The Shield She Shared by Niett Metals


The Details

Exclusively available for “Say it with Power,” The Shield She Shared was inspired by “Say it with Power’s” curatorial mission statement. A shield pendant made from recycled 10kt and 14kt yellow gold rests on an 18-inch solid 14kt Italian gold chain.

The Shield She Shared celebrates the Lorraine Hansberry that is widely known to the world; the first black female author of a Broadway play, youngest American to win a New York Critics’ Circle award, and her shining legacy of activism and civil rights.

Handmade in Mississippi by Niett Metals.

The Artist

Niett Metals is a collection of wearable odes to women of the past and present. Intended to be a steady reminder of the wearer’s own inner-power, vested by the knowledge of women’s resilience. Each piece is designed and made by hand in Mississippi using sustainable methods and materials. Mementos of the past as powers for the present.

Nicole Harlow is the goldsmith and designer behind Niett Metals. Raised in Dallas, Texas, her most liberating memories come from seasons spent in the mountains and deserts of New Mexico, to which she attributes much of her design influence and regard for the artisan process. She now lives with a gin-distiller, a pit bull, and a cat in Taylor, Mississippi, down the street from Niett Metal's studio and showroom.
