It’s Sunday and we are handing out the report card! We have chosen our designer and instagram account to follow. Designer Fay Andrada has a grounded authenticity that is admirable in jewelers. She has refined her personal history and skills into a physical representation through her jewelry. Her experiences as the daughter of an architect ring true, as does her training in graphic design. Each design is made in brass, sterling, or 14K. They are modern sculpture with an element of earth, water, wind, and fire thrown in the mix. There is a human aspect to her work, a tiny imperfection, but also a minimal perfect beauty, as well. Although this style has become more sought after recently and reiterated, she has been doing such pieces for years. Her brand was founded in Brooklyn in 2010. She has a studio in Greenpoint, in which one can make an appointment to see her work in person.
We gravitate in the world of instagram to those artists who have the real goods, because jewelry is a personal process. Sunday #jewelryreportcard is about rewarding those artist and accounts because they are really great, and in many cases deserve way more followers. I hope by doing these Sunday reports we point out some great accounts that inspire the reader, beyond the superficial. Plus, they of course, we hope, will make your last day of the weekend a bit brighter! Her work has been seen in Vogue, Refinery 29, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, and more. Fay has some lust worthy pieces, also the imagery and romance of her instagram feed is not lost on us. If one scrolls down her feed well into a years or so ago or beyond, one can see how marvelously she styles the bracelets stacked to infinity and the consistency of the photography. There is a poetic beauty to the feed.
Jewelry we want so badly:
