Nettie Kent Gates Cuff

by: Nettie Kent

  • Stand aside all others, this is officially our top favourite cuff. Playing off the design of Nettie's best selling compass collection, we predict the Gates Cuff becoming an instant classic. From it's warm gold patina to it's unique design, we love how it can be worn low or high on the arm, alone or stacked with a complementing piece.

  • Carved from wax and cast in nickel free reclaimed brass. One size adjustable. Please be aware that all brass and bronze will tarnish from environmental exposure and human touch. Nettie treats the brass and bronze with a natural wax that has added gold powder, this wax and finish slows down the tarnish. To help maintain your brass keep the jewellery dry and don't wear swimming, though Nettie wears her's in the ocean and loves the rich patina that the metals develop! 

  • 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.
