Eight Five One was founded by self-taught designer and maker, Nia Coffey 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 where I first learned to make jewelry. I began making jewelry at a young age as a creative outlet that stayed with me for my adult years, mostly as a side passion. I would make pieces for myself and my friends, and people would often ask to buy them off my body. I then realized, that maybe I could make this into something I did full time. Eight Five One was then launched in 2016. Jewelry to me is the magical touch to making you feel beautiful. No matter the occasion, every woman deserves to shine and be reminded of her beauty. Jewelry is that for me."
