Knotted Herkimer Ruthie B. Necklace

A knotted strand of fawn-hued silk threads together shards of Herkimer diamonds, creating a beautiful streak of glistening levity. This handmade, one-of-a-kind quartz necklace marries the delicacy of Herkimer quartz crystals with the strength of the sea with the piece's 14k fish hook clasp: this unique combination marries the natural elements in harmony.

Herkimer "diamonds" are raw quartz crystals mined exclusively in Herkimer County, NY. Believed to be nearly 500 million years old, each stone has naturally formed with eighteen facets, six sides, and two points (double terminated). While they are not actually diamonds, they earned this nickname for their diamond-like shapes. Each is uncut and unique.

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
