A background in fine art, including a degree in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design and time spent in galleries, informs Wing Yau's collection of unique, gestural designs that break from the traditional forms of jewelry. An emphasis on shape and color have become WWAKE signatures, with unexpected gemstone combinations and sensuous curves making each piece feel different, yet totally natural on the body. Whether worn alone or artfully arranged into collages of precious stones and metals, WWAKE designs defy convention and stake a claim for a new, modern way to dress.
