Triggering emotions through the art of jewelry craftsmanship. Notably singular.
Born and raised on the shores of the Mediterranean in Beirut, Lebanon, Nayla Shami practiced law before moving to the high plains of West Texas with her husband to begin her family and start her jewelry business.
The clear blue water of the Mediterranean, and the cool palette of its beaches, are evident in each unique, hand-wrought piece of Nayla's jewelry. Nayla thinks primarily of the Mediterranean and the sun that makes it sparkle like a gem as she chooses many of her precious and semi-precious stones. Her pieces combine the blue skies, wide-open spaces, and stunning sunsets of West Texas with those formative, artistic influences of her Mediterranean heritage.
Nayla designs and handcrafts most of her pieces at her bench in Lubbock, Texas. A world away, in Beirut, Lebanon, some of her original designs are made by talented jewelers whose craft is founded upon generations of artisans famous for their attention to detail and quality in metalwork and stone settings. These artisans are chosen personally by Nayla and work closely with her in their studios to achieve her vision. Wrought with metals and gemstones of the highest grades, Nayla’s pieces are crafted to be worn and enjoyed for a lifetime.
