old school































Erica Weiner has turned her Lower East Side apartment into a little jewelry empire, making eye-catching, affordable pieces out of repurposed materials, base metals, and vintage chain and charms.

Each item, be it a piece of type from an old letterpress or a miniature harmonica, is beautifully nostalgic.

And, I just love them all.





















But, my absolute favorite is Erica's Waldorf Astoria necklace - a hand-cast reproduction of a 1930s-50s cocktail pick from the historic Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City.

So very cool.
