JJ Jewelry 2

When Jennifer J. Matchett couldn’t find a pair of tortoiseshell earrings that suited her, Matchett first designed some for herself. Then launched a modern, eco-chic jewelry line.

The designer: Matchett, originally from Maine, grew up in south Florida and graduated with an art history degree from Santa Fe College. She started making earrings using acetate jewelry she found in a second-hand store and sold them on Etsy. Last May, she started her jewelry collection.

The company: Atlanta-based Machete creates a line of eco-conscious jewelry, including super-lightweight earrings, cuffs and bracelets made of cellulose acetate, a natural and renewable material, imported from Italy.

What’s popular: Clare and Margot earrings ($38 to $58) in all colors.

Other favorites: Grande flat hoops ($78).

Big break: Profile and feature in Vogue in 2017.

What’s next: A new line of rings and earrings.

Where to buy: Shopmachete.com. In Atlanta, at Coco + Misha in Ponce City Market (cocoandmischa.com). Her studio in Marietta will open late this summer
