  • Can you make a connector out of your poppy charm by adding a jump ring at the bottom as well as the top? Also, can you make a three-way connector out of the same charm, only larger?



  • Could you please do other sizes of rings? I haven't ordered any because I know my customers will ask when they see such limited sizing (always 5-10, the more common are the ones) But the limited sizes have always prevented me from buying them, otherwise I would buy them all!



  • I would love to have the tree of life charm in a huge ornament size:)



  • The rest of the states!!! I get lots of requests for the states you don't have.

  • I would love to see "confidence" and "pride" in round word charm or rectangular word charm. it'll be a great addition to pieces for encouraging women.



  • Good Evening Nina Designs Team: I want to start off by saying how much I enjoy receiving my orders from you. One of my suggestions is to make charms and pendants with an open jump ring, as others have suggested. I also would like to see a few unique animals to your list, such as a badger and a meerkat. I am a Harry Potter fan and been attempting to make necklaces that represent the four houses. If you do make a badger, would you please make it slightly bigger? Products S6000, A702, and A1220 are slightly small as a focal point, but I have still used them. I appreciate you taking the time to read my suggestions. Thank you and please keep the fun, new, designs coming.



  • Would love a teapot charm! Also a teapot charm with space for a bead inside.



  • I'm looking for a sterling silver Wisconsin charm



  • State of Ohio, and a sun without a face, also a running shoe.

  • I have a customer request for the happy face charm as a link :) Thanks!



  • Sterling stud earring bezel cups and other settings 9mm-12mm inside diameters. I'm having trouble finding ones of good price and quality. I use these in most my designs. I've been using metal alloys but wanting to convert my whole line to Sterling silver.



  • Hi, I just wanted to say that I LOOOOVE Nina Designs. I am just so happy that you exist and even if I can't purchase much yet, I will...:), I just enjoy so much looking at your pieces and jewelry. Thank you so much for your work, creations, philosophy and for giving back!



  • I want a word charm for myself and others with cancer: FIGHT



  • More state charms! I'm always getting requests for different ones but have to turn them down. Utah, Tennessee, Maine, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho. Pretty much all of them! Sterling preferred. Also more antler stuff. Maybe an antler that connected at both ends.



  • I would love a gold plating option for my bronze work - pendants - to - chalices... could you ever offer this service or where do i go?? Moondancemetals



  • I have a customer request for a silver cursive festoon link that says "believe" similar to style VSA1305 Thanks for your consideration :)



  • I have a customer request for a solid 14k gold om charm in the style of the A646 charm.



  • I'd love to see you carry rayon tassels in white (pfd) so that we could dye our own colors. I plan to attach them to the four corners of hand-dyed scarves (hidden, removable for hand washing), earrings, necklaces, & add to miniature cross body "party pockets"- bags to hold a cell phone, credit card, driver's license, lip gloss, binaca, etc. Another thing I'm having a hell of a time sourcing is soft black leather tassels to create jewelry/tassels to attach to rather plain handbags. Any ideas? I've been following Nina for nearly 30 years now (I attended UC Berkeley), and I'm SO proud of her! Please let her know. Thank you.



  • I would like to see pendants and/or charms of sea life like seahorses, mermaids, starfish, octopus, etc. I would reaaly enjoy seeing the 3 monkeys with see no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil. Thanks for asking our input.



  • More state charms! I would love to see Utah, Idaho, Arizona, Nevada to name a few! I have customers who love them but the states are very limited. I would love to offer all 50 states to my customers.



  • how about some deerskin lace leather tassels.



  • I would love to see some silver medals and rosary parts... They are very expensive at Rio...



  • # or (hashtag) on a charm



  • You already have a paw charm but how about a wolf-paw charm with claw marks? That would be awesome :)



  • Dear Nina, I am just the opposite of a lot of the posters here---I would like to see more links and /or connections that are generic, well designed--but not theme specific. These could be used by more people for more designs. Make them graphic or flowing either way would work...they could be nouveau-ish or deco, modern or retro. Color and finish to work with the designs. Thank you.



  • Would love to see several related charms for sports like tennis and softball. Love, love your designs. They are beautiful.



  • 2 hands that hook together (holding hands) either for a neck chain (relationship, friendship ,engagement, wedding) or fashioned as a clasp.



