Johnny Ninos, Green Door parent and Midland art teacher, creates stunning hand-crafted fine jewelry with recycled metals and ethically sourced diamonds.
Johnny received his BFA from Alfred University where he studied sculpture. Post college he began teaching in the Visual Arts and boiling his skills down to a more intimate scale. Now viewing jewelry as wearable sculpture, Johnny is inspired by the delicate and complex connections and systems found in nature. Spending time along the California coast exploring intertidal formations and ecosystems has greatly influenced his current collections.
