Keep Her Posted

Whether it was the razzle-dazzle of the Big Apple or the romance of a gondola ride along the Grand Canal, storied American and European cities have always attracted travelers with their unique charms, and they continue to do so to this very day. Artist Susan Rodgers celebrates the enchantment of the Grand Tours of yesteryear with her vintage-inspired pendants featuring postmarks taken from vintage postcards. Embossed with the date stamped onto postcards dating back to the late 1800s, each of Susan's sterling silver pieces provides a glimpse of a bygone era and the voices of travelers from centuries past.

Each handmade charm comes with a copy of the original postcard from which the postmark was taken and a story card describing the history of each authentic, historic correspondence. Together, these timeless pieces capture the essence of adventure, the excitement felt when exploring a new city, and the sentimental ties we have with our homes and our most cherished travel spots. Handmade in the New York.

Sold individually.

Susan is a self-taught silversmith. Following many months to recover from a car accident, Susan then spent many years in an unintended career. Taking a job in the insurance field to pay her medical expenses and buy a car became decades of doing work that caused Susan to crave anything to express her creative self. This passion was difficult to deny, coming from a family of artisans. After working in various art forms she finally found her true expressive medium - creating jewelry. Susan’s love of nature is reflected in her jewelry designs. Inspired by the nature preserve behind her home, each branch design is replicated in sterling silver. This secret haven is a constant fountain of inspiration, with each season a new gift from nature presenting itself for Susan’s designs.
