Yesterday I came home to a surprise (and I love surprises!) – a package in my mailbox! I anxiously ripped apart the hideously ugly shipping box to find this! A beautifully simple box with a green bow and a note. “Enjoy your new necklace!” My jewelry had finally arrived!
After browsing her fabulous collection of necklaces I settled on the Robin Hood necklace, red glass beads adorned with a vintage silver leaf brooch. I don’t have anything in my jewelry box like this so I am extremely excited to add it to my personal collection!
Fueled by her passion for everything vintage, Irene Jung (the designer, duh!) explores flea markets, estate sales and antique shops searching for forgotten treasures that can be given new life in her collections. The combination of vintage meets modern is what sets her creations apart from other jewelry designers. The best part? Each piece is one-of-a-kind and handmade in her workshop in the City by the Bay, San Francisco.
