Friends come and go, drifting in and out of your life as you change schools, move to new cities, begin new jobs, and just grow up, plain and simple. But it’s always fun when you reconnect with an old friend. I’ve known my friend Chelsea since we were 14 and spent the summer together at sleep away camp. We’ve kept in touch on and off since then, and reconnected once more when she moved to LA about a year ago.
At the end of August 2013, Chelsea started a wonderful online jewelry business called Jewelry Wanderlust through Etsy. She is a 5th generation jeweler, and her collection offers the largest selection of antique and vintage jewelry in Southern California.
Since I love jewelry (what girl doesn’t?!), I recently got together with Chelsea to browse her jewelry and try on a few pieces. I loved her collection so much and thought it would be fun to share it with all of you! Below are some of my favorites…
