Nettie Birch nbNg

nbNg makes fold-formed jewellery using aluminium, copper and sterling silver. The technique folds sheet metal and compresses and stretches them by hammering. Once opened, beautiful flowing organic shapes are formed.

The jewellery ranges from large, sculptural, statement pieces to more wearable pendants and earrings.
Aluminium is known for it’s lightness and malleability allowing large pieces to be made and worn comfortably. Copper pieces showcase this metals warmth and range of colours. The collection of silver & 18ct gold plated pieces add luxury to already popular designs

nbNg is the work of Nettie Birch. Nettie, a self-taught jeweller, works from her studio by the Thames in South East London. She sells her work predominately through museums & galleries and, in person at design fairs across the country.
