Love Nene's Story

Hi! My name is Nikki, but my nieces and nephews have been calling me Nene since they were little and it has stuck. As a designer and design director for large companies in the accessories field for over 15 years I decided I wanted to venture out on my own in the scary world of small business. I began experimenting with cement after buying an inspirational item while shopping in London. After moving to Massachusetts and setting up shop in my garage, I launched Love Nene and started selling at markets in the summer of 2022.

All Love Nene Items are hand poured into silicone molds in my garage studio. Pigments are mixed into small batches of dry cement by color. The final look of each piece comes from the techniques I use when pouring the cement.

How to care for your items

All Love Nene products are made of cement but that unfortunately does not make them indestructible. They can break if you drop them on a hard surface or chip if they are hit with another hard surface.

Avoid using oils, acids or products that can stain around your item, especially if you are buying a piece that is not sealed. Cement is porous and will stain.

To clean your item you can wipe with a soft cloth and water.