  • Ohio please!



  • Your charms and pendants have very nice closed jump rings. But when they have to be attached the ring has to be cut and an open jump ring attached. This is especially the case with earrings. It's a shame to have to cut them and discard them. Make some of your pendants and earrings with open jump rings, please! Liz



  • Please add a text description and/or a picture of each item purchased to the email receipt and packing slips. Going back to your website to double check what I ordered is a not an efficient use of my time. Thanks!



  • Rose gold is so hot! I'd love to see anything and everything in rose gold fill, please. :)



  • image of a palm tree on a charm



  • Offer half strands or smaller quantity options when purchasing gemstone beads--I've often passed on a project because I would only need four beads from an $85.00 strand.



  • Nina, We would be most appreciative if you could make an Alabama pendant. We have tremendous Bama pride down here. We are know as the heart of Dixie and if you could place a heart right where Birmingham is located, that would be the best.



  • INDIANA state pendant, more cross charms, lockets that charms could go inside of, more sterling chain options.



  • I love the scarab pendant, and would be thrilled to see more Egyptian style pendants and charms! Also, I know you have some of these, but crescent moons and honeycombs are HUGE right now, so more of them would be awesome.



  • Airstream trailer and firefly



  • Need more science charms... I cannot find a klein bottle charm anywhere!



  • Please do some inspirational quote links also more in Gold bronze. Keep us great work!



  • bigger state charms!!!



  • I'd like to see "i love mom" "i love dad" or "i love you" on A737 size and shape charms.



  • Infinity ring!



  • Bird claw, in the style of the bear claw/bird skull



  • Ohio, baby feet, sports charms, dance charms



  • An angel or wings



  • Gold plated state charms. Texas in particular!!!! Pretty please!



  • I would love to see you create a Native American Dream Catcher Pendant, open webbing in the center to attach a bead, or charm and to hang feathers that you already have created around the edge! (I already have a customer that wants it!) ;D



  • Another suggestion for my Ireland-loving sister - Celtic symbol charms :)



  • Would love to see a gold plated bronze version of GA552 to save on cost. thx!



  • You have an amazing collection of beautiful charms! I'd love to see a martial arts one, especially a girl. My daughter is a black belt in tae kwon do and I can never find anything like that for a necklace/bracelet.



  • I'm always looking for a nice swimmer charm and gymnast charm, ladder charm



  • Several suggestions - like several others, more state charms would be awesome (Tennessee specifically), also more mythical creatures (unicorns, fairies, & mermaids), and like the comment below me, I'd love to see more chakra symbols as well. :) Thanks for all of the beautiful charms! Best selection & quality I've ever seen!



  • I am looking for Chakra Symbol Pendants and Charms similar to the lotus flower with om in center that you have. Do you have that or will you soon offer it? thank You!



  • I have someone asking for a script word charm similar to the new one that says "love" but this one would say "breathe". Thanks!



  • looking for a tiny fortune cookie charm



  • Octopus charms would be fantastic. Hedgehogs would also be good. Xxx



  • Hi - I'd like to see a silver bead cap/cone in the shape of a lily. Something that I could put a single round pearl in or dangle a few freshwater rice pearls. maybe 20 mm long or so? That would make a great pendant or pair of earrings! Also a cone/cap shaped like a lily of the valley with slightly curled ends would be great!



  • puffins and sea otters would be great. Travelers to Alaska would love earrings of those.



  • More State Charms!! Specifically Oregon. I get asked for them all the time. A United States cut out charm too.



  • I know that you are already doing this on some of your pieces, but could you put the 925 and ND stamp on the side of the charms and pendants? The majority of people want the charms and pendants facing in opposite directions-hummingbirds, doves, wings. I can't put them like that because one of the earrings would have the stamp facing out. Thanks!!



  • Different designs of sterling silver angel charms would be great!



  • More sterling silver round cut out pendants please. Like the round star cut out pendant. Different designs and smaller sizes would be great!



  • Hi, When are you going to sell the Egyptian ankh? or eye of Horus, cartouches?????? PLEASE :)



  • Recovery, unity, serenity charms or tags, camel charms, or the Alcoholics Anonymous symbol (an equilateral triangle inside a circle). Items some people won't voice a desire for, but would still purchase!



