Nichole McIver is a self-taught maker and Acanthus is hand made by her personally, in her home studio in Central Minnesota. She finds inspiration in everything from the decorative foliage found in the margins of illuminated manuscripts, to the secret symbolism of Victorian mourning jewelry.

The Acanthus Collection is hand crafted in oxidized silver, 14k gold and 24k gold, and uses semi-precious and precious gemstones such as rainbow moonstones, diamonds and the incredibly unique, dendritic agate. The hand of the artist is revealed in each piece created, from forming metal, to stone setting, to delicately and painstakingly cutting gold imagery to create the patterns in her pieces. 

While these pieces are not available for purchase on our website, you can contact us to buy them directly.
