Rebekah Harris is the owner of Silverella, a nautical themed jewelry company based in Montauk. I’m not even much of a jewelry guy and I want to get my hands on her works of art. Really unique stuff. And she’s got great stories about her haphazard hometown and the wilds of the New York diamond district.
In this episode:
What really sells a piece of jewelry more so than the actual gems and materials in it.
How she fell into the jewelry business
Stories of the New York diamond district
How a child kidnapped by pirates became George Washington’s right hand man
The super ironic name of her hometown
Why she moved her studio from NYC to Montauk
