Please, prepare yourself for a little something I like to call, “Jewelry Mecca,” better known as the vintage collection of Atlantis Home’s Judy Aldridge. Light a candle, burn some incense, do a chant- whatever gets your mind right, honey. And when you’re ready, come on in…
The air was abuzz with electric anticipation as guests arrived to pay homage to, and cold hard cash for, some very divine vintage pieces. Shoppers swirled around the displays, reverently caressing and tenderly holding the necklaces and belts before trying them on. Ever so often, the jewelry was rearranged and pieces were added or taken away as they found new homes around the necks or waists of jewelry enthusists.
I chatted with Jane and Judy a while before spying a few items I thought would look good in my own collection. Scroll on down and prepare to be amazed!
I swear, the jewelry practically called out from the table, “Take me! I’m yours!” Below: blinged out shrimp, octopus and monkey, oh my!
I finally settled on this piece- an “Upside Down Bottle” necklace. I immediately loved the shape of it and the stone was a nice finish. I also thought it was the perfect length, as most of my vintage necklaces are not as long as I’d like them to be. I feel this a perfect statement necklace.
All in all, this was a wonderful event, and I’m so glad to have met a lot of down-to-earth and very talented folks. Thanks to Karen, Judy and Jane and all those who made this event spectacular!
