On MADE in the Deep South:
MADE in the Deep South jewelry line was created with the idea of making “one-of-a-kind” pieces for women that strive to express their own personal style. We start with vintage and antique pieces that are collected all over the world, some dating back to the 1800s. The vintage pieces are then deconstructed, mixed with other pieces and other materials to create “new,” stand-out jewelry. Every MADE piece is unique and varies in style depending upon the piece itself, and the era it came from. They all have their own history and story to tell. Each MADE piece is adorned with a “story card” that provides its very own biography.
We have been in business 7 years now (can’t believe it)! It all started by accident when I found something bright and shiny in an antique store over Thanksgiving holiday. I was wearing a braided leather cuff at the time and tied the piece on with Kitchen twine! People began stopping me to ask where I bought it and so I sat down to truly figure out how to properly construct them, and the rest is history! I did my first art show with a measly 26 cuffs and in walked my first retailer asking to sell them in her boutique. I expanded into necklaces within 6 months and continuously strive to expand and evolve the line. My goal is to pass on a piece of history with these vintage pieces and make one of a kind jewelry that truly expresses each woman’s personal style. I LOVE the hunt of finding the vintage pieces and creating something “new” with them. When I get the vintage pieces I always wonder – where has each piece been? What has it witnessed and been a part of in the past? How did it’s original owner cherish it and take pride in wearing it? I love knowing I am breathing a new life into them and passing on the history they have already acquired.
I hope you enjoy our special Charlotte trunk show! Fondly, Michela of MADE in the Deep South
