In New and notable, Reviews & Recommendations

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”.

Gorgeous.

So many pretty details…

I am a lucky girl! (in many ways!)
I love each and every detail. This may be the beginning of a new vintage jewelry obsession. Weee!
In addition to the bracelet were many other goodies (too many to photograph!) that I am thoroughly enjoying:
Peanut Butter Fudge from G’s Fudge
Hair accessories from Pure Sin
Scrubby dish doo-dad from Plarn Star
Stained glass ornament from Wood n’ Glass inc
The book: Making Great Bags, Tags, Boxes and Cards by Karen Delquadro
Thanks to the Lancaster Flea and Craft Market and all of the contributing vendors that made our trip to Lancaster even more special!

    LOVE the bracelet! Especially as I have been culling through all the jewelry left to me by my mother. She collected a lot of costume items in her almost 90 years – some absolutely charming, some pretty awful but all in all, eclectic. I want to recycle a lot of it and this bracelet is inspiring. Thanks for sharing!

    I love the old costume jewelry too. What a great way to repurpose pieces that may be stuck in a drawer somewhere. The colors are so pretty!

    Congratulations on your win!
