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.
The Thread Affair sent over a gorgeous royal blue necklace and I found it added the perfect dose of colour to my neutral toned outfit. The Lafayette 148 jacket has the most softest texture I’ve ever experienced! Made of lambskin suede, pure heaven to the fingertips.
When I first read about Ammara in InStyle Magazine’s Jan 2012 issue I had to check them out. See below:
Who doesn’t love a cute tennis/ballerina inspired ensemble? Ammara debuts with a collection of modern, sophisticated clothes for real women: Poised, confident, ageless. Designed by Ammara Yaqub to feel effortless, these clothes are fashionable and will endure in your wardrobe for years to come. I paired Ammara’s pony sweater with ankle boots instead of heels for a more casual look.
