Nix Jewelry designer and founder Nicole A. Lefranc was born and raised in Puerto Rico. At the age of 17 she moved to NYC to study art and fashion. After graduating with a BFA from Parsons School of Design, she continued her fine arts training in Berlin and Barcelona. Nicole’s exploration of cultures, art, and ancient symbolism from around the world inspired her to evolve her art into jewelry. She has focused on creating bold designs that transmit a sense of strength which can be seen and felt. Each piece in the collection strikes a balance between aesthetic harmony and symbolic meaning to inspire and empower the wearer.
Nix Jewelry pieces are sculptural due to Nicole’s process in which she hand carves all the pieces in wax. These wax sculptures are then casted into sterling silver, bronze or gold. Every piece in the collection is ethically handmade in Miami, FL from start to finish.
