Like the Verameat moniker itself, every piece of the line's jewelry blends delicate beauty with dark whimsy. Only a unique set of experiences could result in such strange juxtaposition, and the life story of its designer doesn't disappoint. As a child in Ukraine, Vera Balyura carved wood with her grandfather. As a kid in Utah, she rode horses. As a teen in New York City, she worked as a fashion model. Today, as Verameat, Balyura uses these experiences—along with recycled silver, 14-karat gold, and the manual precision inherited from her surgeon grandmother—to create striking pieces of jewelry.
Each item, from necklace pendants and rings to bracelets and earrings, "mirrors a self-sufficient lifeform with a sculptural presence," according to the website. That concept is evident in baubles whose shapes include french bulldogs, wishbones, switchblades, macabre baby-doll heads, disembodied hands, and dinosaurs eating fried chicken. The whimsical jewelry has certainly struck a chord, having been deemed fashionable by Refinery29 and landing in the wardrobes of celebrity musicians (Karen O, Annie Clark, Sharon Van Etten), actors (Chloe Sevigny, Anna Kendrick), and comics (Zach Galifianakis, Amy Sedaris, Sarah Silverman).
