The Winter Olympics are back, let the fanfare begin! This week we feature some Russian specialties you can enjoy in Sochi (you lucky duck!) or make at home (like the rest of us). Whether you’re spectating or just trying to survive life on the east coast (trust us, not an easy winter), don’t forget to stay warm! Here are our faves that are getting us into the Winter Olympic spirit!
Now that it’s mid-December, Christmas is coming in fast! This week we want to dedicate this Friday Faves to starting in on the Christmas spirit. Enjoy!
We’re so excited for the first major holiday of the season, so this week we want to bring you our Friday Thanksgiving Favorites! Enjoy!

With the weather become more and more chilly, we figured we would bring you some of our favorite things to keep you warm, stylish, and satisfied. Have a great weekend!
Since Saturday is the Autumnal Equinox and marks the beginning of fall, this week we decided to bring you some of our favorite things inspired by the best colors fall has to offer!
It’s true! Studies have shown that there are, in fact, not enough hours in the day! That doesn’t mean, however, you have to stress about looking fabulous all day, every day. We at Nissa are giving some tips to all you hard working ladies out there who love to accessorize, but don’t know how to take your office look to your nighttime look. Here are three ideas we came up with to help you go-getters out.
This first look is inspired for those who are going out for dinner, a movie, or maybe even both! The Roxy necklace is a great piece to add some flare to your simple clothes, and the Star Stud earrings will leave those at the office (or maybe your hot date after work) starstruck.
Fall is coming, and here we take working girl from the office to the study guru in the classroom. We’ve paired the Wave Triple Cuff with our Raya Pendant Necklace in blue, cognac, and white to add some simple elegance to your autumn collection. These pieces are great because they go with just about anything!
Last, but certainly not least, we have a look that’ll make you truly stand out… in the office or on the town. Cobalt and black look great with these gold pieces—the Mesh Link Collar Necklace and the Cobblestone Triple Earring (as seen on Katherine Heigl!). Every girl likes to dress up now and then, and with Nissa Jewelry you can do just that!
Good luck ladies! And don’t forget to treat yourself :)
Extra big, that is. This season it’s all about the oversized look… but that doesn’t mean it can’t be flattering AND stylish! Today we wanted to show you some very basic ideas for that new fall closet of yours, and of course we added out own personal touch with some Nissa Jewelry, all available at nissajewelry.com.
With summer just around the corner, we’re all looking for ways to cool down while still being stylish. This is why we are absolutely obsessed with cutouts. They are the easiest way to stay cool and fashionable this summer.
Cutouts are very popular in dresses and tops. Luckily, they are not limited to fabrics. We have incorporated cutouts into some of our new and favorite pieces, like these cuffs, necklaces, and earrings. This trend has made its way into footwear too. We seriously cannot get enough of this summer trend!
Are you anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring? Desperately dreaming of warmer winds and flowers that color the grass with pinks, purples and yellows? Us too. Here at the studio, we’re stepping into spring a bit early with our new Presley collection. These new pieces blend pearlized leather and tassel accents, with pastel hues to create a fantastic look for this upcoming season.
Choose from tassel earrings, a leather wrapped bracelet or a long pendant necklace to complete your look with a pop of pastel:
And don’t worry—these styles, along with the Roxy, Sydne and Delano Collections that we introduced these past few weeks, are all available on our website. Shop happy :)
Here’s another peek into one of the latest collections Nissa Jewelry is debuting for the spring—take a look at our new Delano designs:
While our new neon styles provide a bold pop of color, the Delano Collection uses pastels, with a touch of glitz, to get everyone in the mood for spring. This new collection is a twist on our popular Art Deco styles, revealing a new set of hues for this season.
The word ‘excited’ does not even begin to describe our emotions towards the newest Nissa designs! Featuring some of the most brilliant baubles in the history of our brand, we are incredibly pleased to present our versatile and eye-catching collections of neon jewels.
There seems to be a common misconception on the fashion front- that it is a tedious task to add color to one’s ensemble during the cold weather months. Our new neon collections aim to prove this preconception wrong while encouraging style-conscious consumers to brighten their day, the Nissa Jewelry way;)
Our neon jewels are separated into two styles- Sydne and Roxy. We invite you to explore the new designs while learning the simple steps to incorporating color into your cold-weather ensembles…
Spruce up an otherwise ordinary arm party by incorporating a bold new bracelet from our Sydne style….
