The Thing Around Your Neck was created in 2011 by Swedish-American designer Amina Winkler.
At the time Amina was located in New York City and started making necklaces by hand from hardware store items.
2015 Amina relocated to Stockholm, Sweden, where she is currently studying Metal Design to continue to evolve her jewelry work and pursuing a career in Product Design. 

All items are handmade by the designer.
