Renegade Craft Fair giveaway
5th26 was founded in 2016 by designer Brandon Tang, who spent 10 years working for fashion brands across the world. The company produces a variety of home decor objects, like these adorable oil lamps ($150). The pieces hold liquid at the top—making the flame literally float—and there's space at the base to spruce the lamp up with decorative stones or flowers.
Erin Wengrovius Ceramics
Erin Wengrovius produces a compelling line of ceramic products out of her Brooklyn studio. Her works are largely inspired by her childhood, and that sentiment shines through in these handmade pots ($100). They're perfect for small plants, snacks or anything else that one might keep on a side table or windowsill.
Hooks and Luxe
She's making jewelry now, and by she, we mean Ryoko Kitazawa. After moving to NYC from Japan in 2009, the artist began creating a unique line of accessories under the monniker Hooks and Luxe. These pieces—pearl teardrop earrings ($42), a semi-circle hammered necklace ($54) and gold long arc earrings ($20)—are a perfect way to add a special flair to your style.
Brooklyn-based textile designer Julie Vansuch puts a modern twist on classic patterns. From scarves to kerchiefs to headbands, her work is printed in Como, Italy, and are inspired by landscapes and geometry. This scarf ($149), for example, draws from vantages of mountain landscapes.
Jenna Aliyah's products might not be vintage, but they're directly inspired by crafts of yesteryear. These pieces from the New Jersey-based printer and stitcher call back to the '60s—the body purse and wallet draw from Casablanca, and the pineapple linen pouch evokes a post-war vibe ($110).
Traveling is great and all, but exploring the corners of the world is all the better when you're posh AF. Spencer Devine's line of convertible hand and travel bags are born out of the Assam Capsule Project, which gives artisans in India the opportunity to earn money and experience while they grow their businesses. The bag featured here is made completely from finely-woven recycled plastic, and the two pouches are sourced from Italian leather and custom woven fabric ($178).
Rocking a porcelain necklace from Mier Luo will surely turn some heads as you galavant across New York this summer. These gold-dipped studs and matching necklace are formed from clay and assembled with 14-karat gold-filled findings ($120).
The Salt Cure
Renegade Craft Fair is filled to the brim with beautiful ceramics, and the works produced by The Salt Cure are among them. The artist is offering a "pink wave" planter ($38), a black and blue panter ($24) and a phases ring dish ($17), which is made for storing or accenting jewelry.
If Paris and New York are the fashion capitals of the world, then Virginie Millefiori a perfect bridge between the two. The artist came up in Paris and moved to NYC in 2011. She's been creating fashionable pieces of jewelry since, like this "Kiss Ring" ($45) and Chevron cuff ($118).
Friend of All
Friend of All puts out works that aim to "achieve total transformation" to one's home. This Pink Moon Pyramid lamp ($275) is a perfect example of such. The piece is made of iridescent pink and green glass that's accented with opaque black streaks.
