Little Stardust Co. was created by the artist and jewelry designer Derrick Cruz, and launched in New York City in 2019.
In an age when most of our photos are shared far and wide, our goal is to combine age-old technology with contemporary jewelry to offer intimate, bespoke keepsakes. Each piece of Little Stardust jewelry contains a discreet, microscopic image viewed with a miniature “optical bijou” glass lens.
Derrick Cruz is a Brooklyn-born designer influenced by the intersection of storytelling, craftsmanship, and technology as materialized in the applied arts. He is the founder of Betroth, Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons and the influential collective known as Occulter. Cruz is the recipient of several international honors, and his art has been featured at The New York Museum of Art and Design and The Santa Monica Museum of Art, among others. His jewelry has been featured in Time Magazine, The New York Times, Interview, GQ, Purple, and Rolling Stone, among others. Cruz currently works in Manhattan and is a faculty member at Parson’s New School for Design. Find out more at derrickcruz.com.
