Longtime readers of Providence Monthly might remember the name Amy Vincent. Amy began freelancing for this mag way back in the ‘90s, first as an illustrator then as a writer. A mom of two, she shared personal – and always offbeat – advice about parenting. “It was essentially blogging way before blogging was even a thing,” she recalls. Time passed, the kids graduated high school and now Amy’s back with her signature wit, this time on jewelry. She teamed up with Traci Maceroni, CEO of East Providence’s Bernardo Manufacturing, to develop her sassy line.
Amy Vincent Design, a fun collection of bangles, necklaces and earrings, debuted last month with an online shop, regular blog series and an exclusive in-store launch downtown at Homestyle (229 Westminster Street). With each piece costing less than $27, the fashion jewelry line was designed and priced with working women in mind. “This isn’t about a gemstone with mystical powers that helps you get through the day. This is for the working girl that is staying late, rushing home to manage her household and reminding them that they’re the ones that are really in charge,” she says. Traci Maceroni agrees, adding “I’m so proud to be involved in something that was created by a working woman to empower all other working women out there with humor, love and friendship.” AmyVincentDesign.com
