Vintage Find: Clock Ring

I have been carefully documenting my love for vintage jewelry and the finds are as treasurable as the journey I often stumble upon finding these unique, pieces. Lunching in the suburbs one spring day I came across Re.Defined (115 E.Station St. Barrington, IL) (website coming soon) a store that makes you look twice when you are coasting through quiet Barrington with manequins posing in antique finds and worn leather suitcases propped up against the aged models posing on the sidewalk. Their scarves blowing in the wind it mocked  the boutique found in "The Sweetest Thing."

To my surprise this little gem is shared by other fashion lovers, like hometown designer, Cynthia Rowley. The store utilized every square centimeter with glasses, clothing, jewelry, handbags and everything in between.
 The store's owner does a lot of searching herself for great finds and embellishes the vintage finds with a modern, artisitc trend including one of my favorite styles; steampunk. Her knowledge and artistic view on vintage is bar none. Turning a floor length, polyester, patterned gown into two mini skirts is just one of the very modern  take on vintage you will find here.
