Sirens of the Sea

Thursday, October 20, 2011
Jewelry designer Nettie Kent was a Mermaid in another life. Born on Martha's Vineyard to an artist and a librarian, she was called to the art of the sea from an early age. Her bohemian upbringing and addiction to the ocean is evident in her organic jewelry creations. After getting a degree in fine arts, and studying painting in Mexico and Italy, Kent moved to New York and found herself wanting to work outside the two-dimensional. Although she had no formal training, she experimented in metal smithing and sculpture. In 2008, her line was born. Her influence in organics is obvious. Her jewelry appears to be crafted by the sea - bronze necklaces in the shape of coral, silver arrows that are washed by the tide. Here are some of my favorites from a range of collections.
