Have you ever wondered about the people who made your favorite mug, shirt or chair? In Why Do We Have Things?, Rita Mehta of The American Edit and Erin Husted of Hackwith Design House interview the independent designers, artists, small business owners and creatives behind our favorite things.
Today’s guest is Kay Wang, owner and jewelry designer of The Things We Keep, a home and jewelry line based on the idea that of all the things we accumulate in our lifetime, the things that stay with us are the things we keep most dear to us. All work is designed and fabricated by hand in NYC.
NOTES FROM THE SHOW:
– The Things We Keep
– Kay took jewelry making classes at Liloveve studio
– Some of Kay’s pieces are named after and inspired by Walter Gropius & Marcel Breuer
– Books Kay recommends: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, Bleak House by Charles Dickens, Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
