Don’t know about yours, but our relatives are best appreciated at a safe distance.
But it’s a family affair at The Crangi Family Project, a new Meatpacking District jewelry boutique.
Philip Crangi (in all his lumberjack-chic glory) designed and built the jewel box of a shop. Black pressed-tin ceilings, dark velvet walls, and ribbon trim were done by hand. Custom shelving displays his namesake line — designed with sister and biz partner Courtney — and Giles & Brother costume collection. Dad’s an artist who will showcase sculptures. Sister-in-law Sheri manages the tiny space.
A smattering of vintage books and home items that inspire their work (Bauhaus, botanicals, African prints) are mixed in with bold, braided pieces; a drawer of delicate charm necklaces; and, if the mood strikes, special baubles made for runway shows.
You know, it’s all relative.
The Crangi Family Project, 9 Ninth Avenue, between Little West 12th and 13th Streets (212-929-0858).
