"It's a dangerous business... going out your door.
You step onto the road, & if you don't keep your feet,
there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself, too. - Samuel Butler

Look, there’s a great big hunk of world down there, with no fence around it. Where two dogs can find adventure and excitement. And beyond those distant hills, who knows what wonderful experiences? And it’s all ours for the taking, Pige. It’s all ours.

Studio Tour: Catbird™
in certain jewelry-obsessed circles, Catbird’s Rony Vardi is known as the authority on the art of the ring stack. we checked in with the Williamsburg shop owner and newest J.Crew fine-jewelry collaborator to find out how she got her start.

BROOKLYN MADE
Before Rony Vardi opened Catbird on Williamsburg’s Metropolitan Avenue in 2004 (the shop has since moved to Bedford Avenue), she was like any other twentysomething, bouncing around between jobs—working as a seamstress and then as a graphic designer. “I knew I eventually wanted to work for myself and had this idea of an ongoing creative project that would take shape over time,” she says. When a retail space opened up in her neighborhood she took it as a sign. “I think Williamsburg’s energy is still its biggest appeal, and there has always been a strong entrepreneurial spirit,” she explains. Now, Catbird has a team of 30 employees (and counting) and a three-room office space, which includes a full jewelry studio, right near the Williamsburg Bridge in addition to its stand-alone boutique.

Clockwise from top: Rony wears a Catbird 14k gold ballerina earring, a diamond elfin stud and dot earrings; Threadbare stacking rings; Catbird created this 14k gold Lovecat ring (“We first made it as a pinky ring for Jenna,” says Rony) and a pair of Les Petites earrings just for J.Crew; she pairs a personal piece with the Catbird long changeling necklace.

PIECE BY PIECE
At Catbird’s storefront, the vitrines of jewelry remain the shop’s biggest draw. “When we first started, we had one woman who made us a few bands from home. Now we have 17 full-time jewelry designers,” says Rony. The process is wholly collaborative too. Some designs start with a wax carving or sketch. Designs aren’t introduced seasonally but instead when the team comes up with something they really like. Case in point: The idea for one of their best sellers, the ultrathin Threadbare ring, came from her buyer, Leigh Plessner. “The idea was this little wisp of gold that would become an instant keepsake,” says Rony. “We love picturing little girls being given their mom’s Catbird stacks years from now.”
