My name is Nina Banks of Elements Inspired and I am a wife, a stay at home mom, and few years ago I became a jewelry designer. When my kids both started school, I began to market a line of beautiful jewelry inspired by nature, the elements, and music. It is an ever evolving line as I go from being a self trained artist, to gaining more skills as I take lampglass classes and study metalsmithing at The Denver School of Metal Arts.
This fall’s collection was inspired by a trip through Estes Park Colorado observing the leaves and the tundra and all of the wonderful changing colors of the leaves. The Winter collection is shaping up to include a play on the combination of rustic metals and crystal inspired by the accidental dropping of a strand of Chinese crystals into a snow bank and watching the amazing light play as it caught the sun. I can’t wait to find out what the future holds.
