Made in Brooklyn, New York
In 2011, husband-and-wife duo Tats and Ena Otake left Hawaii to start a new adventure in Greenpoint, NY, launching their hand-made jewelry and accessories brand 8.6.4. Leaving behind their long term, detail-oriented careers to begin a new chapter in NYC, 8.6.4 has quickly become a favorite among fashion jewelry and accessories fans as a go-to for minimal design. What the 8.6.4 team lacked in formal design training, they made up for with experience from their previous jobs, which included digital production and the culinary arts. Fast forward a few years, and you have a brand that is anything but amateur, with collections that are inspired by everyday objects and designed with an incredible attention to detail and superior craftsmanship.
