Modern Meredith

February 13, 2010

You are getting the first glimpse of the latest amanda k. line of necklaces, Modern Meredith! The name comes from my grandmother, who is a graduate of Meredith College in the early 40s. They were affectionately known as the Meredith Angels.  I visited the campus recently and stepped back in time, picturing the young, stylish women walking across campus with their skirts and heels and pinned up hair. I imagined many of them wearing pretty necklaces or special brooches, creating that timeless and iconic look we all seem to know. The necklaces in this collection are a more modern and fresh interpretation of what I pictured a Meredith Angel wearing, thus the name Modern Meredith!

Each piece is completely unique, there is (and never will be!) another like it. I have handpicked a lovely collection of vintage brooches and incorporate one into each necklace, giving it new life and adding character to the other stones or beads. Whether you wear it with a simple black dress or your favorite jeans and sweater, these necklaces are sure to be statement pieces!

Check back in a couple days for another peek at this growing collection!

    Not sure I ever saw this blog. All of your jewelry is beautiful. The colors are so gorgeous! And Meredith! What a tribute and what a great name. The girls at Meredith was back in 1942 were amazingly classy, I assure you.
