These cuffs are from fellow Parsons student Jake Stein’s own line BoyNYC.
I am absolutely in love with the silver dinosaur spine cuff. Although they are definitely designed with an edge and with attitude, they also have this boyish quality and charm to them, which is the point of the name I assume?
The bird claws remind me of the claw necklaces David&Martin got hype for some years back.
It is always amazing to see people who are still in school just burst with creativity and ambition, and unleash it and get shit done!
I asked Jake about his jewelry over FB chat.
On making cuff bracelets:
“I like cuff jewelry in particular because I am lazy with jewelry, especially in NYC not everyone has time to accessorize in the mornings. I think of cuffs like jewelry tattoos . I like to put something on and leave it on. I also like my metal heavy, it tones the arms;)”
