Designer Blaque Reily of Portmanteau views jewelry as an artifact passing through time and across lives. Her designs focus on lines and asymmetry and are meant to challenge a sense of propriety. Blaque creates her pieces in limited runs in her Nashville studio using recycled, repurposed and conflict-free materials.
"I’ve gotten to know Blaque a little bit this past year, and think she has such a sweet spirit. She’s smart and kind and her jewelry reflects that. She’s always pushing herself forward and trying new things, unafraid of taking risks—a truly inspiring lady."
