Jewelry Handmade in the Bronx, by a Harlem Girl
A New Day, A New Dawn NYC (And And NYC), is a Bronx-based jewelry company owned and operated by Andrea. At a very young age, she knew she wanted to be an entrepreneur, but she didn’t know in what field. After almost two decades of working in the fashion industry, in 2015 she created this company, ironically, out of the necessity to have a creative outlet. Well actually, a friend pushed Andrea to create earrings to sell at a holiday pop-up shop, and she agreed—the rest is history. God’s timing is everything!
Each piece is made with love and joy. Andrea’s love of natural materials, and responsibly sourced fair-trade beads and fabrics can be seen in each collection created. She takes pride in working closely with artisans all over the world and in the United States to find unique one-of-a-kind pieces, that will in turn create unique jewelry designs.
Since And And NYC’s inception, the product line has grown into including chokers, lapel pins, bracelets, cufflinks, and of course, more styles of earrings. A limited selection of earrings can be found at Whole Foods Market in Harlem, while a larger range of products can be found at Calabar Imports Harlem.
What’s in a Name?
And And NYC, is an acronym for ‘A New Day, A New Dawn’. It's a play on words from Nina Simone's song "Feeling Good", one of the designers favorite songs.
Each collection has a distinct name. They are names of people Andrea holds near and dear to her heart. The Inez Loops, Leona’s Cabochons, and Jessie Hoops are named after her three deceased grandmothers, respectively. The Taliferro and Parham Collections are named after her deceased grandfathers, respectfully. The Mary Dots are named after her mom. The Monét Collection is named after her best friend aka sister, while the Erno Collection is named after her boo thang. Jediah’s Oddities are the designer’s namesake.
