Brooklyn-based jewelry fashionista and certified bad ass, Vera Balyura (better known by her moniker, VeraMeat) rocks. She creates lovely, inventive, and wildly imaginative art for your fingers, neck, and ears.
Vera has made me some beautiful treasures since the fateful day we met at a sweet little boutique in Williamsburg, Bklyn called CatBird, one of the many shops where her jewels are sold. She just made me this little number [the knuckle duster in bold] with my initials engraved in typewriter font (!!!). Bang!
