Nature inspired jewelry

NYAMI - a bit of history and inspiration

Nyami jewelry is a small, female owned and run jewelry brand founded in 2003 and based in Sarzana, Italy. Every jewel is designed, handmade and finished by me, Enrica Barri and while I tend to say "we" sometimes,  it's actually just me here.  I am inspired from the intricate and marvelous forms of nature that I see around me in the Ligurian Riviera where I lives now, and from my memories from the village of my childhood in Lake Como.

These two places, Lake Como and Liguria,  have an element in common: “the mountains rising from the lake” celebrated by Manzoni in his novel  “The Betrothed”.

It is a powerful beautiful image from nature bringing forth wonder and admiration. 

The same emotions are crystallized in each  jewel so that  each piece is a unique creation fashioned by hand out of precious materials.

In these unique creations you can feel an emotion, a fragment of real life, an echo of an unforgettable day. This knows no boundaries as from this small town on the Ligurian Riviera these jewels reach faraway countries. Sometimes they bring tear of joy in the loved ones who receive them, while often are a gift to ourselves to remind us that we are unique.
