Informed by the vintage American fashion and the influence of Art Deco and Art Nouveau, Karyn Cantor founded Classic Hardware in order to distribute her original designs that bridged the gap between class and sass. Born and raised in Los Angeles, jewelry designing came naturally to Karyn, she created her first line as a teenager in the early 80's LA Punk Rock scene. Thrift shore finds such as rosary beads, jewelry parts and fishing lures were repurposed into bold statement pieces her and her friends would wear out to punk shows at places like the Whisky on Sunset. Whether your tastes lean more the modern or you have a hankering for retro chic, you are guaranteed to find something among InkedShop.com’s collection of Classic Hardware products that will suit your needs.
