Vera Vixeness specializes in art, jewelry and vintage clothes

⚡Jewelry:
All my jewelry is handmade in the USA using recycled and ethically sourced materials. Lost Wax Casting is the jewelry technique we most employ which is dying art form (due to technological advancements with C.A.D) and has been around for thousands of years, which affords our finished jewelry a one-of-a-kind, raw and true artisan look. The final product being a strong, and truly original hand crafted design----
a stark contrast to the mass produced jewelry which is so prominent nowadays. We make jewelry inspired by classic motif with an edgy twist. The jewelry comes in white brass, gold brass, silver and gold. Rings can be sized to your exact measurements. Most jewelry can be customized or engraved. Production time for a custom order is typically 2-4 weeks.

⚡ Painted Textiles:
You can have your leathers, suedes, woods, plastics, wax canvas and fabrics painted. Everything from journals, luggage tags, tote bags, wallets, holiday ornaments, caps, shoes, to key fobs. I can either recreate an existing image of your choosing or design a unique one to your specification. Production time is usually 2-4 weeks. DM to start a convo or email me at veravixeness [!at] gmail.com.

⚡ Vintage is sustainable and socially responsible so we welcome and encourage that

⚡Don't forget to "favorite" my shop to get the scoop when I get new merchandise in my shop!

⚡Custom orders can be expedited

B O R N I N N Y C X M A D E I N J C

Guts, Grit and Lipstick is a great way to start this. Growing up in New York City, I was surrounded by inspiration and at a very early age I knew creating was in my bones. After receiving my degree in Jewelry Design from the renowned Fashion Institute of Technology and moonlighting as a professional NYC Bellydancer, I somehow landed in sales for “Corporate America” in the very competitive fashion industry. After 10 draining years I decided enough was enough….I took a leap of faith to 'pursue my happiness' and here I am.
Today I have a wonderful home with my husband and fur baby Trinity, a badass work studio/showroom where I hand make all my jewelry and hand paint all my textiles. I'm also the founder of Artist & Maker Market, an open-air bazaar featuring locally created fine art and premium hand-crafted goods- connecting artists and artisans with the metro NYC community which I love so much!!
The jewelry technique I most enjoy using is the lost wax casting technique. I start by hand carving a block of wax into a wax piece of art. This is a dying art form (due to technological advancements with C.A.D) which has been around for thousands of years, it affords my finished jewelry pieces a one-of-a-kind, raw and artisan look. The final product being a true one of a kind hand crafted original design which is a stark contrast to the mass produced jewelry which is so prominent nowadays. I make jewelry inspired by classic motifs with an edgy twist. All jewelry is made with the best quality, each stone and bead ethically sourced by yours truly.
I’ve had the unique privilege of studying color theory, the use of technical tools for precision work, traditional & classical styles under my good friend and mentor- the widely known and reputable artist Peter S. Bill.
Vera Vixeness is a Jersey City based company specializing in non binary aesthetics, handmade jewelry, hand painted textiles, vintage clothing and access. My jewelry, art and painted textiles can be found on Etsy, local boutiques and galleries.
