About the designer

Jeenie Lim is a New York City based jewelry designer. While growing up, she was strongly influenced by her mother who was a professional florist and her grandfather who was a renowned abstract painter.

Jeenie majored in oriental painting in college where she grew her interest in design using nature as inspiration. Her passion in design led her to attend Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. After graduation from FIT, she worked for the leading jewelry company MirIam Haskell for 5 years as a fashion jewelry designer.

Most recently she earned her master’s degree in Design Management at Pratt Institute in New York.

In August 2010, She launched her own fine jewelry line, vasa new york. vasa new york has been featured in various magazines including Cosmopolitan,Lucky and the Sport Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

Jeenie’s style has been described as wearable jewelry with a unique approach. vasa new york pieces combine an organic sense of beauty with impeccable craftsmanship.

Components of jewelry design have had a presence throughout my life (though I wasn’t always aware of it!). As a child, I was obsessed with rocks and small objects with unique, intricate shapes, colors and textures.

After years of applying my undergraduate journalism degree and finding a love for metalsmithing – I pursued a degree in jewelry design, with a studio focus.

Employing my previous work experience with my formal training, I launched my first collection of fine jewelry in May 2017. With an entrepreneurial spirit and desire to create, I’m driven by the lasting curiosity, wonderment and the tangible fantasy of jewelry.

I strive to use responsibly sourced materials in every piece, from conflict-free diamonds, precious & semi-precious gemstones to recycled golds & silver. Each piece is handcrafted in NYC.

Founded in 2011, AKMD developed out of a thirteen-year friendship and design collaboration between Ayush Kasliwal and Mike Dreeben.

The two met in Jaipur, India in 1998: Dreeben had recently completed an MFA in sculpture at the University of Chicago and was working on a Fulbright grant, studying vernacular woodworking; Kasliwal had just completed study at the prestigious National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad, with a degree in furniture design. What they found was a mutual interest in fine craft practices and how these could inform contemporary design. This has become a driving concept behind the AKMD collection.

Both Kasliwal and Dreeben are makers and their design approach begins with a deep understanding of the inherent characteristics of material and of production method — allowing process to drive design, rather than the other way around. Their work is pragmatic and honest: the materials are presented straightforwardly, as are the mechanical connections that bind the pieces together. Their furniture is notably free of veneer and plastics, that don’t provide the kind durability that one can expect from solid wood, cast metal, or saddle leather And although everything they offer is meticulously crafted, their pieces are comfortable and unfussy — pieces that you can live with, that will respond positively to use and age by developing a patina that reflects their history in one’s home.

K/LLER COLLECTION is based in Brooklyn and run by co-founder Katie deGuzman. Katie graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York City in 2002, where she studied furniture design. K/LLER COLLECTION revolves around an interest in natural forms, architecture, alchemy, androgyny, and juxtaposition. Eolithic materials—like horn, distressed leather, crystals, porcupine quills, cactus, and feathers—fuse deconstruction and sculpture, decay and renewal, androgyny and femininity, sophistication, and bohemia. Every piece of K/LLER jewelry is hand-assembled and packaged in Brooklyn. All materials are responsibly sourced in the USA. In October 2014, K/LLER was the grand prize winner of the CFDA/Lexus Eco-Fashion Challenge, and in October 2015, K/LLER was announced as one of the ten finalists for the 2015-2017 CFDA + Lexus Fashion*Initiative. Additionally, K/LLER was one of the 10 brands in the 2016-2018 CFDA {Fashion Incubator} business development program.

numbskullduggery is a collection of ceramic wares made by British artist and maker Polly Yates, currently living and working in Chicago.

Her main focus is in hand-building vessels which are both sculptural and functional.

She employs the simplest methods of coiling and pinching to create forms which she then repeats, observing what changes and what remains constant.

Museum Mile Art draws from experiences built over the years as an artist. I have traveled globally throughout my life, and those cultural and environmental experiences inspire my designs.

Ever curious about the world around her, Page Sargisson seeks out objects whose texture, shape and history inspire her. With her ability to see beauty where others might not, Page repurposes and transforms these found objects into uniquely textured, handcrafted jewelry, and in doing so, helps bring out the artist in those who wear these special creations.

Page grew up working in her grandfather’s woodworking studio and learned to carve, sand and make dovetail joints with him – after graduating from Brown and working a corporate job, she took a wax carving class that brought her back to my childhood passion of creating and carving. Fifteen years later, she sells at small boutiques around the US, and Barney’s, Ron Herman and Isetan in Japan. She designs jewelry for people like her, jewelry that can transition from dropping off the kids at school in the morning to work and dinner out at night.

Page’s pieces are all handmade here in NYC using recycled metals. Her work has a distinct look since she transfers textures from old letterpress blocks, textiles and woodblocks – this seems to attract a clientele who like to “collect” her pieces.

In a world where so much is mass produced and 3D printed, the “brushstrokes” of her carvings allow the end customer to connect to the artist and imagine the work that went into creating each piece.
