Photo of the Day for December 10, 2011 – Take Me Away! City Charms from Adornments NYC

Martin Lopez is the wonderful creator of Adornments NYC jewelry.  His style is so unique – vintage, slightly Victorian, and elegantly sexy.  And he always has something new in his display.

This past weekend we went to the NewNew Etsy Artisan Group’s Handmade Cavalcade, and we found Martin’s new Luggage Tag Jewelry! He uses real and often vintage coins from countries around the world and pairs them with fire-polished bit of filigree and a symbolic charm or a pearl or gemstone.  He cleverly displays them on luggage tags with the airport codes for each respective city.   You may know I’m a Francophone, so the French franc and three little letters CDG (Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris) on this luggage tag evoke a lot of happy feelings in me.

We saw Martin’s luggage tags for LHR (London Heathrow), BCN (Barcelona El Prat), FLR (Florence), SYD (Sydney), FRA (Frankfurt) and BOM (Mumbai – I wonder if they’ll change their code some day to MUM).

If you have a favorite city in the world, maybe Martin will design a lovely necklace for you!

Find Adornments NYC online and keep in touch on Facebook.  Meet Martin in person this weekend at the Astoria Market’s Columbus Avenue Holiday Pop-Up Market!
