Non Jewelry focuses on making bold pieces that do not compromise comfort for design. The collection is handmade and finished by Natalie Nicholson in her upstate studio. Striving to create a healthy studio environment, she uses recycled materials whenever possible, and opts out of using traditional jewelry industry chemicals. Production is limited to guarantee that pieces are consciously consumed, and to minimize excess material waste.
