Hey, its Election Day!

If it’s not apparent from the plethora of political ads you have probably seen this morning (I swear I saw six alone in my thirty-minute news watching endeavor) or the abundance of “I voted” stickers acting as accessories to commuters’ outerwear today- it’s finally Election Day! The day of patriotic toast for breakfast, shoes sporting elephants and donkeys and most importantly, the day we pick our next President! 

Unbiased sites like ‘Vote Smart' allow visitors to choose the issues most important to them and ultimately understand which politician's platform most closely aligns with their attitudes. Check it out by clicking the image below- we actually learned a thing or two by perusing the various 'points'. 

Also, as always, Google is paving the path for obtaining information conveniently while displaying one of their ever-creative banners:) Click the image below to find out where you are registered to vote today! 

What party are we voting for you ask? Well, our strategic answer to that question is.. the Arm Party;) That’s right, not only are we proudly dawning our “I voted” stickers but also are subtly promoting our American pride with arms full of red, white and blue! 

Don’t think we’ve forgotten about you if an arm full of bright bracelets and bangles isn’t your thing! Our “Liberty Collection" most definitely has a patriotic piece that will perfectly align with your personal style:)

Here at the studio, we’ve tried to keep the political talk to a minimum but all are in agreement that this is a monumental day in our country’s history. So get out there and make yourself heard today. After all, every vote counts!  




DIY- Friendship Bracelets!

Yesterday when we were perusing Pinterest we came across the a quote that was particularly meaningful- “wherever we are, it is our friends that make our world”. It took us back as we began reminiscing about the good ‘ole days with our greatest of girl friends- where the heck would we be without them? Theres something to be said about a person that you know you can call up at any moment of the day and know they will hear you out- whether you need to vent, need reassurance, or simply just want to smile.

In our bustling and busy lives it is very easy to take these types of friendships for granted and we want to change this habitual behavior! Thus, in honor of ‘National Friendship Day’ (this Sunday), we have created a tutorial for bright and bold best friend bracelets. In your down time this weekend, why not create one for your best gal pal and surprise her with it over Sunday brunch? We promise the DIY is painless and will undoubtedly produce a prize-winning present:) Enjoy! 


1. Take two large friendship bracelets and glue/ sew back one side of each bracelet

2. Attach a jump ring to each of those sides

3. Attach a chain to connect both

4. Add a two other jump rings to the other ends of the friendship bracelets and add  a  clasp to one of them

A Nissa-styled friendship bracelet!



1. Take three friendship bracelets and braid them into one big braid

2. Glue the ends to the back of the braid so they are no longer seen

3. Clip on two jump rings at each end of the braid

4. Attach a small chain to one of the jump rings and a clasp to the other

You have your very own friendship bracelet!

 If you find yourself thrown into ‘friendship fever’ head on over to our "Forever Friends" Pinterest board for some more smile-producing products and pictures:)

All Aboard the ‘Arm Party’ trend!

We are so excited and honored to have one of our most sustainable Nissa Jewelry pieces- our rope bracelet- featured on Good Morning America’s 'Deals and Steals' segment today! Consistently one of our best selling summer items, the four styles- ‘Dhara’, ‘Sammi’, ‘Kalli’, and ‘Molli' are all made using recycled cord and effortlessly compliment any arm party while adding the perfect pop of color for the season! Whether you're playing up the color-blocking trend, showing off your sport-inspired style, or want to express your environmentally friendly ideals- our adjustable rope bracelets truly appeal to all audiences. 

Seeing that the segment did air circa 8am- significantly before anyone over here at the studio are accustomed to the sunlight gracing our (then, not so smiley) faces- many cups of coffee were quickly consumed. Now, buzzing around the loft space, we have exhausted the majority of the energy-consuming activities allotted to us, and have decided to move on to channeling our creative vivaciousness towards a new endeavor. What might it be you ask? Well, after swapping countless stories and collectively coming to the conclusion that it’s not recognized enough- we decided to embark on a mission to promote one of our favorite trends this summer: the ‘arm party’. What could brighten your day more than having a reason to display your favorite bangles and bracelets- all in one place? We say very few things (except if you say beautiful free baubles, in which case check out our current contest *wink, wink*) so, following Good Morning America’s lead, we spotlighted some of our favorite rope bracelets in some effortless Nissa Jewelry ‘arm party’ looks. 

We hope our images featuring a bountiful supply of baubles and ‘bling’, encourage you to have fun- with rather than fear- the current trend and ultimately spark the summer stacking spirit inside you!   

P.S. Be sure to snag your rope bracelet for 60% off it’s normal retail price before the day’s end. Simply head on over to the 'Deals and Steals' site, pick up the discount code you’re set to start shopping the summer staple!
