These handmade, limited edition pearl necklaces combine the grit and grace of the ocean they were formed from.

About the gemstone

Freshwater baroque pearls are beloved for their gloriously irregular, non-spherical shapes and varying orient (the shimmering iridescence that appears to coat each pearl) and luster. Like all pearls, freshwater baroque pearls are formed when an irritant becomes trapped in a mollusk. The mollusk secretes a fluid, called nacre, which coats the irritant layer upon layer until a pearl is formed.
MOHs Hardness: 2.5
Origins: Freshwater farms across Asia
CareKeep freshwater baroque pearls away from chemicals. Contact with cosmetics, oils, acids, etc., can discolor or ruin the texture of pearls. To clean, use warm water with mild soap. Do not use an ultrasonic or steam cleaner.
Strands of pearls should not be washed.  They should be wiped down with a soft clean cloth before storing.  Wetting the silk can cause stretching. Strands of pearls should not be washed. They should be wiped down with a soft clean cloth before storing. Wetting the silk can cause stretching.

The Story of Ruthie B.

An homage to Hannah's childhood and the nostalgia of her fishing home, this collection comprises gritty nautical-inspired pieces. The collection is named after Hannah's father's fishing vessel, the Ruthie B, which was named after Hannah's mother. Ruthie B. celebrates the mystery and natural peculiarity of the ocean that painted the artist’s childhood. In their weathered island home, Hannah and her six siblings learned how to entertain themselves amidst the chaos that comes with such a large family. The dingy fishing paraphernalia that littered their backyard was a playground of inspiration: raw snapshots of beauty against the clean backdrop of their hometown of Nantucket. These familiar moments inspired her to create beauty of her own. Shop the full Ruthie B. Collection
