The Brooklyn-born designer began making jewelry as a stress-relieving hobby, building up a loyal following among the creative class. Her storefronts offer a balance of her own creations—under the 1909 label—and a mixed collection of vintage art deco, Victorian and art nouveau pieces. Both locations have the feel of the best kind of flea market, and everything is available at reasonable prices. Her stores have also become destinations for those looking to buy one-of-a-kind engagement rings or wedding bands (and not to file for bankruptcy afterward).
