Noteworthy: Verameat

 


(Verameat ‘Anchor’ Necklace, $70 | Verameat ‘Got Heart’ Ring, $44)

Each piece of VERAMEAT jewelry mirrors a self-sufficient life form with a sculptural presence. Hand-crafted in New York City from such fine materials as ecologically sound recycled silver and pure 14k gold, VERAMEAT designs are artfully refined contemporary heirlooms to inspire your own individual flair.

VERAMEAT is Vera Balyura, a teller of winding tales in search of the extraordinary. Born in Ukraine, she recalls woodcarving with her grandfather, horseback riding in Utah & moving to New York to be a high fashion model all before the age of 14. Each design reflects a personal (yet universal) inspiration—from traveling the world, making music, maritime ny sagas, botanical structures of light, futuristic visions of rogue spacemen in beer, and before history.

VERAMEAT’s patron ensemble includes Amy Sedaris, Miranda July, Michel Gondry, Kyp Malone, and Tilda Swinton, among other great minds. VERAMEAT has been interviewed by NYLON and featured in the People We Like section of themorningnews.org. Most recently Khloe Kardashian chose VERAMEAT’S silver Bad Ass Knuckle Duster three-finger ring as her Hall of Style Shopflick Pick.

New Find: St. Kilda Jewelry

St. Kilda Jewelry was founded in 2004 by designer Nora Kogan. In the Park Slope, Brooklyn, store you can see the largest assortment of St. Kilda pieces, with new designs appearing in the cases regularly. Located in the former Conservation Plumbing storefront, their Fifth Avenue store also doubles as a studio.

All of St. Kilda jewelry is made locally. They exclusively use recycled metals and conflict-free stones in all of their designs. St. Kilda strives to be authentic and they do this by maintaining close relationships with everyone involved in producing the St. Kilda line. Every piece is finished with great detail in the studio and they hope that the spirit and intent infused in each piece is passed onto the wearer.

My favorite pieces are the dainty, snake rings set with diamonds. Take a look for yourself at StKildaJewelry.com.
