Juhani wears NIALAYA leather bracelets combined with NIALAYA beaded bracelets in New York City
Nialaya Founder and Designer, Jannik Olander sources inspiration for his new designs while travelling around the world. He spends most of his summers in southern Europe in places such as Mykonos, Greece and Ibiza, Spain – both strong inspiration sources for Jannik, which can certainly be noticed in a lot of Nialaya’s leather bracelet designs. Combining the bohemian touch that he gets from summers on the Europan islands, with the spirituality from Southeast Asia where Jannik first was inspired to start making jewelry, Nialaya’s leather bracelets are unique pieces of jewelry while also being exceptionally versatile.

Nialaya’s leather bracelets are handcrafted in our design studio on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. Using high-quality hand braided leathers that will only look better with age, and strong stainless steel details and closures, our leather bracelets are guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Our Black Leather Bracelet with Bali Clasp is a great example of an inspiration that came from one of Jannik’s trips to Bali, Indonesia. The stunning landscapes and laidback lifestyle inspired him to design a piece that would remind him of the time he spent on the astonishing island. The result became a one-of-a-kind leather piece, featuring a unique clasp in silver or gold with distinctive engraving. The bracelet is bohemian yet elegant and has been part of our collection for many years.

HOW TO STYLE OUR LEATHER BRACELETS
Our leather bracelet collection consists of pieces that are perfect for everyday-wear, while also looking great paired with a dressier look.
For everyday-wear, we love to layer the leather bracelets with a couple of
our colorful beaded bracelets to create a unique and casual look.
For nighttime looks, we prefer the leather bracelet either on its own or
paired with one of our matte black onyx beaded bracelets.

We stay true to authentic jewelry-crafting, using macramé braiding to combine our stones – a method originating from the 13th century. Due to the stones being natural, each and every beaded bracelet is truly unique and one-of-a-kind. No texture, color or bead size is exactly the same.

We believe in being friendly to the environment by sourcing most of our healing crystals from local vendors, and handcraft the bracelets in our Los Angeles studio. We don’t mass-produce or keep stock, but only make enough bracelets to fulfill orders and display our flagship store. Any damaged beaded bracelets are never thrown away, but we re-use and re-make the parts to create new beaded bracelets- we don't let anything go to waste. We strongly believe in being sustainable and as eco-friendly as we can be.
