Ms. Fix It

This necklace is not just a pretty face. It's got skills. Like tuning up your bike, or fixing those miniature screws in your eyeglasses. When strung from your neck, it's an elegant, mixed-metal design, but when you slide off the chevron sections, it becomes a sturdy set of tools. The two-piece option includes a bottle opener, box opener and large Phillips and flathead screwdrivers (aka the essentials). The five-piece set includes large and micro Phillips and flathead screwdrivers, bottle opener, box opener, and four different hex keys.

Gold-plated pieces are interspersed between the durable stainless steel tools, which won't rust or chip, even on your toughest fixes. Equal parts functional and stunning, it makes a great gift for loved ones who like to get things done on their terms. Designed by Nate Barr. Handmade in Portland, Maine.

“I like to think of myself as both an engineer and an artist.”

Nate Barr is an engineer and an artist, two professions that feel polar, but together are something magical. Earlier in his career, Nate worked as a mechanical engineer at a product design firm. But he realized what he really wanted to do was create something beautiful, original, and tactile. When his wife, Bryn, asked him to make a set of tools that was attractive and portable, he found an excellent opportunity to blend both sides of his brain. The Tulry Utlity Necklace is a stunning piece whose shimmering, chevron sections slide off to act as portable tools. "A lot of everyday products are designed with a male-centric audience in mind," Nate says. It's his mission to change this by creating functional designs that aren't geared exclusively toward men. He also advocates for sourcing and creating items in the US, as well as paying his employees a living wage. It's his hope that he might inspire others to keep their practices local and fair. Nate lives and creates in Portland, Maine.