  • I would like to see crossed checkered flags or just a checkered flag.



  • A good cat charm. There are lots out there, but I've never seen one I really cared for. Same goes for a pink flamingo. How about a raindrop?



  • Nataraja Siva (dancing siva) charm



  • More state charms, please! Customers asking for NE specifically. thx!



  • Roller Derby charms!!



  • A little map of Ireland would make a beautiful charm!



  • Hello, I would like to suggest a Pearl Cage Pendant in Vermeil that can be opened. This way the color of pearl could be changed per the outfit being worn. It would be like having 3 or 4 pieces of jewelry in one.



  • I love that you made state charms. I ordered the Hawaii charm but thought it was on the small side. I would love it if you offered it in 2 sizes. The current size is great for earrings but I would like to see a bigger size for necklaces that has some room for stamping. Thanks!



  • Would love to see a larger size (medium) of your gold arabesque link and the T1146 post with a loop that opens. It would also be great if you could update your tradeshow page. I live in the Bay Area and would love to see of your items in person.



  • Please, please, please a North Carolina charm!



  • I would love to see a vermont state charm



  • An Iowa charm, please! :)



  • Blue Nile used to make an infinity knot pendent that's so beautiful - I'm sad because they've discontinued it. I think the design of the interlocking circles would look lovely in your catalog.



  • Dearest designers, you have missed a few parts of our "state". The charm for Hawaii is only one of the islands- and not the island where our capital is. If you do a bit of research you will find that a charm of the state of Hawaii has a more accurate shape. Many have done it successfully, I suggest (and recommend if you don't want to be pegged goofs)that you correct the design. MANY would love to have the correct one- especially from NINA DESIGNS- cuz we all love you! Of course there are those people that live on the "Big Island that will appreciate the charm, but all the other residents might feel left out. So sad, sniff sniff...



  • Do you have plans to make an evil eye connector charm, something similar to GA743? My customer's would love it!



  • Know what would be awesome?? A vermeil style open ring! I'd love an oval one, but round would work too (5mm). I need something that color matches all the fantastic vermeil style links that I want to turn into charms. Thanks!



  • I would LOVE to be able to buy rose gold tree of life charms PLEASE I have customers asking for them ALL the time xx thank you, I do love all of your products xxx



  • #1 Your charms and ideas are fantastic I love everything I've ordered. #2 Would you PLEASE make charms like the "destiny" that say "fate" (which gets a bad rap as negative) which I'm sure is why it isn't made but I have a design in my head and need that charm! PLEASE????



  • I would love love love it if you have bigger one of this item: VNA1118 · Natural Bronze Bird Skull Charm The current charm itself is about 20mm. It'd be perfect if it's 30mm plus the ring and loop, or just a loop the other way.



  • Good evening Nina, I would love to have a pendant similar to those tiny charms, we can find in Brazil. A "Cristo Rei" pendant. I've never seen médium size ones. Only vey tiny and only importing from Brazil.It's very simple but beautiful. I'm sure it'd be a success!Plain form with open arms. Thank you



  • I would love to find a charm or pendant to give to mothers who have suffered a miscarriage. Such as a heart with the silhouette of a tiny pre-born baby inside, with a larger head and little arm and leg buds. It would fit nicely on one side of the heart, and be a sweet way to remember their baby. I have search everywhere and cannot find a place to buy something like this. Thank you!



  • Checking in again on new poetry or quote tags! Always customer favorites. Thanks for considering :)



  • I would love to see a bronze chain.



  • Love your bronze!! Would love to have a bronze stud earring...thanx



  • I would love to see A682 made in gold vermeil. Our customer's continue to ask for it instead of opting for GA1161.



  • Me again... I'd love to see a small "peanut" and "bean" charms ie nicknames for babies (my little peanut or bean).



  • I would love to see the diff styles of 18 wheelers. My fiancee is a truck driver. I have several trucker wives on my fb friends n they prolly love pendents of the trucks their men drive.



  • Do you carry a prayer box, or cats paw?



  • I would love to see some individual curved links. For example take S2735 · if you would cut this link into two links at the bottom 'V' and add loops, this would give me a great deal of flexibility in making designs.



  • I would love more quotes! They are always great in sterling, but some in bronze would be amazing!



