IOLINA is a line of contemporary jewelry that embodies sophisticated, effortless adornment. Designed with movement in mind, IOLINA becomes an elegant extension of the body that complements its curves and contours.
But for a few aspects of production executed by longtime industry experts in Manhattan, each piece of jewelry is handmade by Nina Fagiola in her Long Island studio.
Nina gravitated toward jewelry making as a very young child - constantly creating simple beaded, clay, and woven pieces - and was introduced to metalsmithing and lost wax casting in high school. She was captivated by the magic of metals early on and always knew that creating jewelry would become a lifelong pursuit. A former NYC Art Teacher in Brooklyn, Nina still teaches part time while honing her craft and building her business.
