Morgan Thomas, who grew up in Berkeley California, fell in love with making jewelry when her mother brought home a jewelry-making book. Her first business, “Artsy,” soon followed in elementary school, selling handcrafted accessories at church. These childhood dreams did not fade away, and after graduating from New York University with a BFA in Fine Arts and a concentration in sculpture, the brand YAM came to fruition.

Thomas’ mother passed away of cancer while she was still in college. The Astoria-based jewelry brand channels a fondness for childhood and a refined artistic eye to recycle and revive metal materials. These sparkling minerals, repurposed, are bespoke designs for the YAM customer.

There is a tangible nostalgia to each one of Thomas’ creations, born from the classical forms and cheery imagery she uses. With floral or pearlesque amulets and trinkets dangling from sustainable jewelry, YAM reminds its audience of the allure of collecting charms on a charm bracelet.

“YAM is an ode to my late mother,” Thomas says, and her designs truly do beg one to indulge in their own nostalgia, to imagine the stories behind the beautiful stones and beads they hold, and to hold on to the joy of being young.