  • I would love some disks esp., in bronze. Would like both flat and wavy with a central hole and without a hole. Would like to see 18 to 20mm. I use them for allot of things and they are always a challenge to find. Thanx and continue the great work...Linda



  • I'd love to see a cute bike charm. thx!



  • I would love to see you bring back rose gold too. If you can't get the plating right (and most places I have purchased plated rose gold or vermeil, the rosé gold would discolor and flake), maybe bring some rosé gold filled products instead. I have never had a problem with rosé gold filled, except for the problem of not having a lot of variety in this metal.



  • Would love to see a round cut-out charm - an anchor! Simple, symbolic, and very versatile. Can be interpreted as religious, nautical, or retro rockabilly!



  • New website very nice in Firefox, but unusable in IE7.



  • A paper airplane charm!



  • I've been hunting for Alcoholics Anonymous charms. As a huge fan of Nina Designs, I'd love to see you offer some of the AA Unity Symbol or camel pendants!



  • Hi! I'd be interested in item A864 with holes on either side... same w/other small charm shapes, so they can be in-line on chain, not just a charm. Thanks!



  • Can you guys do more of the dog charms in bronze? Would love the paw print single and triple in bronze. Thank you for considering... Vicki Casillas



  • A1156 · Sterling Silver Arrow Charm Very delighted to see this as I have been looking for a quality arrow charm. Any chance this could be done as a link as well so the arrow can be worn east-west?



  • Wish you would do some of your simpler, hammered clip-on earrings in Bronze.



  • Really looking forward to the new quotes. Any ETA on those? Thank you, Vicki Casillas dcasillas@verizon.net



  • I know you have new quotes coming and am very excited about that! Can you do some of them (old or new) in bronze? Thank you!



  • This earring would be great in bronze especially since it is available in a smaller size in bronze. Will be be available soon in bronze? T2252 · Sterling Silver Large Lotus Petal Earring Finding



  • I NEED gold plated vermeil open jump rings - 4mm 20 gauge and 6mm 18 gauge are my most used. Please!



  • I love to sell your beautiful pendants on a silk string. What has become hard to find is good quality 5 to 6mm metal large hole beads that allow 2 strands of silk passing through to hold the pendants. The pearls are really cute, but too big if I want to use a charm, or smaller pendants as the focal. The large hole gemstone beads are beautiful but also big and aren't cost effective for sales.



  • Just wanted to say that I ordered the 16" silver ball chain and paid $25.00 and after 1 year if fell apart. I was very careful with it. I'm disappointed with this item.

    Nina Designs: Thank you Eileen for your feedback. We will definitely pass this along to our vendor. In the meantime, we would like to offer you a replacement for the one that broke on you. We will contact you via email to continue this conversation offline. We appreciate your business!



  • I have seen a few really cute origami 'paper' crane charms around, and while they are nice, they are no where near as nice as the quality that you sell. Any chance you might design one in the near future?

    Nina Designs: Hi Heather - We like the idea of origami inspired charms, and have also seen them trending. We will add it to our list of customer suggestions. Thanks for your input!



  • T2193 - would love to have this in natural bronze!



  • I love the design of the whole world charm, however, I wonder if there could be an Eastern Hemisphere version. I moved to Australia recently and know it would be of great interest to my local and Asian customers.



  • Your bronze collection is growing and wonderful!! Would you consider adding a bronze charm holder similar to S362? Since bronze jump rings are hard to come by it would be great to have something to slide multiple charms on without having to cut the existing soldered jump rings. :-)



  • Would you consider making two more word charms? One hopefully with just the word "BE" and the other "EMBRACE LIFE".......either round or rectangle. Thanks so much!



  • Suggestion: I am looking for bead cones and you have a fabulous collection. However, I am looking for 15mm+ width cones and it would be helpful to have the widths in the tagline or the small description so I don't have to open each one to find this dimension.



  • Just received my order-thank you for sending it SOOOO fast!Just a quick comment/question: The starfish post earrings (item# GT582) although when I looked closer at the picture I could see it was as delivered, I do think that it should be concave (more like the beads of the same design)instaed of flat-more like the actual creature it emulates. Designers please take note. Although i do like them as they are, I would LOVE them if the were more "done" (it is obvious that the quickest, easiest way was used to make these -as in flat-). A creature of the sea has more dimension and as the beads form shows, it is especially beautiful when the item has all dimensions done closer to real-life. A SUGGESTION!!! Thanks so much for being- you have gorgeous findings, I am so glad to find you.Aloha from maui, Hawaii- Maui Sea Jewels.



