Martine Ali's studio is based out of Brooklyn, NYC, where she and her team design each new collection of her eponymous brand's modular silver jewelry. With a focus on androgynous and unisex pieces, Martine Ali takes inspiration from the hip-hop and grunge cultures of the 90s and early 2000s.
The styling potential of each piece is remarkable - combine two bracelets into a choker, connect two keychains to form a wallet chain, add a keychain to a choker to turn it into a necklace... be creative! With so many different ways to modify, style, and wear each piece; the more you have, the greater your options. The simplified materials and minimalist designs allow you to style things precisely to your tastes, every time.
Every piece of Martine Ali jewelry is assembled at the Brooklyn workshop, and is made from genuine .925 Sterling silver. Over time, like any sterling, the metal will tarnish and patina, and can be cleaned and shined with a jewelry polishing rag.
The Hardware Drop Keychain features a rounded clip at the top to connect to your belt loops, with a sterling chain and "MA" embossed key ring. The ring can be opened by squeezing the sides and pulling down on the ring, disconnecting the body from the top and allowing you to modify whatever you've got on there.
The Hardware Flat Link choker is a heavy chain necklace that closes up with the Hardware Drop Keychain. Serving as an excellent example of how Martine Ali's pieces can be easily modified and recontextualized by pairing them with one another or wearing them in a different place.
