Hello Vintage Glassware

Cheers! 

Cheers! 

I am obsessed with glassware. The way the glass dips and curves and the length of the stem...uh! I'm in love. I particularly love a super a razor thin glass. Maybe it's because there's the constant threat of it shattering into a million pieces if you so much as look at it funny. I don't know, but I swoon. Because of my mild obsession with all things glass and all things design, I thought I would look into the most popular styles of each decade from the 1930s to today. Below is a little cheat sheet that we made up. 

The 20s and 30s brought us the coupe, a shallow champagne glass (that easily spills—I've ruined more than one computer this way), the 40s was, for some reason, obsessed with etched glass. The 50s had quirky prints not unlike the 70s, while the 60s were all about convenience and bundles. The 80s had much much worse glasses than the ones pictured but no matter what style during that time, you can bet they were extra gaudy and needlessly over-designed. The 90s used a lot of color blocking and today...today we just gravitate to what we like personally and absolutely take from bygone eras.  

Hello 1920s

Right now, we are in love with the style from the 1920s. Delicate fringe, feathers and long lean frocks. You'll easily find lots of fringed pieces in the shops and plenty of jewelry to compliment the look. See our picks below for our take on the throwback style. 

Drapey is the name of the game. These long chain earrings give a faux-fringe feeling and pair with anything.

Stars were everywhere in the 20s and jut like the era itself, these shooting star earrings are glamorous and decadent.

Again, long and drapey is what our Tara necklace delivers for a look that will sway while they swoon.

Hello EarCuffs

I think it's clear that we, at Samantha House Jewelry, love big bold pieces. But, sometimes it's difficult to drag a heavy pair of earrings around all day at the cost of your sore ears. That's why we're excited about our new ear cuffs. We started with feathers, added some awesome sparkle in the form of faceted quartz and then made them fully adjustable so they fit comfortably on anyone's ears. Voila! An easier, more comfortable way to make a splash!

HELLO ENGLAND!

Our own Lady Katherine hard at work. 

Our own Lady Katherine hard at work. 

A New York-founded company, Samantha House Jewelry has undergone some serious changes in the past year. We've opened up a studio in San Francisco (who ever thought we'd do that?!) and we're just about to launch in England. Why England, you ask? well, because we're not ashamed to admit that we fancy ourselves Anglophiles. And, at this point, we can all be friends, right? Not to mention that one of our favorite people lives across the pond...our pretty little thing, Kate Sims. We call her Lady Katherine because she's pretty chic. 

From here on in, Kate will be the face and the voice of Samantha House Jewelry in the UK and Europe. She's a dynamo when it comes to all things trendy and her social skills are off the charts. She's even our very first (ever) SHJ Style Ambassador. Go Kate!

We're looking forward to seeing all of the stylish things you'll be doing with Samantha House Jewelry. Until then! XO
