Wolf met the talented Gardy while working and volunteering in Haiti, and brought back some of his incredible handmade macrame jewelry after a trip this past fall. As fate would have it, Lori Parkerson, owner of 14th Street boutique Redeem and a champion of indie jewelry designers, scooped up the collection and can hardly keep the intricate, made-to-order pieces in stock.
Obviously, we're suckers for a good story — and we couldn't resist this one. But even better? We can't resist the simple-yet-elegant pieces Gardy has crafted, meticulously weaving and tying each piece by hand from his makeshift tent-turned-studio in Port au Prince. You can shop the current offerings on Etsy, or try some on for size in person at Redeem — but first, click through to get a sneak peek.
