The discovery of a cache of naturally aged vintage chains, originally used by some of the famous European fashion designers of the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, was a powerful inspiration for North Carolina jewelry designer, Judith Altman.  “When I found these copper, brass and gold chains, and pendants, and learned of their provenance, I wanted to create fashion-forward designs that enhanced their vintage appeal," explains Altman about the serendipitous find at a jewelry supply show. "I embellished them with swinging tassels and semi-precious gems and pearls creating long, layered silhouettes in tune with today’s hottest look.  The response has been overwhelming, and I anticipate that this Collection will quickly sell out at Market.”   As a result of some early press about the Patina Collection, one fashionista apparently dispatched her assistant post-haste to acquire a highlighted Patina Collection necklace.
