Nina Rithalia is a British contemporary jewellery and silverware designer and maker. After studying an Art Foundation course at Leeds College of Art and Design she focused on jewellery by learning design and making skills at The Manchester College and Computer Aided Design (CAD) at Holts Academy, London. She is currently on the Starter Studio Programme for Silversmiths at Yorkshire Artspace in Sheffield.

"I like the decorative nature of jewellery but also the functionality of silverware. In my work I use clean lines, geometric shapes and patterns and don’t want to over-complicate items. I think silver should be engaged with, used and touched, and not be left on a shelf."

As a member of Manchester Jewellers Network Nina currently has work for sale in The Manchester Art Gallery Shop and takes part in various exhibitions throughout the year.
