What is an antique lamp? I personally like the generalized definition wich states that it is a lamp wich is from a bygone area. This places the term outside the legal arena and into a subjective personal usage wich is where we commonly incur the term…

I consider this a safe space, so I’ll admit here that it’s a little ridiculous, but I feel about bracelets how Carrie Bradshaw felt about shoes. So when I saw my favorite silhouette turned into a ring at Catbird, I suggested — first to them and later to Bittersweets NY— that it would make a wonderful bracelet. Luckily, no one thought I was crazy (or at least they didn’t say so directly), and Robin agreed to give it a go. I’m completely obsessed with the result and plan to live on a strict budget for the next few weeks, if that’s what it takes to advertise my kitty love to the world.

Robin Adams founded Bittersweets NY in 2002. After art school, Robin felt like her only marketable skill was welding, so she looked in the phone book for foundries. Robin turned to making jewelry when she realized that living in New York City wasn’t conducive to the large-scale sculptures that she loved. Instead, she decided to make tiny wearable sculptures. Robin credits her foundry experience with giving her the stamina she needed to sit at a jewelry bench all day. — Amy Azzarito
