Hannah Blount has been creating jewelry since she was a young child.

The daughter of a fisherman and a seamstress, Hannah was raised in the tradition of hand skills, hard work, and dedication. In their weathered island home, she 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: gritty snapshots of beauty against the clean backdrop of their hometown of Nantucket. These familiar moments inspired her to create beauty of her own.

Over the following years she has created a body of work that encompasses an organic and refined aesthetic. 

She is currently working out of her studio in New York, and selling her jewelry in various boutiques and galleries across the country.
