After moving into our new San Francisco apartment, I finally had the opportunity (and the space!) to display a few of my favorite collected jewels and accessories. After tucking everything away for so many years in my tiny Manhattan studio, it is so nice to have a space where I can be reminded of my fondest vintage shopping memories. I found these Pottery Barn Antique Gold Jewelry Boxes to keep my jewelry and sunglasses where I would still be able to see them while keeping everything dust free. Next up on my SF home tour will be my dresser!
I found these statement pearl earrings designed by Lawrence Vrba at my favorite antique mall in New York City; Showplace Antique & Design Center. Multiple floors filled with furniture, decor, clothing, collectables and of course... jewelry. Vrba has recently become one of my favorite vintage and contemporary jewelry designers. After stumbling across a few of his pieces recently, I did some more research only to discover that (surprise, surprise) he used to design for one of my other favorite antique jewelry designers: Miriam Haskell. I found a few online sites where you can shop Vrba's jewelry here, here and here. And if you are ever in New York City, make sure to stop by Bergdorf Goodman... You can often spot his jewelry creations among their window displays!
