About

Norton + Hodges is a Charleston-based company specializing in couture accessories.  Founder, Suzette Bussey, came to Charleston, South Carolina for college and never left. She met her husband, Ben, there. On their honeymoon, they discovered a shared love for Africa and Suzette was inspired to create a line of one-of-a-kind couture accessories that married the style and spirit of the South with the majestic wilds of Africa. From handbags and jewelry to her newest line of fur collars and torques, each piece in the Norton + Hodges collection is designed to inspire her clients to live boldly and feel beautiful.

In 2018, Norton + Hodges launched its new collection of luxurious feather-trimmed fur collars and torques. Each collar is handcrafted so no two are the same and are wearable pieces of art.

Norton + Hodges ethically sources its hides from family farms in Texas, South Africa and Namibia that are committed to conservation.  The collars and torques are proudly manufactured by a team of artisans in Savannah, Georgia.  Handbags and jewelry are manufactured in the Southeast United States and continental Africa.