  • Is it possible to plate an item with 14k gold instead of 22 or 24K gold? I find the yellow of your gold plated items to be too garish, and would much prefer a softer yellow. Thanks!



  • Any chance you could make the dog charm A812 bigger (x2) and in silver plated bronze? Ditto with paw charms. Thanks!



  • Can you add stamping blank in Rose gold, I get many request for them,any one else interested?

    Nina Designs: While this sounds lovely, we no longer offer Rose Gold. With the balance between cost and quality, we found we couldn't viably offer a high quality Rose Gold that meets our high standards. But we appreciate your suggestion. Please keep them coming.



  • Please will you consider S2571 in vermeil, it would open so many new styles for me. It is already my best seller it should be in vermeil..Please!!



  • Would LOVE to go ahead with my order however min of $30 international shipping (to Australia)is far to expensive. Such a shame as I was recommended... However beautiful site & very easy use and shop, just my cart will be abandoned :(



  • I would love more quotes! Customers love these. Very personalized. Thank you



  • Would love to see S2401 in Gold Plate Vermeil



  • Am loving the natural bronze items - the colour is superb and the match to gold fill fantastic - would love to also see the small family tree in natural bronze please ?????



  • Begging for more quotes!! My customers cant get enough. Please, Please, Please!!!



  • Hi there. I would love tips on photographing shiny silver items. I'm using a lightbox/dslr camera, but the reflection is making the silver look dark/black. Thanks!



  • Please do some more Quote pieces. They are so popular and I always have requests for more. Most popular is the Eleanor Roosevelt. Thank you for considering.



  • I love your Sterling Silver Cross Link (A1070). Do you plan on making the same link in gold vermeil?



  • I recently had a request for a larger eye charm. I would also love to see this style chain UCH187 in a bright silver rather than the oxidized finish.



  • Love the new lotus ring, especially as its adjustable. Please make this in gold filled. And, I would love to see more adjustable flower rings in both gold fill and sterling silver.



  • Hi, I love your sterling silver pieces. Even though precious metals have gone up in price, I am still selling these Ices, so please don't get ride of sterling silver. Also, I design a lot for the bridal market and I would love you to carry your sheer, fairy ribbon in white. I'm afraid, any color and some brides to be won't buy the jewelry. So, please, add white to your ribbon lines.



  • Hi Nina, My son was born Down Syndrome. I would like to make awareness bracelets, but i so not see a down syndrome awareness ribbon charm in your awareness selections. Is that something you would consider making? It would be a wonderful piece to us of down syndrome children or family members that love to make jewelry and get the awareness out. Thank you, and love you pieces, Julie A Martin



  • you have a few music notes, not very masculine. How about a guitar pik to use by itself?



  • I think your website is laid out beautifully. I especially appreciate the ability to see the exact size of pieces. Also, you provide all the info needed to make quality pieces. Thanks



  • I love your unique styles, but occasionally I would like a little more sparkle in the earring section, specifically the lever back section. I would love to have a lever back that would have a 5 to 8mm cubic zirconium as a decoration on these lever backs. I love to add pearls to lever backs, especially for bridal jewelry, but too many brides have asked me for this addition, that I thought I should pass this on to you. I hate losing business because I don't have this element "in my toolbox".



  • I wonder why you don't have a yin yang design...you have the words, but not the symbol. Love your tiny charms, especially the look and price of the bronze pieces!



  • I would love to see some more jeweled pieces in your inventory. I just purchased some of you clasps like that in the clearance section. I would especially like to see some earring findings and chandeliers with clear CZs, as well as some focal beads that would also have clear CZs. You have such beautiful designs, that some of these designs with beautiful accents would give me a lot of great options for designing for the bridal market.



  • Cutlery? Spoons, forks, knives? Coffee cup? thx!



  • Can you make the following angel wings in the left version. A971 A696 A548 Can you make the following cross 25mm & 30mm size: A1070



  • I would love a silver nest charm with a single gold egg



  • We are always on the hunt for a Base Clef as our daughter plays the trombone. We have never seen one!



