Now's a great time to check drawers and jewelry boxes for that cherished family heirloom you've never found time to or interest in wearing and turn it into something fresh and fun that you can enjoy. (Better yet, a gift for generations ahead to wear and adore!)
Our custom mail-in kits are 50% off through Sunday, allowing you to begin the design process with us in plenty of time for holiday gift-giving. (Ordinarily, the kits are $100, which serves as your deposit toward a made-especially-for-you jewel that incorporates (or transforms!) your vintage heirloom.)
Read more about how the process works over here on the blog and see if this might be a fit for something in your jewelry box...we'd love to help create something meaningful and wonderful with you!
Ready to get started ? The kits are available here.
A few favorites from my summer reading list, whether at the beach, on my front porch, or barely keeping my eyes open before bed...and one even through ear buds while I worked away in the studio:
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng - A captivating tale of family dynamics, the interplay of overlapping lives, and the ways we love or fail to. (I listened to this on Audible.)
Beartown by Fredrik Backman - So much more than just a story of hockey, I was riveted by this small town and its beautifully-captured inhabitants.
The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks - Y'all know I love some personal development, and this one was an interesting take on the possibility that we - even inadvertently - prevent ourselves from enjoying the best that life has to offer us.
The Garden of Small Beginnings by Abbi Waxman - Such a warm-hearted, sweet story of an endearing single mother and her people - newly-found and newly-appreciated.
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah - I'm still listening to this one during school drop-offs and am fascinated by Noah's stories of growing up with an entirely different experience than my own. I know very little about South Africa and appreciate so much learning from his perspective.
Happy reading / listening!
Friends, we'll be kicking off the upcoming season with a sneak peek of some of our Pre-Fall designs, and a chance to pre-order a few of our favorites! What does this mean exactly? Well, the full collection (of one-of-a-kind Elva necklaces) launches next month, but NEXT WEEK on August 29th, we'll be sharing what we've affectionately dubbed our "Fall Smalls," including bracelets, earrings, and necklaces made of a new-to-us material! (Can you guess from the image above???)
We can't wait to share the fun with you and hope you'll swing by at noon EST next Wednesday for our latest lovelies. Orders placed on those Pre-Fall goodies will ship on September 12th with the debut of the full collection, so be sure to reserve your top picks before they sell out (we have a feeling they may go fast!)
See you then, friends!
Wednesday, August 29th
