Here is the excerpt of Domenica Bucalo's (the author of the interview and the portrait photos) interview with Lia:
"What is your favorite place in NY?
"A place I love is my friend and colleague’s studio, Jelena Behrend Studio on the Lower East Side. Jelena is an artist and jeweler, and her studio is filled with art, hammers, fire, and metal. We have collaborated on several limited editions including sculptural vessels with Lisa Kirk and Justin Vivian Bond, and I wear her jewelry every day like armor."

Best kept secret in NY? "Same as above."
As Lia mentioned in her interview, she wears Jelena's jewelry all the time, everywhere and we could not ask for a better spokesperson. As to the best kept secret status- visit the studio and see for your self.
