Nashira Arno is a proud Latina — born and raised in the Dominican Republic & currently based in New York City.
She’s a Jewelry Designer and Creative Consultant, and she’s also the Founder & Creative Director of Nashira Arnō Jewelry.
She uses her work as a personal project to challenge her identity, aesthetic and purpose as a designer.
Nashira Arnō Jewelry has evolved into a mission-based jewelry brand dedicated to highlighting and supporting artisan craftsmanship with a focus on sustainability. “Our limited quantity capsule collections come to life through creative partnerships and collaborations with independent artisans & emerging talent, especially women and those from undeveloped countries and unique backgrounds”, says the artist.
Based on her gemological studies and cultural, artistic and history explorations, she believes that the most seductive thing in existence is the beauty of nature as it speaks to us without words. It attracts us.
“In their undeniable beauty, gemstones and precious metals are given from the earth like flowers to be admired. They carry earth’s energy, like the woman that wears them.”
For this jewelry collection, Nashira draws inspiration from the nostalgia of endless sunny days experienced on her native island.
Fascinated with the universe and inspired by the Sun’s forms, interpretations, and its planetary alignments, this collection becomes an abstract study of the solar system.
Love Stone Collection
For the Love Stone Collection, Nashira finds inspiration from the idealization of an abstract era of modern romanticism. Clean forms adorn themselves to convey the complexity of simplicity, charged with harmony by the stone of eternal love.
Nashira Arnó’s elegant jewelry pieces are made all the more timeless by their simplicity. With a Soft palette of precious metals and Modern geometric shapes, they invoke the eye of those with a minimalist soul.
