While working on her Ph.D. in neurobiology at Harvard, Jane Ko wasn't able to find student-budget jewelry. Instead of lamenting her unyielding search, she started her own line: Linea Nervenkitt.
Now she does Linea Nervenkitt full time, and pieces are sold in Anthropologie stores nationwide. She has a number of different collections: Rock Rings, which are hard-carved semi-precious gemstone cocktail rings, Linea Lux, her fine gold jewelry line, Seafoam, inspired by the Italian Riviera, and Sweet Languor, which combines semiprecious stones and gold chains.
Making jewelry may be no neurobiology, but there's nothing wrong with succeeding at both!
Linea Nervenkitt Jewelry is also available at LineaNY.com, and runs $36-$780.
