Last weekend, I dropped by Sunday Eclectica, a fortnightly flea market at The Pigeonhole that features local artists, designers, and crafters. I went to support my friend, seamstress, and designer Marie, of Etincelle Creative Studio, and to chat with Lauryn Tang of My Vintage Jewel Box, her line of new and vintage jewelry in sterling silver, gold, and natural gems.
Lauryn trades in vintage jewelry (from a collection that her mother accumulated over time), is inspired everything from lotus flowers to champaign bubbles, and has a particular love for working with uncut gemstones. I’d be hard-pressed to choose my favorite pieces from her line, but that day at The Pigeonhole, I think I tried on nearly every ring on display.
