When Biggie said, “Spread love, it’s the Brooklyn way…“, Kerri O’Connell took note and created Good Wood NYC, a Brooklyn based company that focuses on hand carved rings. This creative lady saw a need for sustainable accessories and filled it. No diamonds or gold, just good wood from Mother Earth. Kerri has been bringing the vibe of an environmentally friendly Radio Raheem to the masses and, with amazing collabos waiting in the wings, there’s no sign of her slowing down!
Beginning with rings, Kerri extended the line to custom pendants, bracelets and earrings.
All Good Wood NYC pieces are handmade and designed by Kerri along with a “team of wood carving elves”…who I picture rockin’ track-suits and kicks. The pieces are intricately hand carved into light and dark wood and sanded for the smoothest results.
Today we honor, Kerri O’Connell for her creative and innovative mind, as she takes the essence of Hip Hop into the next century. Read on after the jump to learn more about Kerri and Good Wood NYC!
