Meet Founder & CEO, Kilee Nickels

Hello,

I am the founder and CEO of Nickel & Suede. Nickel & Suede is known for being the first to make lightweight leather earrings in our original teardrop shape. We’ve created a new category in statement jewelry that allows women to wear big accessories in ways they never have before. Customers call our earrings life changing. Not only are our big, bold, statement making pieces comfortable and lightweight, but they also add a level of confidence and courage to the women who wear them. N&S has become a symbol of empowering women to be bold, to take a chance, to know their worth and to change their life for the better.

Whether it's trying a big pair of earrings for the first time or starting a business or chopping off your hair, we believe that being brave builds confidence and changes "I can't" into "I can!" One small act of courage leads to another and another. It allows you to "become the kind of person who...." does anything! I believe that being brave helps us all discover our unique voices and to be our authentic, best selves. We also love that being brave inspires those around us to step out of their boxes too. Courage is contagious!

Sincerely,
Kilee Nickels signature
