Eight Five One was founded by designer and maker, Nia Lipka who began making jewelry at the age of 15. She currently runs Eight Five One in her LA studio while raising her family.
"Eight Five One was named after my childhood home in Venice, where I first learned to make jewelry. As an adult, I continued making pieces for myself, and friends. People would ask me, "where did you buy that?" It was then that I realized, maybe I could make this into something I did full time. Eight Five One was then launched officially in 2016. I have always been in love with jewelry--it has its own magical way of making you feel beautiful. No matter the occasion, every woman deserves to shine and be reminded of her beauty. Jewelry is that for me."
