Inspired by the tradition of art breaking with convention, WWAKE offers a new perspective on heirloom jewelry. With a thoughtful balance of tension & scale, WWAKE re-contextualizes jewelry into unexpected arrangements and modern silhouettes. Designer Wing Yau is returning to her roots in sculpture with the launch of Closer by WWAKE, a sterling silver sister brand that features expressive statement jewelry. By manipulating metal into unexpected forms, Closer by WWAKE highlights the allure of simple materials and encourages one to explore through touch. Each piece is not cast, but is instead artistically formed and folded by hand from flat silver sheets. All pieces are constructed in New York in small, made-to-order, batches using recycled sterling silver.
