Happy Fashion Friday! I would like to introduce you to my newest OBSESSION! Something Olde Jewelry. A gorgeous and glamorous new line by Jewelry Designer Tara Giordano, that is bringing the antique, Old Hollywood style back into the now! Tara, who is much like her jewelry line, beautiful, feminine, modern, yet classic and timeless, uses a variety of vintage and new materials that she acquires from estate sales, thrift stores, vintage shops, etc, and re purposes them to make something breathtaking and eye catching! For example, she may use pearls or beads from an old rosary to make a stunning and magnificent pair of earrings, or, a piece in particular that comes to mind, the Vintage Y Necklace, which was inspired by a broken vintage rhinestone earring that she transformed into a striking, jaw dropping necklace. Tara only uses the finest materials including sterling sliver, 14 karat gold and prestigious Swarovski crystals.
Tara has always loved the energy that jewelry holds and believes it to be extremely personal. That is one reasons she likes to use vintage pieces to create new ones. The history that an old piece carries is so powerful. It’s fun to imagine the journey that your custom made piece has been on before it has made its way into your possession. Maybe parts of your new necklace were worn to a grand ball, or by royalty, or by a young woman on the day she said “I do” to the man of her dreams…
Also, I would like to point out that Something Olde is also something green! By purchasing from Tara’s Collection, you are doing something wonderful for the environment! Recycling is awesome- even in fashion!
Finally, you can purchase these one-of-a-kind pieces on etsy.com. You package will arrive promptly and beautifully gift wrapped. Tara is always adding new treasures, so make sure to check the site often.
