GAMIN NYC

Located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Gamin is a small studio focusing on culturally offbeat, urban designs. Intended to be worn by both men and women, pieces are rooted in the form and structure of Morccan Berber jewlery juxtaposed with the personality of the Parisian Gamin, as referenced in Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables. The gamin embodies joy despite everything, confidence in his own creating, and a smirking defiance of convention and authority.

Made entirely in NYC and primarily cast in sterling silver, each piece is designed as a whole, with consideration given to angles otherwise overlooked. Details in the form of inscriptions and design motifs give each item layers of cultural and literary meaning only apparent to the wearer.

These images were taken during the launch party that took place 05/21/15 at the Palmer Trading Company store front in SoHo.

View the entire collection now available at PTC here.
