Doubly Lucky

Elva Fields

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.

We left this necklace in its original style, layout, and pristine condition since it came from our Spring Collection just two years ago in 2021. There's just something about stripes, and when they appear on African glass beads, consider us smitten. (And in pale blue on orange ground? Yes, please, and thank you.) As if this trio of strands could be any more appealing - we added a pair of vintage golden clovers to double down on the fun, the luck, and the all-around awesome factor. The brooches, each a textured style (though not matching, which makes it all the more charming!) by Giovanni and measuring approximately 2" width. Necklace measures 24" length, shortest strand, with etched and gilt copper toggle clasp at back. (Though we LOVE pairing stripes with other playful patterns - even other stripes per our photo - this one would be just as amazing with a plain tee. You do you, sister.)
