Patty Nulph has been presenting collections to the wholesale marketplace since 1983. She began by importing and selling one of a kind jewelry, beads, and textiles. Surrounded by beautiful art, ethnic culture and influenced by her travels she set up a design studio in Tacoma, Washington and created her first sterling silver group in 1993. A trip through Japan with her mother in 1997 led to the creation of the "Temple Series" which has served as the building block for the contemporary feel of FAI today.
Her work is sold throughout the United States in Museum stores, galleries and gift shops and fine women’s clothiers and has been sold internationally in Canada, Central America, Europe and Japan.
