Nadia Younis is a Birmingham based jewellery designer, born in Kashmir and grew up in the UK, She first came in contact with the art of hand made jewellery whilst visiting a tribe in Kashmir. The Tribe sold handmade jewellery to the locals. She later pursued her studies in Jewellery and Silversmithing at the world renowned School of Jewellery in Birmingham.
Whilst still at University, Nadia worked as an Assistant Designer for a well known Design House, designing jewellery for major High Street stores. However, realising her true passion was in the making of the jewellery and with the belief that the art of handmade jewellery is getting lost, she decided to go back to University to complete her final year.
