DIRTY LIBRARIAN CHAINS Vintage Jewellery

What makes Dirty Librarian Chains stand out is that designer Susan Domelsmith knows avant-garde fashion can be sustainable. Her collection is founded on a zero waste design model and ensures the production of every piece utilizes USA made materials dating from the 1960’s to the 1980’s. Referencing the surroundings of her NYC home base, Domelsmith incorporates bold retro-futuristic structures into her jewelry designs. The collection is continually evolving, but throughout the years it has retained the same distinct eye-catching playfulness as when she started DLC in 2004.
Her collection has been seen many times on the runway during New York Fashion Week as well as featured in countless publications including British Vogue, Elle, NY Magazine, Huffington Post, WWD, and Teen Vogue. Her distinct collection has gained many celebrity followers, and her pieces have been worn by Jessica Alba, Eve, Anne Hathaway, Debbie Harry, Kate Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Princess Superstar and Emily Deschanel.
For nearly a decade, her work has been at the forefront of the sustainable fashion jewelry movement and has offered alternatives to inspire others to also think about the issue of wasteful fast fashion manufacturing. Domelsmith continues to spread her sustainable expertise by teaching zero waste designing. She fosters creativity in other aspiring designers through teaching apprenticeships as well as offering workshops where her students learn the basics of jewelry making and create new pieces from their own meaningful treasures and heirlooms. For the diy-phobic, Susan also works with clients to design custom jewelry using unworn pieces from their own jewelry boxes.
Dirty Librarian Chains is celebrating nine years of handmade sustainable jewelry and wants to thank you for your continuing support!
