Ninika’s parents were also handmade crafters so she has spent her whole life attending craft festivals.
She started out as a jewelry maker in her youth but gave it up when she moved and no longer had a studio space. For 30 years, she worked alongside her husband Richard in his wood joinery furniture making business.
She has returned to her preferred medium with renewed inspiration. She makes hand crafted one of a kind gold, copper and recycled silver jewelry with natural and hand painted stones.
She gets ideas for new designs while hiking in rural Virginia where she lives with her husband, Richard Gordon. Custom orders for wedding rings or specific designs are always welcome.
