“I have been in the design world for 25 years and Perri was the first person that I could shoot design ideas off for hours on end,” says Mack. “Both of our designs come from the earth and sea, and we both believe in quality high-end craftsmanship from start to finish.” Ricci is founder of the uberpopular jewelry line Puka Perri, a luxe mix of puka shells, gold and Tahitian pearls, while Mack has her own eponymous line of leather handbags, footwear and belts, along with a successful wellness business, Project You Be Well. Together the two artists combined their talents to create their new Golden Herringbone Jewelry Collection by Neely Mack x Puka Perri, a line of herringbone leather chokers with 14K gold and Tahitian pearl accents that manage to be both earthy and upscale at once.