  • I love your bronze products. I would love it if you would sell chains and/or jump rings to match your bronze. Everything I have ordered from you is exquisite. Thank you.



  • Love your website! I would like to see tiny U.S. state charms!



  • I just came back from Colombia where I was dazzled by the vermeil pre columbian beads and pendants based on designs at the Gold Museum of Bogota. Any chance you could add some of those to your collection



  • I would love to see some rings made with your silver plating or bronze finish. These would be cost effective for buyers and sellers.



  • More opportunities to purchase below the minimum $100 for wholesale. Some of us who love your offerings, must order a similar piece from another company to fill an order, because we cannot wait until we have enough to make the minimum. If you need to see that we are retailing, we can send our tax id info.

    Nina Designs: Hi Karen - Having a $100 minimum is a decision we have carefully thought through. We are a small company of 12 people, so an increased volume of orders would change our business model entirely, and require many adjustments we cannot make. We do offer a once a year courtesy to each customer to order under the minimum, and we just developed a customer loyalty program called the Designers Circle. One of the benefits is once you spend $10K with us, you can place orders of any size forever. See more details on Designer's Circle.



  • I'd love to see you get some sun charms around 8mm in size.



  • I am disappointed you no longer have rose gold. I hope the problem with the finish gets fixed. I'd love to be able to order findings in rose gold as well. Also, please consider adding silver plated bronze cross and snowflake dangle charms. Thank you!

    Nina Designs: Many of us loved the rose gold too! And were disappointed once we began to see discoloration with some of our stock. It was out of an abundance of caution that we decided to pull it. On the brighter side, we do take customer suggestions seriously, and I will pass along your requests. Thank you for your understanding.



  • I am loving the new bronze pieces. Any plans to make the Art Deco Rose pendant in natural bronze or gold plated bronze? I use these pieces as staples in my collections and want to be able to offer them in my more affordable.

    Nina Designs: Hi Barbara, Thanks! We now offer the small Deco Rose in bronze, and we will have it in gold plate bronze in a few weeks.



  • T2232, arabasque earrings, large and small, make them in Bronze.

    Nina Designs: We are looking into this, and will most likely be moving forward with your request soon. Look for these in the next month or so.



  • Diamond connectors... A398 style with loops at top and bottom. Thx!



  • We need a religious fish in gold & silver. Tiny with the fish hanging sideways from the jump ring.



  • Would love to see various spacers (like in Bali styles) in raw bronze -- the Nina Designs quality would make them awesome!



  • Native/tribal symbols are so big right now. Would love to see stone arrowheads maybe even stone inlay items?



  • I would love to see the original hammered finish, post, hoop earrings in large and medium done in Bronze. Everyone wears hoops, and the silver ones have become overpriced.



  • I would love to see the butterfly wing pendant in both the rose gold and in silver-plated bronze...



  • I could really use a post earring design that has a front disk with all over holes which clusters of gems, pearls & crystals could be wired to without a dangle.



  • More Bronze Please! Chain, chain, chain! Matching wire, beadcaps, jumprings, small hook clasps, and earwires.

    Nina Designs: We're working on it. Should have some of your requests in soon.



  • I would like to see some bronze endcaps,earrings and ear wires.



  • The Bronze line looks wonderful! You must make all the essentials with it, headpins, earwires, chain, hoop earrings, everything! My silver sales this year are so slow, maybe the bronze line will create my much needed boost! Thanks girls! Brilliant Ideas! Nina Designs: Great idea! We are hoping that our new bronze will create new opportunities for many of our customers. And we are already looking into getting the basic necessities in bronze, so check back soon.



  • I would dearly love to see some Rose Gold stamping blanks - customers are always asking me for these and I've searched high and low to no avail...



  • I would LOVE LOVE LOVE it if you provided your natural leaves in Bronze this fall! NINA DESIGNS: What a great idea. Those leaves would look beautiful in bronze. I will put it on our weekly meeting notes.



  • I'd love to see the butterfly wings in rose gold vermeil. I am LOVING all of the Rose Gold pieces. Nina Designs: We're so glad to hear you like the rose gold! I think that little wing would be adorable as well, I will add it to our weekly meeting notes.



