Pamela M. Levin, designer of Nivell Jewelry, creates sterling silver and leather jewelry with high quality semi-precious stones mined from all over the world. Her newest leather collection brings bold colors and textures to leather jewelry using many luxurious Italian leathers, kidskin, lamb, fish leather, faux and genuine alligator, and cow. Pamela’s refreshing style exudes simple elegance by transforming her materials into smooth, modern, and clean lines. The designer firmly believes even the simplest of designs can make a dramatic statement. Nivell Jewelry is distinctive and versatile for all occasions.
Nivell Jewelry is strongly committed to the principle that all work is MADE IN AMERICA. Some components may be imported but the design and creation of the work will always remain here.
Growing up, Pamela developed an early appreciation of cultural arts in a family with plentiful talent in visual and performing arts. As a young girl, she remembered watching her father work in his studio and adorning the garden and home with a three foot strawberry, eight foot sculptures in wood, kinetic sculptures, and two dimensional works in many mediums. The influence continued with viewing the art projects and portfolios of her two older sisters as they studied textile and interior design. Pamela enjoyed trying the traditional mediums of art but initially decided to follow her penchant for the business world. Well equipped with a B.S. in Business/Marketing from Drexel University, she successfully applied her own version of creativity and business acumen in the corporate arena for many years. Pamela’s artistic roots inspired her to begin formal training in the technical aspects of jewelry design while continuing her vocation in sales and marketing. Establishing her jewelry studio at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts in 2000 for two years commenced Pamela’s journey to pursuing a career in designing and creating contemporary jewelry.
