. In his video below Johnny shows off this home studio he shares with his wife, the über-talented painter Ashleigh Ninos, and their young son who, like so many other children, is currently learning at home due to the coronavirus school shutdowns.
Have you ever wondered exactly what goes into the making of a piece of fine jewelry? Johnny is here to show you every step of the way, including a full casting demonstration! A must-watch for all of us jewelry nerds!
We’ve just added some gorgeous new pieces from Johnny to our website so that you can admire his work’s stunning originality from the comfort of your own home.