  • I have been looking at your items and items that I just ordered from you last year, and the prices now are just rediculace.. I watch the market, I trade the market, and I don't understand... I have items that Will not sell, even pricing them JUST to break even. I don't know what happened, but it's a shame.. Oh and I bought the owl pendant, and I can't get that shine coating off of it, and it was 13.40... I cant get 13.40 for it....

    Nina Designs: Like all companies our prices are based on the cost of silver in the market, but unlike other companies we also design and fabricate our designs. Most other companies selling silver charms buy them to re-sell rather than design them. We offer unique, high quality jewelry supplies that we design in house and cannot be found anywhere else. We understand that increased prices are frustrating for everyone. We'd love nothing better than prices returning to 2006 levels (or earlier)!

    In an effort to reduce the cost of our designs, we will be offering them in bronze, silver plated bronze, and gold plated bronze. The first of these new bronze styles should be here sometime in July or August.

    In terms of pricing your jewelry Nina wrote a blog Jewelry Pricing Tips that's very helpful and chocked full of great advice. Here are a few more informative blog posts that may help you out: The Art of Jewelry Business and Design, Silver Jewelry Investment, and Recession Jewelry Marketing. We definitely sympathize with your concerns, and hope you to keep working, keep designing irresistible jewelry that women will love to buy and wear. Remember women have always and will



  • I love your pieces, they're beautiful and unique. I don't make jewelry to sell so sometimes it's hard for me to meet the $50 minimum. You already charge for shipping, get rid of the minimum order!



  • Would love to see a cross that is a link component (can be connected at top and bottom). thx! peggy

    Nina Designs: Hi Peggy. Have you seen the openwork cross, style A876? It can work as a pendant or as a link because you can attach to anywhere you'd like.



  • I have tried to contact Nina at her e-mail address and her e-mail address is suspended? Is this a problem on my end or is it really suspended. Can someone e-mail me with response. Thank you. Nina Designs:Our e-mail address is nina@ninadesigns.com. This is our customer service email where you can send questions regarding your orders and other questions. Please feel free to call us toll free at 1-800-336-6462 if you experience any problems so we can work through them together. Thanks.



  • Hi trying to buy, but your site says address to long, what do I do?? thanks

    Nina Designs: In this case, please include as much of your address as possible in the address fields, then submit the remainder that will not fit into the special instructions field. Or, please feel free to call us and we can work it out that way. Our number is (800) 336-6462.



  • I have noticed that even the Hill Tribe Silver that is carried by Fire Mountain is now offering pendants and earrings in this new silver Fill as is CGM. It might be worthwhile to investigate. Or do a silver plated brass or pewter. Very worthwhile to follow up on this. People still want to buy jewelry but I find I need to offer a broader base of items and be realistic about people's budgets.

    Nina Designs: Thanks for your suggestion. We are currently knee deep in the process of introducing a new bronze line to our customers. There are still a lot of kinks to iron out, but we'll be offering bronze, silver plated bronze, and gold plated bronze. We are excited with the results, they look great. We'll launch the line sometime mid-summer 2011.



  • Hi! Can we request the rose gold plating for custom gold plate orders? thx! Nina Designs: Yes you can! It works just like our special orders for 24K vermeil. See our Special Order Policy for details.



  • I would love a new word for the rectangle series charms. Perspective is that possible?



  • Hamsa Hand in gold plate, please :) Peggy

    Nina Designs: This is now available: Style GA951.



  • Hi, I'd like to see a larger version of a559, the lotus petal charm. Like in the 12mm size. thanks! peggy

    Nina Designs: This is also available now, as style A1021.



  • I would love a link shaped like a clover with 4 petals but open in the middle. I think it would be great for long, delicate chain necklaces. Another great option would be 2 or mor clovers linked together.



  • Stop raising your prices.
    Nina Designs: The cost of silver in the world market is out of our control. We don't like raising our prices. It'd hard for us and for you. But we really have no choice.



  • I love your shop Nina. I'm a small jeweler, so your items being unique have been wonderful.



  • I find your website one of the most wonderful I have ever used. Perfectly designed. Thank you!



  • I'd love to see an evil eye charm that is smooth silver, not the textured/oxidized look. As both a charm dangle and a link. Thanks!
