Nettie Kent Ionian Neckalce

by: Nettie Kent

  • Named after the Ionian sea, this new Nettie design is just as cool and inviting. Each necklace is truly a unique piece and will vary slightly in the colors in the crushed tourmaline.  Jet and grey shades mix in this eye catching piece contrasting against the polished brass setting.

  • The tourmaline is crushed and inlayed in a solid brass triangle, strung on an 18 inch brass chain and secured with a signature S hook. Finally it's polished with a natural wax to preserve the deep golden colour. 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.
