Have you ever noticed that almost every single fashion magazine will invariably run a feature on how to travel light without sacrificing style? You take a handful of basic wardrobe pieces, sprinkle in a couple pairs of shoes, two handbags and a few key accessories and voila! Your travel style is chic, easy, and you can fit it all in a carry on! I don’t know about you, but I struggle. It seems traveling light still entails far more accouterments than a two page spread in a glossy mag would lead you to believe. Except for one part: accessories. I am a firm believer that simple and elegant jewelry when traveling is a must.
Enter Amanda Thon and her shop Amanda Thon Metalsmith. Her gorgeously sophisticated line of jewelry translates from a casual dinner in your own backyard to a stroll through the streets of Crete with a gorgeous stranger on your arm. (Carry on.) This is the type of jewelry you reach for when you want to create a memory. It so simply fits into your life it seems as if it were there all along. My next vacation? I’m taking the Arrow Band Ring and the Coral Medium Post Earrings and I’ll put those style magazines to shame. Trust.
