Wwake

With a background in sculpture and a passion for conceptual art and crafts, Canadian designer Wing Yau unintentionally fell into jewellery design. Whilst experimenting and making small gestural sculptures, Wing realised they could be refined and naturally translated into jewellery. WWAKE was established in 2011. Each WWAKE item is handmade and is a combination of unexpected shapes and stone settings which complement and relate to one another. The metal work often retains the artist’s fingerprints; a subtle detail which upholds the brand values of craftsmanship. With a focus on simplicity and the materials she is working with, Wing likes to experiment with texture, movement and flow and often produces lots of samples from clay as a starting point to the design process. To add an element of play to the designs, all WWAKE pieces are designed to be stacked together yet are individually striking. “My fine jewellery line is like a set of puzzle pieces and I like the idea of customers creating their own patterns by pairing these rings to their own taste” - Wing Yau The WWAKE collection is now available in store and online at Couverture.
