and I especially love seeing antique or vintage jewelry
worn in a modern and fresh way.
Here's an example
A caftan style shift with simple lines worn with an antique necklace from Beladora2
Every time I pick up a piece of antique jewelry I wonder about many things.
Who was the original owner?
Did she get the item as a gift and if so for what purpose?
What was her life like when she was wearing the piece?
Was she happy or sad?
In some ways, holding an antique in my hand is like having one part of a story or one piece of a historical puzzle, and I can't help but want to have the rest of the pieces in order to put the puzzle together and to know the whole story.
But since that can't be done, I'll settle for wearing that antique piece now and creating a new story to go with it.
