Last December Bunny’s Trunk Show was invited to adorn models on the catwalk with our vintage jewelry at the UnEarthed Fashion Show in Chicago. We were very excited because this was no ordinary show. It was a show with student designers remaking vintage clothing. They were bringing the past into the present with great contemporary looks. I loved the idea. In the back of my mind I have always wanted to re-make some of the broken vintage jewelry that I have been squirreling away. I have played around a bit, and really hope to start making some great pieces. It was inspiring to see what they could do with the clothes.
The show was also great for me because I saw a new perspective on how to wear the vintage jewelry pieces. Two of the necklaces were creativity placed on the models by the designers. For example, I loved the way the Long Silver Tone Snake Chain Necklace was wrapped around the model’s neck so artistically. I would have never imagined it could look this way.
The Four Strand Faux Aurora Borealis Pearl Necklace was also very creatively worn. It now is a 28 inch necklace and not a choker.
The other two necklaces completed the fashion ensembles. Here is the gorgeous Black on Red Cinnabar Bead Necklace.
And the classically beautiful Gold Tone Large Filigree Pendant Necklace.
All four pieces have just been added to our shop. You can find them in the necklace section. Get them before they’re gone!
