Recognized for his innovative departures from standard metalworking techniques and an experimental aesthetic that remains complex yet classic, Nak Armstrong has been a leading designer of fine jewelry for over a decade. In early 2011, Nak Armstrong debuted his eponymous collection. By the close of the year, it was already being sold in fine boutiques nationwide, such as Barney’s NY, and was garnering early praise by national press.Armstrong’s quest has always been to make jewelry not look like jewelry. He uses a mix of stones to create a tapestry surface that resembles fabric. His silhouettes contain tremendous dimension and volume akin to clothing.
