A long while ago I fell in love with vintage jewelry. In college I used to buy baubles at the thrift store, deconstruct them, then reassemble them into earrings which I sold out of my dorm room. More recently I’ve been haunting vintage resale shops on etsy for enameled flower brooches.
A few weekends ago, my husband and I took a trip to Lancaster, PA for an anniversary get-away. During the city’s Art Walk event and we stumbled upon the Lancaster Flea and Craft Market at the Candy Factory. Inside, I found myself staring at the most beautifully redesigned vintage jewelry by Amanda Wagner of Modulation Jewelry. Amanda and I chatted for quite a while as I admired her work and talked about her inspiration: art, movies, and of course old jewelry itself.
As luck would have it that day, my thoughtful husband entered my name into a Mother’s Day Gift Basket Raffle…and I won! Among many fabulous goodies, was this amazing bracelet by Amanda, aptly called “Pink Lemonade”.
