Giftable Artisan Jewelry

Uyen Tang’s online style boutique has something for everyone.

Uyen Tang launched two years ago after a turn in the U.S. Foreign Service and another as a consultant. “I was always bringing back cool pieces from around the world,” says the Ballston resident. “Everyone would ask me where I’d gotten them.”

These days, however, she’s supporting artisans whose pieces are made stateside. While her online boutique carries a handful of clothing lines, its specialty is pared-down jewelry (Tang describes it as “modern minimalist with an edge”) by independent women designers who have a track record of giving back to their communities.

Try one of these on for a dose of summer shimmer.
