FOUNDER & DESIGNER, W.BRITT
Founder and designer Brittany Weiss of W. BRITT relishes the process of turning objects that are often ignored into something beautiful and wearable. She can’t help but be endlessly curious about her environment and how to reimagine the simple things we see everyday. Her style and approach to design are drawn from educations in both Israel at the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design and Manhattan at the Fashion Institute of Technology for jewelry design, giving her a unique blend of artistic perspective and fine jewelry training. W. BRITT (https://www.wbritt.com/) is a luxury jewelry design studio based in New York City with an established and loyal following of celebrities, fashion It girls, and stylists, who are drawn to Brittany Weiss’ unique way of deconstructing mechanical and architectural shapes and presenting them in bold, wearable pieces. Fans include Khloe Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Lupita Nyongo, Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba and many others.

What are you doing at:
6:00 AM – Sleeping. I generally get up around 7. I meditate, do yoga and sometimes journal.
10:00 AM – Working …I generally start working by answering emails form buyers, production and anything else that has come my way overnight. I try to get the more technical work done in the am and then I do more creative work in the evening or on the weekend.
12:00 PM – Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?
I am not a huge lunch person during the week. I love brunch on the weekend and Two Hands is one of my favorite spots and I love the Zoe’s Market Plate.
7 :00 PM – I am usually finishing up work around then. If I don’t have dinner plans with friends I will text my husband and see what he wants to do which is generally split 3 ways between cooking, ordering in or going out. After that we will probably watch something or go for a way on the Hudson river when the evening is nice.
11:00 PM – Generally getting ready for bed. I will sometime watch TV or read a book in bed.
