Nicolina was born in the heart of the Canadian prairies in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Her passion for jewellery design began in 2012 while visiting New Zealand on a meditation retreat. As an emerging jewellery artist, she learned her craft through mentorship with Metalsmith, Designer and Goldsmith Colin Forster of Queenstown, New Zealand and a formal apprenticeship with Artist, Designer, Goldsmith Sasha Shkolnik of Steveston, BC. She moved to Ontario in 2016, where she started her business Flux Jewelry Design, her sole work.
For Nicolina, hand crafting in metal is an exploration in line, light, form, colour, shape and mindfulness. She works with precious metals including recycled anti-tarnish silver alloys, sterling silver, fine silver and recycled 14K 18K and 24k gold. She is currently exploring roll printing, reticulation, fold forming and Keum Boo in her work. Nicolina lives and works at her farm studio in southwestern Ontario where she continues to build her jewellery collection.
