Welcome to Summer, friends! I wasn't sure I'd actually be able to pull off any semblance of a "real" collection, since showrooms, markets, trade shows, and travel have been closed these past few months, severely limiting my ability to source materials for the jewelry I love to make. As it turns out (and like so many of us these days) I decided to get creative with the resources I do have, and I've had SO MUCH FUN designing a collection that feels rooted in the traditions of color and craftsmanship here at Elva Fields but also fresh and new - a shift from all of our previous collections, really.

I've rarely been able to create multiples of designs, simply because of the one-of-a-kind nature of the vintage components I typically incorporate, but this time around, I chose beads and materials that are vintage-inspired, but with availability that allows more than one of you to enjoy each design! Yes - all 10 of these Summer styles are small-batch beauties...some created in larger quantities than others, all created with love and joy, and all by hand with heart. 

You'll see glass beads from India, knotted nylon cording, hand-tied tassels, fun glass charms in the shape of fruits and veggies, patterned glass beads from Africa, and even a kiddo-craft-turned-favorite-summer-accessory. It all feels so fun and relevant right now!

The best part? I'll donate $10 of each necklace sold to your choice of among four phenomenal organizations working - each in their own beautiful way - for social justice and equality: The Loveland Foundation, Equal Justice Initiative, the National Bail Fund Network, and Change Today, Change Tomorrow. (You can read and learn a little more about each of them in each product listing in the collection!) 

Thank you for taking the time to see what I've created for you this season, and I hope the designs bring some much-needed uplift and hope to your days. Here's to celebrating life's vibrancy and variety right where we are, friends!
