Nettie Kent Black Tasman Earrings

by: Nettie Kent

  • The sparkling jets and greys of the crushed black tourmaline set in deep golden brass could not be a more striking complement. Each set of earrings are truly unique and will vary slightly in the colours in the crushed tourmaline. 

  • The tourmaline is crushed and inlayed in solid brass. 14K gold fill ear wires. Earrings are polished with a natural wax to preserve the deep golden color. All Nettie's jewelry is made from reclaimed and nickel free metals. Hand made in Brooklyn, New York.

  • Inspired by sun, sand and surf, Nettie's designs are organic, cast from reclaimed brass or bronze and created to age beautifully with every wear.  Nettie, who spent her childhood in Martha's Vineyard hanging around her artist dad's studio, started her creative career in writing enrolling at Hampshire College for Studio Art and Writing. Dropping out part way into her degree, she continued her creative education flitting around the world from mexico for ceramics and painting, to Italy for frescos and finally to New York. After being inspired by local jeweller and sculptor Jill Platner, Nettie returned to Martha's Vineyard and started her own collection.
