Yam is a made to order, handmade jewelry brand based in Queens, NY. The brand is dedicated to creating new, yet nostalgic pieces through up-cycled materials and vintage silhouettes. Designs incorporate classic and industrial hardware elements, complimented with cheeky and charming nature motifs and pearl accents. Yam is here to remind you of what you know and once knew. 

Yam is Black owned and woman operated. 


" Yam was conceived when my mom brought home a jewelry making book when I was young. An activity that unknowingly implanted an idea for a company later recognizing her legacy."
