Wave Gallery Gifts
You just can’t rush through Wave. You need to give yourself over to browsing leisurely or you’re apt to miss something really, really good. And the longer you linger the more you drool. Designer jewelry is displayed cheek-by-jowl next to up-and-comers you’ve never heard of. You don’t need to go to Barney’s or Bergdorf’s to find Alexis Bittar, Me & Ro, Lisa Jenks, Sydney Evan and Satya. Their coveted collections are right here in New Haven.
Or discover new talent like these baubles from Two Tightly Wound: 14K gold-filled wires are artfully twisted around purple amethyst, pink tourmaline and London blue topaz for an elegant, yet slightly hippy vibe (earrings, $100 to $300, necklaces,$100 to $400). Handmade is the tagline at Wave, and it extends to artisanal chocolates, handcrafted pottery and handblown glass. While you’re there stock up on greeting cards from the huge and hysterical selection.
