WWAKE


Wing Yau is a Vancouver-born, New-York based designer. Hailing from a background in Sculpture at Rhode Island School of Design and a childhood of travel throughout the Pacific and South America, her passions lie somewhere between art and anthropology.

After assisting art galleries and artists, Wing fell into design as a way to merge art with the intimacy of jewelry. In 2013, she launched her delicate opal fine jewelry line, which quickly evolved in its use of materials and has since developed into the full line of fine jewellery that it is today. 

Wing is a member of the Jewelry Industry Summit, Ethical Metalsmiths, Fairmined Gold Licensees, and runner-up in the 2017 CFDA x Lexus Fashion Initiative for sustainable design. She has garnered a cult following from celebrities such as Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson, Solange, and Zoe Kravitz.
