If glancing at the squiggly metal charms of Tiffani Williams’s jewelry reminds you of poring over a biology textbook, that’s no accident. “I’m really drawn to organic shapes. I start with a concept, such as the amoeba, and then build off of that,” she explains.

If glancing at the squiggly metal charms of Tiffani Williams’s jewelry reminds you of poring over a biology textbook, that’s no accident. “I’m really drawn to organic shapes. I start with a concept, such as the amoeba, and then build off of that,” she explains. Even the founding of her line came together organically: In 2015, the knitwear company where she’d worked as a textile expert for over a decade closed its L.A. doors (an Austin native, she’s lived in California for just shy of 20 years), and the timing suddenly seemed right to shift her dabbling-in-accessories hobby to a day job.

So why name her line Modern Weaving after her former full-time gig? It’s actually shout-out to her method of tying together an old-school process, drawing original designs by hand, with modern technologies like laser-cutting, which bring her sketches to life. She launched with slouchy leather bags and ridged ceramic necklaces, quickly adding mobile-like brass earrings and collars to the mix. Her product-development approach comes back to mitochondria and cell walls: “I’m drawn to things that are imperfect. Maybe it comes from working with clay, where you never get the exact same thing twice.” —kathryn sanders
