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.
From our Summer Collection in 2016, this bold red and white beauty has been refreshed and renewed with a re-stringing and a new gilt copper clasp. With an elephant's memory, let's not forget that, sometimes in life, the littlest moments can sometimes mean the most; just as the smallest details can become the biggest inspirations. Though we weren't quite sure how we'd use them, we fell instantly for a collection of vintage red glass elephants at an outdoor flea market this spring, charmed by their tiny size and auspicious upturned trunks. A few minutes later, we discovered a collection of vintage red and white glass beads from a collector's estate, and we knew we'd found the perfect pairing. Combining the finds, and adding some polished white quartz and a gilt copper clasp to complete the look, it all comes together in an unforgettable way. Measures a flattering longer length of 27" overall.
