To introduce Best Friends Brooklyn, a new jewelry line made in Greenpoint by Charlotte Greville and Danielle Mayer, we asked some famous besties to weigh in.
“Bean Town’s where it all started. In high school, they would get wicked crafty with thrift store finds. Now they live and freelance in New York (Mayer designs; Greville is a stylist). Who leaves Boston?” — Affleck & Damon
“Mayer strings vintage glass snake beads between stacked silver or brass caps on wax cotton cords. Greville sands wood (bocote, black and white ebony — word) into oversize emerald-cut blocks and hangs the pendants from chains or sturdy cords with honeycomb rings. We dare you to pick the prettier half.” — Usher & The Biebs
“Dreams come true. Cynthia Rowley now sells colored leather versions in her stores.” — Laverne & Shirley
“Rumor is scarves and geometric bolos are coming. But whatever, sometimes they wear identical outfits, like not on purpose.” — Cher & Dionne
Available at Cynthia Rowley, 376 Bleecker Street, between Charles and Perry Streets (212-242-0847); online at bestfriendsbrooklyn.com, $65-$120.
