Founded in New York City, YE jewelry is made by Lydia Yap, a Singaporean and graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology. Her unisex designs are for anyone who appreciates the clean, simple forms of minimalism, and void of any gendered association. To make jewelry that fits everyone, each design including necklaces and earrings is made in sized options. Lydia uses both traditional hand carving and 3D printing to create sterling silver pieces which are cast by the lost-wax process and then hand finished.
