Nothing lasts forever unless you get it welded on, which is a viable option thanks to Catbird—the beloved Brooklyn-based demi-fine jeweler whose pieces are made from 95% recycled 14k gold. Zapping—the term Catbird uses to describe its process of custom fitting and welding a solid gold claspless bracelet directly onto you—and more are offered at the label's new Platform pop-up in Culver City.

Open only during the month of June, the store stocks a wide edit of Catbird's cult-favorite delicate designs, a select assortment of jewelry from its long-time partners including Wwake, Sofia Zakia, Jennie Kwon, and Kataoka, as well as wedding and engagement rings. Beyond jewels, the brand's signature candles and select home and beauty gifts are also up for grabs. 

In addition to adorning Angelenos in minimalist-approved dainty jewelry, Catbird is hosting an array of events. Earlier this month, the brand invited designer and goldsmith Jean Prounis of Prounis Jewelry to weld her handmade 22k small solo loop-in-loop chain bracelet onto shoppers' wrists. It recently hosted a book exchange with Girls at Library and today, June 17, a vintage market from Arcade—the same community behind A Current Affair—is popping up on the shop's front patio.

Every Saturday, you can head to Catbird to enjoy aperitivos on its patio from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and from Friday, June 17 to Sunday, June 19, the first 250 customers to spend $250 will receive a limited edition L.A. Catbird tote filled with Fleur Marché's Energy Plz wellness patch and Chantecaille's lip tint hydrating balm.

Founded in 2004 by Rony Vardi, Catbird opened its first storefront on Williamsburg's Bedford Avenue. In 2018, it debuted a Wedding Annex dedicated to its wedding and engagement collections and a year later, a Manhattan outpost. This March, it closed its original Bedford shop and opened a 2,500-square-foot flagship on N. 7th St. in Williamsburg.

Check out the gallery above to see what zapping looks like and head over to the address below before the store closes on June 29. Walk-ins are welcome.
