Psyche is handmade in Brooklyn, New York by Nina Berenato. Nina Berenato, a native of St.Louis, Missouri, began her career in fashion design. Travelling through the Midwest and eventually finding her way to New York City, Nina found herself bored with a job as a stylist in SoHo and took a beginner’s metalsmithing class in the evenings to fulfill her creative compulsion. As she learned the basics of metal work, Nina truly fell in love with the art and design process involved in jewelry making.
In 2012 Psyche was born with its first collection called ‘Cosmic’. Constantly driven to create, Nina explores new materials and processes with each new collection. Her compositions are inspired by ancient mythology, abstraction, and feminine strength. Psyche is a meeting of modernism and reminiscence, subtlety and power.
Psyche Jewelry has been seen in Nylon magazine, The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar, Creem, and Status, as well as an appearance on the Beyonce’s Superbowl halftime show and Lady Gaga’s MTV VMA video.
Nina is committed to environmental stability and uses recycled metals and ethically sourced stones. All production is done domestically in Brooklyn, NY.
