Mod North began as a creative outlet/adventure in making signature desktop clocks. This small business naturally expanded into other items with wall clocks, garlands and wall hangings. Each made-to-order item is unique, one of a kind, exclusive home décor all made by Jessica Cortés with premium agate and quartz stones sourced from Brazil in her home studio in Oconomowoc, WI.

Agate is a variety of chalcedony, which is a type of microcrystalline quartz. It is formed within volcanic rock cavities, where it slowly crystallizes over time. The intricate patterns and bands found in agate are a result of the different minerals that seep into the rock during its formation. These minerals create the unique colors and textures that make agate so visually appealing.
My little shop has never strayed far from its humble beginnings and original vision, even as I grow towards new successes. I am proud of my partnerships with Anthropologie and Uncommon Goods, who stock my Agate Clocks. I also support many fellow small businesses across the US with boutiques that carry my items. I am proud of the work I do and pour a lot of love into each and every piece.
All of the art style décor items in my shop begin with my own original design ideas and end with careful handcrafting. I have worked hard over the last eight years and maintain a fabulous standing with my customers. They value my originality, craftsmanship, and loyalty to wonderful design & execution.
Each agate clock from the Mod North & Co. collection offers a unique, modern aesthetic.

Furthermore, ensuring a contemporary look, top-quality Seiko mechanisms and brass/gold accents are added. The resulting one-of-a-kind clock is a true modern heirloom piece.
