From one of our favorite customer's beloved and extensive collection of Elva necklaces, a group of nearly 20 necklaces returned to our studio to be Re-Vintaged now that this lovely lady is downsizing and more selective in what she is able to wear. Many of her necklaces have never been worn and remain in immaculate condition (most still featured their original hand-written and hand-tied tags!) Of offering this batch of necklaces, our client says, "I am thrilled with the thought that my pieces may go to someone who will treasure them as I do the ones I wear. It had bothered me for years that [some of] my 'beauties' sat in a drawer, not worn, not enjoyed. I did love looking at them and admiring their creativity. But, now I hope someone else can wear and cherish them. My students always loved my necklaces; sometimes I got their attention when they commented. I loved that! But, now retired and with no one to leave my jewelry to, I am pleased to know it will be in the hands ( necks ) of others." It feels especially meaningful to share this client's collection on the occasion of our 20th birthday, as she has been along for the ride for more than half of that journey, and we are grateful for her encouragement, support, and kindness through all of these years.
Borrowing a pair of rhinestone brooches from another Re-Vintage design (check out their original necklace home in our Archives here!) we swapped out the vintage carved black resin buckle from this necklace that originally appeared in a Winter Collection in 2016. Though the black buckle was a fantastic clasp for beads of vibrantly-hued fire agate, we wanted to update the strands with a bit of sparkle, and these two gems seemed the perfect pairing, especially with a vintage rhinestone clasp at back that allows lengths ranging from to 18 to 19" overall.
