Verameat

 VeraMeat, a little boutique I strolled into on a Sunday in Williamsburg, offers some of the most distinctive and beautiful jewellery I have ever seen. Its designer, Ukraine-born Vera Balyura, has created a range apparently inspired by (among other things) travel, maritime sagas and anatomical structures. I think it’s the latter I love the most – the brain and pelvis stand out as particularly great pendants, and I like things that are supposed to be ugly.

 VeraMeat sprung out of the East Village and now has shops across the US but the pieces, crafted from silver and gold, are still made in New York.

The prices are pretty reasonable, although while admiring everything in the shop I struggled to part with my cash (probably because the dollars just made it sound like loads of money). They range from $48 for some rings and $68 for some necklaces to hundreds – in some cases thousands – for the top pieces. I think I’ll have to get something online soon.
