WWAKE

WWAKE's collection of stunning yet delicate jewelry is inspired by the tradition of art breaking with convention, offering a new perspective on heirloom jewelry that is distinguished by minimal forms and marked by meaningful detail.  WWAKE merges art with the intimacy of jewelry, using unexpected stone arrangements and geometric, contoured forms.  Designer Wing Yin Yau hails from the Pacific Northwest, with a background in sculpture from RISD.  Having also spend childhood years in Peru and Papua New Guinea, Wing was highly inspired by indigenous craft.  Both of these influences can clearly be seen in the collection, which spans from fine jewelry using opals, diamonds and 14k gold, to her Closer collection, which features sculptural bronze and brass mediums.
