New Orleans born and bred, Samantha Jackson--the designer behind Heavenly Vices--takes inspiration from the beauty and history of her hometown. Her pieces reflect the blend of old and new, various customs from combined cultures and the symbolic and spiritual reference that permeate daily life in New Orleans. A random discovery of antique love tokens from the 19th century -– actual currency that people took to jewelers to be engraved with names, nicknames, images, and bon mots –- became the centerpiece of her collection, reviving a lost world of sentiment, symbolism and history
