It’s no secret we love a good vintage find. But, unfortunately, we don’t always put in the necessary effort to uncover those truly extraordinary pieces that make or break a getup. Thankfully, L.A.-based Ax+Apple, with designer Jamie Lyn at the helm, is doing all the work for us, curating a collection of baubles that mixes vintage elements – like world coins, various men’s pocket-watch chains, and pen knives – with a contemporary eye.
