Originally hailing from the scenic hills of Ithaca, Rebecca Mapes has undoubtedly settled in as a true-blue Brooklyn resident. After graduating from Pratt, she joined the ranks of the local retail darlings at In God We Trust. With experiences from these two Brooklyn institutions under her belt, Rebecca set out on her own to explore where her aesthetics and whims would lead.
Taking its name from Rebecca’s grandparents’ farm across the street from her childhood home, and drawing inspiration from an ever-evolving roster and from her unwavering love for antique and vintage jewelry, Winden Jewelry is equal parts nostalgic and modern, cheeky yet refined. Rebecca’s effortless aesthetic and subtle whimsy are in full swing, resulting in a wide array of pieces that exude a universal and laid-back cool.
The Winden studio is located in a quiet corner of the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg that the designer now calls home. All pieces are designed, sourced, and made in New York.
