In 2002, when Nina Egli was studying acting at The Lee Strasberg Institute in New York, she began to make jewelry. Not content to be a side project, Toujours Toi gradually took on a life of its own; a happy state of affairs which Nina describes as sharing her life with “a demanding, wonderful, strange, funny and spoiled child.”
A Switzerland native, Nina now works from a studio in Brooklyn. All the pieces are handmade either in New York or Zurich.
The ideas for each of the 11 collections come from the artful combination of references, which are put together to make something unique.
