Ever since Dietch PR first introduced me to her jewelry, I have been a big, big fan of Anna Korte's line, AK Vintage. So, when Dietch told me she'd be hosting a trunk show in San Francisco, I penciled it in my calendar and eagerly awaited meeting the creative mind behind one of my favorite jewelry lines. It was so great spending a Saturday afternoon chatting with Anna and getting to know her. We talked about everything from her life in Portland and the inspiration behind her latest line, to random childhood stories and food. For those unfamiliar with AK Vintage, Anna's handcrafted jewelry is made from sustainable parts, along with vintage leather and other vintage findings. It's amazing how Anna transforms simple geometric shapes into intricate, eye-catching pieces. Another thing that I really love is how each piece has a unique, vintage-charm feel. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more from Anna, and I hope that you will all stop by her site and check out her amazing pieces!
