Tell us about your business.n+a new york is a jewelry line founded by sisters Noriko and Akiko Sugawara. Designing their collections and making all pieces in their studio in TriBeCa, New York City, Noriko and Akiko create finely crafted, handmade jewelry. Their designs reflect the subtle beauty of the details of both city life and nature. Details that often go unnoticed in the busy rush of ordinary life—the textures of rocks and leaves, details of historic buildings in New York City, cracks in subway walls, the sparseness of branches in winter, and the richness of blossoms and leaves in summer—catch their eyes and inspire the motifs of beautiful jewelry pieces. Respect for the nature of their materials connects their designs to their inspirations.
