With the help of visual artists, acclaimed jeweler Greg Yüna paired two of his jewelry collections with complementing drawings as part of an art show called “DRIP” for the charity, Drop4Drop. Yüna teamed up with artist @ilovehash who created illustrations of the crucifix paired with the jeweler’s miniature Jesus pieces — lauded as the smallest in the world. Moreover, he displayed a pendant of the late Nipsey Hussle in a bespoke gold paisley frame and KAWS dolls covered in over 50 carats of black diamonds.
Also on display was his series entitled ‘Fairytale Nightmares’ made in partnership with model and artist Mia Kang. The pair recreated their favorite childhood Disney characters “but with a drug-encrusted drug habit,” said Yüna. “This was just a taste – the plan is to build out these collaborations and my repertoire as an artist, and take this show to different cities. It’s something people have never seen before,” described the jeweler of his future plans with the series.
