Tell us a bit about Vintage Acorn?
Vintage Acorn’s beginnings were humble and small; two sisters stumbled into the wild world of jewellery making when they set out to create earrings from a few beloved vintage fabrics. Multiple trips to textile stores and estate auctions later they had more pairs than they could ever possibly wear. Thus, Vintage Acorn was born. By filling a need, we found our niche. With ingenuity in our heads and pliers in our hands, we expanded to include necklaces and hand-painted pieces, drawing inspiration from street blogs, antique stores, and the markets of our travels. Each collection focuses on a different theme, element, or idea, all of which speak to imaginative souls and lovers of simple design.
Handmade jewellery inspired by geometric shapes, vintage florals, late night chats and hidden markets. Each collection, comprised of hand-painted wooden earrings and necklaces, fabric covered button earrings, and gold and antique brass metals, focuses on a different theme, element, or idea, all of which speak to imaginative souls and lovers of simple design.
