Dyed vintage handkerchiefs, buttons, beads and thread. 

Inspiration:

The mango is a fruit resembling an apple, and of the size of a man’s fist; both the rind and the fruit itself are yellow. It tastes a little like turpentine, but loses this taste more and more the riper it gets. This fruit is of the best description; it is full and juicy, and has a long, broad kernel in the middle. The bread and mango trees grow to a great height and circumference. The leaves of the former are about three feet long, a foot and a-half broad, and deeply serrated; while those of the latter are not much larger than the leaves of our own apple-trees.”

The Ida’s Travels Jewelry Collection was inspired by passages from Ida Laura Pfeiffer’s first book, A Woman’s Journey round the World, which was first published in 1850. Ida was an Austrian traveler/explorer and popular travel book author. She was educated, industrious, fearless, and she had a great sense of humor. The Ida’s Travels Jewelry Collection was made for a strong, well cultured woman that naturally stands out in a crowd. Each piece in this collection is a one-of-a-kind handmade work of art that was fashioned by NY artist Sarah Schrift. Schrift uses vintage, repurposed and found materials to create accessories for fashionistas, artists, actors, musicians and forward thinkers.
