• Save These Dates!

    With the hopes of moving onward and upward in this new year (and not just with a trite statement - doing the work along the way, too) I'm stirring up some beauty and fun in the studio for goodness and joy that we can actually put on the calendar!

    Our first Elva Awesome sale of 2021 kicks off on Wednesday January 20th and will feature some STUNNING handcrafted items from a team of jewelers in India that was due to arrive in December, but missed our holiday releases when shipments were delayed. The sale will also have happy hinting-at-Valentine's designs, some really great vintage finds from recent estate sales and auctions, and all at amazing prices. Join me then (9pm EST on the @elvaawesome on Instagram) if surprises, fast-paced-but-all-in-good-fun bidding, and evening shopping are your jam.

    Early next month, on Wednesday February 3rd, I'll launch the very first collection of 2021 on this website! I don't want to give too much away, but look for some really fun designs in a new-to-me material (SOOOO excited for this!) that will be PERFECT for kiddos OR for the kid-at-heart, a small-batch or two of gorgeous gemstone earrings, sweet nothings for yourself or your favorite peeps in time for Valentine's Day (most under $25!), a few joyful ju-jus, and, as always, some one-of-a-kind Elva necklaces!

    Thanks for following along and hope to see you in the coming weeks for the lovelies I have in store for you. Keep your chin up, beautiful friends, and see you soon!

    XO Emily
