Kay Adams Jewelry Internship


Hello! This summer, I'm lucky enough to be interning (one day a week) at Anthill Antiques for Kay Adams. For those of you who aren't from Richmond or aren't familiar with Anthill Antiques/Kay Adams Jewelry, Anthill Antiques is the cutest, quirky shop specializing in vintage & antique accessories in Carytown. Anthill Antiques is run by Kay Adams and her mother, Judy. Kay Adams also designs and produces her own statement necklaces that she sells in the shop. Even though I've only interned two days in her shop so far, I can already tell that the experience that I gain this summer will be invaluable. So far, I've helped with visual merchandising of the jewelry, working with creating chains for necklaces and learning how the shop operates. 

Oh and I helped Kay start her own Instagram page for the shop! Her Instagram page is going to showcase the interior of her shop, her store cat and the gorgeous necklaces she creates. She has an incredible selection of breathtaking necklaces that are comparable to pieces of art. The detail, the thought and the creativity that goes into each individual necklace is phenomenal. Check her designs out on Instagram @kayadamsjewelry and give her a follow.

For the look above, I styled one of her necklaces with my martini print dress. I borrowed this Kay Adams necklace from my mom and love the quirky flamingo and carefree summer feeling of the necklace. I styled the necklace with two smaller necklaces for an even bolder statement. To emphasize the pinks and greens in the Kay Adams necklace, I paired it with my pink, green & black vintage martini print dress. Round sunglasses and a vintage golden bracelet pulled the whole look together.
