New In: WWAKE

New In: WWAKE


We are thrilled to announce ætla as a new stockist of WWAKE jewellery.
If you don't know of WWAKE, they are a New York based fine jewellery brand which is women run, design driven and created with sustainably mined materials. WWAKE place a huge focus on transparency within their production chain and are best known for their distinctive iridescent opal scattered jewellery collections.

Meet WWAKE's Founder
Wing Yau is a New York-based designer born in the Pacific Northwest. Hailing from a background in sculpture at Rhode Island School of Design, she assisted NYC artists and galleries before falling into design. Yau developed WWAKE in 2012 with the intention of merging art with the intimacy of jewellery. WWAKE is ever-experimenting with the boundaries of traditional jewellery.
Since its launch, WWAKE has been recognized by publications such as The New York Times, Vogue, W Magazine, and Elle, to name a few, and has been worn by celebrities such as Rihanna, Zoe Kravitz, Solange, and Emma Watson.



WWAKE's ethos is focused on the belief that their jewellery is a connection to the earth, and every hand in between. Their materials are sourced as sustainably as they possibly can, focusing on recycled materials to reduce their role in today's commercial mining practices, and also on fair trade materials that provide positive impact to responsible mining communities from around the globe. All WWAKE jewellery is then crafted in New York before it finds its home with you.  Their jewellery strives to support an entire chain of people, with careful sourcing, planning, and learning.
