Cindy Wimmer of Sweet Bead Studio blew us away with the innovative ways she uses Nina Designs bronze charms and findings. Need more reasons to love jewelry designing? Here are some of Cindy’s favorite parts of the design process:

“A jewelry project can be simple or very detailed, you decide. No matter what, when you’re finished you’ll have a little piece of art that you can actually wear! The possibilities are endless… there so many styles and materials to try. I love learning new techniques.”

We couldn’t agree more! Check out Cindy’s bright and cheery blog. Sweet Beads Studio is chock-full of beautiful photos and information.


Cindy Gimbrone of Lampwork Diva used Nina Designs bronze findings to create a simple, elegant earring design. Sometimes less really is more!  Cindy draws inspiration from organic everyday shapes: “In the drive to express ideas through my glass, I wanted to express the never-ending cycle of life.”

Stop by Lampwork Diva’s shop to explore all of Cindy’s beautiful designs.

Kristina Johansson of Wild Roses and Blackberries is a cat loving jewelry designer with a unique edge to her original designs. We were really impressed with her crafty, non-traditional approach to designing with Nina Designs bronze components. Wild Roses and Blackberries is a great resource for tutorials, inspiration and relate able stories.

    Three of my favorites! Great designs. The pieces from Nina inspire so much that it is not necessary to go over the top. Let their beauty speak. I am especially smitten with the infinity charm and I love the finish that is gold but not vermeil (can’t recall the name). It has such a silky feel and is so lush. Enjoy the day. Erin
