Our designers

Bitten is fortunate to be the exclusive New Zealand stockists of the following deisgners from New York City.

Odette New York
Odette New York jewellery is inspired by organic and industrial shapes, natural specimens, artefacts and primitive forms; made using ancient and modern wax carving techniques and hand fabrication. The line is crafted by hand in Brooklyn, New York City. Each design begins from a pencil sketch that is carefully translated by hand into wax, like a small-scale sculpture, before being cast into metal.
The Odette New York collection is stocked by Rebecca Taylor and Steve Alan stores through the United States.
Our selection includes pieces in recycled sterling sliver, brass and bronze.

The creators of K/LLER COLLECTION, Katie Deguzman and Michael Miller, met at Parsons School of Design in New York City, where they studied furniture design. Katie bought a bracelet from Michael to hide a tattoo from her mother and they’ve been friends ever since.
The aesthetic of the range revolves around their interest in choppers, rusted tools, alchemy and androgyny. The collection, constructed from an amalgam of oxidised, rough-hewn metals delicately cast over skeletal organic materials, vibes a raw rebellious spirit.
Every piece of K/LLER COLLECTION is made in the USA, and most pieces are handmade in Katie and Michael’s Brooklyn based studio.
K/LLER COLLECTION has been sold in Helmut Lang international flagship stores and is currently available at Barney’s Co-Op stores.
Our selection includes pieces in brass, sterling silver and rose gold plating.

In God We Trust
In God We Trust is a New York City-based brand, encompassing both men’s and women’s clothing ranges and a jewellery collection. Shana Tabor, the woman behind the label, describes the range as inspired by everyday life, everything vintage and her irreverent, often dark-witted, humour.
In God We Trust prides itself on manufacturing all of its designs exclusively in the USA. The jewellery range is made at their Brooklyn studio. Our selection includes pieces in sterling silver and brass.

Ever + Ever
Rebecca Fogle is the creative force behind Brooklyn-based Ever + Ever. A self-taught artist, her work is simple, delicate and feminine. Rebecca says she does not rely on sketches to develop designs – she spills gemstones onto her worktable and lets them show her now they should be put together. The Ever + Ever range is all hand-made in her studio, utilising sterling silver, 14kt gold-fill, gemstones and pearls.

Nervous System
While not made in New York City (Nervous System is based in Massachusetts), I came across the designs while visiting New York City’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) – and they were too cool to leave out!
Nervous System is a generative design studio working at the intersection of science, art and technology. Founded in 2007 by Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg, Nervous System uses computer simulation to create designs and digital stimulation to realise products. The inspiration for this unique line of jewellery is grounded in the forms and patterns found in nature – from plants and algae to microscopic cellular arrangements.
Our selection includes pieces in sterling sliver, stainless steel and nylon. (Check out the 3-D printed rings!)
