Well, did you click over to Lilah Vintage yet? Come on now, what are you waiting for? Late last month, I had the privilege of interviewing Amanda Trentham, the creative mind behind this vintage-inspired collection. It’s a great read. You’ll remember this:
The mid century beads you see on each necklace and earrings were made by a European designer from the 1940’s through the early 1960’s. In that time the designer disappeared and the entire collection was lost for decades. The beads were just recently found buried in a factory.”

I spoke to Amanda again yesterday. While we were talking about her collection she gave me a killer quote that I just have to share:
“It really shows in your work when you make things you really do love.”
Isn’t that the truth? Reminds me of the Handmade Manifesto, which I just realized is missing from my sidebar! While I run off to fix my mess, here are a few more pieces from Amanda’s collection.
Thanks to Amanda for making such beautiful things. The LAB wishes her nothing but great success with the wonderful collection.
