Look smart with jewelry that fuses fashion and science — only at HMNS!

Some of you might not know that some of the Museum’s most spectacular specimens are located downstairs in the Museum Store. We’ve long been a go-to destination for fabulous jewelry by the likes of Alexis Bittar and Houston’s own Rebecca Lankford, along with other  designers you can’t find anywhere else, like Hyla Dewitt and Assad Mounser.

Now, we’re welcoming a new designer that perfectly fuses fashion and science: Somerville, Massachusetts-based brand Nervous System.

Nervous System jewelry fuses fashion and science

Nervous System approaches jewelry design with a scientific mindset. Using generative design methods — including mathematical algorithms — founders (and MIT-grads) Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg create jewelry inspired by natural forms and processes occurring in the world around us. From aggregations of coral to cell cycles to the growth patterns of algae, Nervous System crafts its designs by developing systems that create distinct forms — every one unique.

Our always impeccably styled buyer, Jen, first heard of Nervous System a number of years ago when its designs were featured in the blog Design Sponge. After the Museum Store was expanded and Jen was reintroduced at a convention this August, she reached out and secured the line for HMNS. The Museum Store is now (at the time of publishing) the only place in Houston to carry these innovative designs.

Come see for yourself! One hundred percent of proceeds from the Museum Store support HMNS and its programming.

  1. Several years ago we bought an amythist (sp) ring at the gift shop for about $13 or $14, It was a large oval stone, about 1-1/2 inches high, with rhinestones encircling it. We would like to get another one. Is there an online store, or a phone number to call? We are elderly and not able to get to town to the museum. We would greatly appreciate any information you can give. Our phone number is 281-371 2012 or 281 814-5555. Thank you.
