Erica Weiner jewellery is an eclectic mix of vintage inspired pieces like the Be Prepared Bear or unique one-off vintage pieces and the shop, on Elizabeth Street, is a once of those places where you could browse for hours finding new bits of treasure. It's well worth a visit if you are in NY - especially if, like me, you want to seek out local designer-makers,
These 1970s vintage Sweetheart Necklaces can be customised with your own message (allow 3 to 4 weeks for delivery). It is truly shocking to realise that the decade of your birth, the 70s, is now classed as 'vintage'.
A vintage heart shaped locket.
