OFF THE CUFF

If you think that lace is the sole province of doily-making grannies, you’re sorely mistaken. Cast in recycled gold and silver, antique lace takes on a surprisingly modern and edgy countenance. But it’s only vintage stock that will work for jewelry designer Amanda White, who graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with an M.F.A in jewelry design. The primary reason: “Quality,” she tells Ecouterre. “Most lace today is machine-made with synthetic materials. It acks the craft and detail that is so apparent in vintage lace.”

Cast in recycled gold and silver, antique lace takes on a surprisingly modern and edgy countenance.

Using recycled metals from U.S.-based suppliers, White takes anywhere from a few hours to a few days to make one of her metallic lace cuffs and necklaces. Although her collection is currently only available on Barneys. I think I could hang, but it’s all step by step.”
