Williamsburg will soon be home to a new jewelry shop, albeit a pop-up one. “Brooklyn jeweler Mia Hebib conceived the idea for a different kind of pop-up: an exhibit of avant-garde necklaces, earrings, and pins she calls art-jewelry,” says The Cut of the brains behind this temporary boutique. The wares Hebib will be offering at the shop, called ‘Salon: Inventive Art-Jewelry Exhibit in an Inventible Space’ on Williamsburg’s Metropolitan Ave. aren’t solely her own. In fact, she’s included sculptural and avant garde works from six other Brooklyn-based artists and designers. A first look at these stellar specimens, which she calls “art-jewelry,” is available here.
The one-of-a-kind pieces evoke elements from the work of iconic artists like Alexander Calder and Louise Bourgeois. And they’re priced accordingly – you’d be hard pressed to find something under $100 (although one pair of chandelier earrings are under the three-digit mark). But, like beauty, the true value of wearable art is in the eye of the wearer.
