Nettie Kent True North Ring

by: Nettie Kent

  • Combining Nettie's signature compass design with raw black tourmaline, this knuckle duster will knock the socks of all others. The hard edged stone combined with the smooth polished brass is a combination you'll never want to take off.  

  • Black tourmaline set into polished brass. Brass is treated with a natural wax to preserve finish. Keep dry. 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.
