With nearly a decade of experience working on Long Beach Island, Milano has honed her craft and established herself as a creative entrepreneur in the world of jewelry design. Her pop-ups are not limited to a single location; she sets up shop at various spots up and down the Long Beach Island, and all over New Jersey ensuring that her stunning creations are accessible to a wide audience. At West Village Tribe, customers can immerse themselves in a captivating array of handcrafted permanent bracelets, anklets, earrings, necklaces, and rings. Each piece of jewelry is crafted and fully customizable, making them truly unique for every individual. 

One of the highlights of West Village Tribe is their jewelry sourced from Florence, Italy. Their authentic European flair adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to her collection. The stones used in these pieces are gorgeous, boasting unique characteristics that set them apart from conventional jewelry. Milano’s technique for creating her permanent bracelets is different from the norm. 

“I wire wrap them which is different from what other people are doing for their permanent bracelets,” Milano said. “They are 14 carat gold chains which are durable.”
