Natalie Reed ’13 of Natalie Reed Fine Jewelry
As a child, Natalie spent afternoons beach combing and adventuring on Vinalhaven’s rocky coast, collecting sea glass, unusual rocks, and shells. She has always had a deep love for the ocean; its power and mystery always drawing her back. At MECA she quickly discovered she could combine her two passions: jewelry and the ocean. Working her way through college doing construction and lobstering, Natalie graduated in 2013. She visits the beach and her home island as much as possible which always inspires ideas for new designs, pushing her in new directions. Natalie also enjoys snowboarding, gardening and of course visiting the ocean whenever possible.
