There are some things you and Gran Gran will never see eye to eye on.
You won’t convince her that texting is an appropriate form of flirting, and she’ll never sell you on nude hose.
Designer Danielle Teller bridges the generation gap with Adoura Demode, her reconstructed vintage jewelry line.
By mixing unusual finds with new hardware, Teller gives Granny’s forgotten baubles a fun, modern look. Cameos and family crest charms lose their stuffiness when dangled from hoop earrings. A kitschy telephone ornament makes a great conversation piece when hanging around your neck.
Multiple strands of textured chains transform four-leaf clovers, pineapples, and picture frames (without the pictures) from old-fashioned to oh-so-chic. Other standouts include patriotic eagle necklaces, bold geometric pendants, and a riotous gold tassel fitted with rings and beads.
Most of the pieces are one-of-a-kind, so you won’t have a hard time feeling like you’re extra special.
That’s where you and Granny will always agree.
