nak armstrong

Recognized for his innovative departures from standard metalworking techniques and an experimental aesthetic, nak armstrong’s award-winning work continues to push the boundaries of design.

After having spent over a decade in the jewelry industry as the co-founder and creative director of a previous jewelry brand, he launched his eponymous label in 2011 and it was quickly selected by exclusive retailers worldwide, such as barneys new york, and was featured by national press including w, instyle, harper’s bazaar, and wwd.

Armstrong’s education in architecture and subsequent early career in fashion are evident in the engineering of his designs. Whether it’s the ruching and pleating of fabric, the ancient japanese art of origami, or the intricacy of nature, nak reinterprets these motifs with hundreds of proprietary gemstone cuts arranged in pixelated-like explosions of color.
