Empire State Finery was founded by Paige Booker and Alice Trahant in Georgia, the Empire State of the South. Their line of hand crafted necklaces pays homage to their southern heritage and features seemingly disparate elements – from vintage vinyl to salmon vertebrae, boars tusk to bullet shells. It was a joint scouting trip to a local antique market that sealed their fate as business partners. As they perused the stalls of vintage and found objects, they were drawn to the same organic materials and found treasures that were begging to be transformed.

 Their laid back sensibility and easy attitude lends a casual vibe to the line making each necklace an everyday essential.
