Desert Solitaire by AK Vintage
The new collection of lovely jewelry from local designer Anna Korte for AK Vintage is now in stock! It's called "Desert Solitaire," inspired by the Edward Abbey book of the same name, and it includes the cool body armor piece pictured above, as well as several minimal necklaces with leather straps, tiny copper bullets and rows of geometric chevrons. Since 2002, AK Vintage has evolved from limited runs of jewelry made from deconstructed vintage necklaces to full collections made from a mixture of authentic vintage parts, recycled leather and castings made locally from one of a kind vintage findings. Inspired by sustainable solutions, production for all AK Vintage pieces are kept local, handmade right here in Portland, OR. Anna draws inspiration from nature's geometry, literature and the history and age of the vintage pieces she incorporates into her designs. Every AK Vintage collection is inspired by Anna’s current favorite poet or piece of literature, largely motivating each collection’s design direction and perspective. We've been carrying her lovely styles for the past few years, and they get better every season! Stop by soon to check out the new collection.
