Lucie Wawryk, the designer and founder of Concrete Collective, is a born and raised New Yorker. Lucie launched her amorphous ethical jewelry line in 2017 and named it after her homeland and the place of its production. She is a graduate of the Gemological Institute of America, and worked in the jewelry industry in cities like New Orleans and Los Angeles before settling back in New York in 2016 to attend GIA. Concrete Collective carefully curates sources of inspiration for our jewelry including New York's architecture, sculpture, curves, femininity, and neutral tones. Every piece is ethically and meticulously made to order by a small jewelry production team in New York City.
