About the Artist
Nikki Nation’s jewelry is comprised of simple yet elegant forms in gold and silver. Nikki earned her BFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, and her MA in Arts Administration from the University of Denver. Her work is inspired by urban landscapes, textures, patterns, repetition, and design elements. All of her creations are made using traditional metalsmithing techniques, focusing on hammering, forging, texturing and stone setting.
