There are many ways to discover vintage items in our local areas. You may find things from thrift stores or antique shops, but at Top Atomic, you can find all your vintage jewelry needs online.
The holiday season is coming, so maybe you’re searching ideas for gifts for friends and family who love vintage items. Melissa Oivanki has got you covered.
Oivanki is the owner of Top Atomic and a lover of anything vintage. She was a photographer by trade, but in 2014, her friend closed down her store and Oivanki purchased her items and started making jewelry. Oivanki got to work and opened her online shop on Etsy.
Her crafted jewelry ranges from the 1930s to the 1990s which gives the shop a lot of variety. Her shop includes bracelets, earrings, rings, pins, necklaces, accessories, hair jewelry, jewelry sets and some items for men.
Oivanki said her most popular jewelry are from the ‘70s and ‘80s. A costume designer from the Netflix original “GLOW,” a show based in the ‘80s, purchased Oivanki’s items for the show. Making vintage jewelry has always been a nostalgic process for Oivanki.
“I’ve always loved everything vintage, and I grew up in the ‘80s. A lot of this stuff is nostalgic for me,” Oivanki said.
Oivanki sells vintage dead stock, which means she gets unused items from a warehouse. She finds jewelry that was popular for the decade it was made in. Also, Oivanki appreciates how eco-friendly it is.
“I think it’s better to refurbish things and not contribute to more waste,” Oivanki said.
She also sees stores copy styles from the ‘60s or ‘70s, but most of these items are mass produced and contribute to the increase of waste.
If you’re looking for holiday-themed jewelry, Oivanki has what you need. She has 600 pieces listed for holidays such as Christmas and Valentine’s Day. She also has jewelry for weddings.
Oivanki ships all over the country, and she tries to ship products to customers as quickly as possible. Her price ranges from $5 to $30, but the average price is usually $12 to $15. Oivanki has items such as sterling silver, copper, brass and gold.
Top Atomic is an eco-friendly way to buy accessories that will complement all of your holiday outfits.
