Welcome to Apartment 5B, an urban luxe accessories label with a cool street edge and a strong eco-consciousness.
Fusing a minimalist aesthetic with maximalist sensibilities, 5B originals are bold statement-making jewellery pieces designed to turn heads. Striking elements are unpredictably combined in a grunge bent.
5B neckpieces blur the boundaries between fashion and art, instantly adding an avant-garde edge to your urban wardrobe.
Apartment 5B has an individualist fashion sensibility inspired by contemporary culture and architecture. We’re not constrained by what we’re told is fashion.
We love taking risks, experimenting and reimagining. We do back-to-front, inside-out and deconstructed with our refashioned wearable art.
Not your average jewellery, every 5B piece makes a statement. And not just by design.
Reducing fashion’s footprint on our planet isn’t just important, it’s part of the Apartment 5B blueprint. Sustainable and ethical practices are what we do. They’re cemented into our foundations.
We believe some things are just too good to go to waste. We don’t just recycle. We repurpose and upcycle where we can. We intercept excess industrial materials, vintage and everyday items, and refashion them into coveted objects of beauty.
We consciously source our materials to minimise our impact on the planet. Whether it’s rescuing materials destined for landfill or an incinerator, sourcing industrial off-cuts or giving ‘deadstock’ a new lease of life. By choosing a 5B jewellery piece, you’re helping save resources, energy and landfill space.
Because we upcycle, 5B neckpieces are designed to be imperfectly perfect. Colour, tonal and textural variances are intended and celebrated for the inherent beauty and character they add to each 5B original.
While our designs may be big and bold, our production is not. Our neckpieces are ethically made by us in the 5B studio in Brisbane, Australia. We do small batch runs and limited edition B.spoke pieces, all handmade with love and designed to last. If you want something designed for a special occasion, please get in touch.
Our packaging is proudly plastic free and we use Sendle, Australia’s first 100% carbon-neutral delivery service, to get our jewellery safely to your door.