And ensure that all eyes are on you with one of our easily adaptable neon necklaces from in our Roxy style:
Both styles will give any outfit that unexpected pop of color that we’re sure everybody is looking for during these winter months.
With just 10 days until the new year, we thought it would be appropriate to give our favorite 2012 Nissa pieces the spotlight. It proved a difficult task to come up with just twelve trinkets but after much deliberation we present to you our most beloved Nissa baubles of this year…

Casablanca Multi Necklace - Neha Double Cuff - Seminole Earring - Kaya Bracelet
Talasi Jeweled Ring - Kiki Necklace - Jovina Necklace - Grace Earring
Ingrid Earring - Empire Ring - Clara Bracelet - Sumi Collar Necklace
Each holiday has it’s quintessential “icons”- Halloween owns the pumpkin, Easter is all about the colorfully decorated eggs and no Christmas would be complete without a tree to put wonderfully-wrapped presents under. Here at the studio, we are all in agreement that one of the easiest ways to ensure a happy holiday is to start celebrating early. Yep, that’s right- we are the epitome of “those people” who turn on the Christmas tunes before ‘Black Friday’ has begun and can be found discussing holiday party themes before most people have even pondered possible presents for their loved ones. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that our office is glowing with Christmas spirit from wall to wall.. and has been for quite some time now:)
This year, we took it upon ourselves to inject a little ‘Nissa Jewelry’ into our decorations and- after staring at our smile-inducing trinket-trimmed tree for a couple weeks now- we felt compelled to share our awesomely a-typical creation with you! Nissa Jewelry is known for it’s eclectic re-imagining of forgotten vintage pieces and thus, we said ‘so long’ to ordinary ornaments and instead, incorporated aspects of us into the adorning-process. The result? A beautifully charming tree that incorporates the ‘uptown sophistication’ and ‘downtown edge’ that characterizes each of our brilliantly handmade baubles…
As you can see from the photos above, we used various styles of gold and silver chain to compliment the classic white lights. To add to the aesthetic appeal while still sticking with the tree’s ‘simplistic’ style, we hung wire hook earrings from it’s branches. The gold dangly pairs provide a bold statement when viewing the icon from afar while the various-sized pearl earrings lay the foundation for a fun- yet delicate- take on the average run-of-the-mill ornament. We didn’t stop there… what tree would be complete without a shining statement up top?
Our Angel Wing Necklace provided a perfect starting point for our one-of-a-kind tree topper. We concluded the creative craft by incorporating some leftover chain to detail the angel’s gown and lastly, used a bold jewel for her head! Yeah, a colorful bow would have sufficed but our twenty minutes spent on the above ‘beaut ensured that the tree sincerely stood for the studio’s holiday spirit.
Just as Nissa reinvents vintage treasures in her creation of our jewelry line’s curiously creative collection, we encourage you to put your unique spin on this season’s most iconic decorations… the options are actually endless!
If our a-typical take on ‘trimming the tree’ left you eager to find ways to inject your personality into your home this holiday, check out our "Eclectically Embellished Holiday" Pinterest board. We are hopeful that perusing the pins will not only provide you with the perfect platform for inspiration but will also perpetuate our mission over here at the studio of spreading significant amounts of Christmas cheer:) We wish you the healthiest and happiest of holidays and sincerely can’t wait to see what you craft up!
Raise your hand if you’re not hating dawning your fuzzy socks every day and having an excuse to have a hot chocolate after dinner… same response over here at the studio- no hands! The cold weather has finally greeted us and we’re loving our circle scarves more than anything at the moment. Our next favorite thing you ask? Easy- holiday parties! Come December, we’re ready to get decked out in our Winter best and toast to yet another amazing year saying so long. There’s no better way to celebrate than with fantastic friends, fun food and of course the latest and greatest fashion finds. We hope one of our styles encourages you to ‘get in the spirit’ and we wish each of you the happiest of holiday seasons!
