WXYZ Jewelry Launches

Heavy metal remix

wxyz jewelry!

When it comes to music, the hook should be easy enough to draw you in but catchy enough to keep you coming back (we’re looking at you, Carly Rae).

Strike a chord with WXYZ Jewelry, a new line from Brooklyn designer Laura Wass.

Like most rock stars, Wass earned her chops as backup (she designed for Philip Crangi, Giles & Brother, and industrial scale manufacturer Metal Dynamics) before going solo. She now creates each piece by hand with humor in the details.

Wass stacks tri-beads (the ones you strung onto pipe cleaners as a child) cast in gunmetal, silver, and gold on chains and bracelets; woven DNA bands appear as complex as the real deal (pair one with black rubber and gold tube bangles). We especially dig her twist on a diamond ring: a silver, gemless profile lined with chartreuse resin.

It’s a chart topper.

Available at wxyzjewelry.com, $50-$1,500.
