Every piece is designed and made by hand in my NYC studio. We work with acrylic and polymer clay for most pieces, pairing them with hand-stained wood, resins and other materials to give a multi-faceted look.
Our acrylic accessories are designed from the ground up, often beginning as a sketch, before becoming a digital drawing that we use to prototype and laser cut in-house. Each piece is then assembled by hand to create a stunning polished accessory.
This API woman-owned independent business doesn't believe in fast-fashion. All pieces are made to last, and are responsibly made, minimizing waste where possible. Our process is small in scale and promotes artistry over mass production.
The earrings I have from By Chavelli are the only earrings I can wear all day without my ears hurting, they are so light!
