So, as I wait for the train to make yet another trip to CT to have work done on my tattoo at Hope Gallery (check them out at http://www.hopegallerytattoo.com and Tim Harris does my work) I’m thinking about traveling and travel jewelry.
True, a trip to New Haven via Metro North doesn’t really qualify as a trip, but anytime I have to step foot into Grand Central it feels like a major journey!
The concept of travel jewelry has always seemed like a weird thing to me. The idea that women with venerable jewelry collections would feel ok about wearing fakes, oh excuse me Travel Jewelry , while traveling but they wouldn’t dare to do that at home.
Is that akin to my belief that calories consumed or money spent abroad don’t count? They some how fall into the chasm of the Atlantic when you’re flying over head or the change in time zones makes them null and void?
There are companies that just specialize in Travel Jewelry. Somehow referring to it that way, as opposed to costume makes it seems more exotic and desirable, or maybe that’s just me.
Lanciani (www.lanciani.com) is one such company, and I’ve passed their shops on Madison and Lexington avenues many times, peered into the window and wondered who really buys that stuff? Is it just too difficult to be seperated from your sparkly baubles while you bake on the beach for a week, so much so that you have to run out and buy a copy?
Well, now on second thought it might be and people don’t travel in the same style the way they use to, so if this helps, why not!
By the way if this post looks weird it’s because I’m using the mobile site on my phone, so my fingers are crossed and I’m hoping for the best!
I promise I’ll be adding some new pieces to the website this weekend so don’t forget to take a look – http://www.fromtheashesvintagejewels.com
