Get Swept Away With Winden Jewelry

Winden Jewelry

Winden Jewelry is off the chain. Greenpoint based designer Rebecca Mapes crafts pieces with delicate but tongue-in-cheek enthusiasms. Punchy diamond lips and tiny little ear studs, babe and sis 90s throwback name plate necklaces give a carefree and off-beat vibe. (Prices range from $55-$1,199).

I personally love Winden’s undertone for nostalgia and humor. Not to mention, most of the jewelry is on the smaller scale, which is perfect for layering pieces or giving a hint of subtle flash. Continue reading

Deep Sea Creatures By Jess Switaj

Featured Valentine’s Market Vendor Jess Switaj is inspired by her love of creatures from the depths of the seas.

I’ve drawn a good deal of the inspiration for my designs from the ocean and the creatures that live in it. There are so many amazing and beautiful things that live in the sea! They are incredible in their variety, the sheer numbers of them that there are, and particularly in their exquisite colorations. Possibly the only thing as breathtaking as the denizens of the deep is the cosmos. A lot of my work is very graphic and literal (printed images) but for my pieces which are not, I draw a lot of inspiration from the color patterns and combinations that these animals are all fitted with by nature.
