Judith Altman Designs Introduces Vintage Collection at High Point Market

The discovery of a cache of naturally aged vintage chains, originally used by the famous European fashion designers of the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, was a powerful inspiration for North Carolina jewelry designer, Judith Altman. A serendipitous contact made at a jewelry supply show resulted in a collection of vintage-accented copper, brass and gold chains and pendants to be introduced at the Fall High Point Market as The Patina Collection.

“When I found these chains and learned of their provenance, I wanted to create fashion-forward designs that enhanced their vintage appeal. I have embellished them with swinging tassels and semi-precious gems and pearls creating long, layered silhouettes in tune with today’s hottest look. The response has been overwhelming, and I anticipate that this Collection will quickly sell out at Market.” Altman added that as a result of some early press about the collection, one woman dispatched her assistant post-haste to acquire a highlighted Patina Collection necklace.

Judith Altman Designs returns for the third time to Suites at Market Square in a new space, I-733. Her signature collection has been expanded to include many new designs with a more delicate appeal, in addition to the boldly dramatic pieces that have become her trademark. “There are many life occasions when the subtlety of a softer statement is desired, so I have evolved the scope of my collection to include a choice of smaller, understated pieces.”

Sasanqua Spa at Kiawah Island, SC and the newly opened Four Seasons Hotel in Westlake Village, California are among the latest galleries, boutiques and museums across the country offering this distinctive collection.
