Style Stalker: Nantucket Jewelry
Jessica Hicks was 16 years old when she started to craft and bead jewelry in her hometown of Worchester. Now, her Nantucket boutique called Posh houses a “pretty prolific” collection, says Hicks.
Her handmade metal designs recreate her island surroundings — unspoiled natural landscapes with shapes and patterns aplenty — and are as much a hit with the locals as for Hollywood celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Biel, and Halle Barry. The pieces cater to broad tastes, from frilly fleur-de-lis silver earrings to the popular oversized peace sign necklace. Additionally, she’s created an Autism collection, inspired by Hicks’s 7-year-old nephew diagnosed with the disorder when he was 2 years old, which features a puzzle piece design to spread Autism awareness.
Right now, Hicks is busy finishing up her newest holiday quote necklaces, which will be available the week after Thanksgiving.
