Designer Spotlight: Nicole Whisenhunt
Nicole Whisenhunt is back from her one-year sabbatical from jewelry design. The short break seems to have reignited her creative spark as her pieces this time around are literally bigger, bolder, and better than ever. The young designer who broke into the jewelry world four years ago, with her precious stone-embellished chain necklaces has just added beading, sewing and embroidery to her repertoire. Intricate bib necklaces are now what Nicole primarily serves up.


Nicole's bib necklaces make bold statements; they are not for the shy or the sartorially timid. When wearing one, expect to have all eyes glued on you. Expect too to feel like royalty, all decked out in the most opulent of trinkets. These attention-grabbing beauties are comprised of a mix of semi-precious stones, coin pearls, freshwater pearls and crystals that are hand-sewn and embroidered into luxe velvet and satin fabrics. Each piece is a labor of love, taking up to about 100 hours to complete. Each is hand sewn in various shapes and forms carefully envisioned by the designer.


Nicole offers made-to-order services for her bib necklaces. You can choose from a 12-piece collection and may opt to modify these ready designs. You can also ask Nicole to dream up something entirely new for you, ensuring that your necklace fits you like a glove.


For those who'd rather not sit and wait for the two to three week process, head on over to Firma, where Nicole's beautiful bib necklaces are immediately up for grabs.
