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.
This gem originally appeared in our 2015 Holiday Collection and features a face-off of fashionable finesse: a pair of vintage zebras showing their stripes most stylishly in a vintage buckle by Mimi di N from 1976. Their glossy black enamel decoration is echoed in four strands of faceted black chalcedony, glamorously glittering with gilt brass beads in the mix as well. Choose to wear the clasping pair at the side, for a whimsical, wonderful look, at front center, or at back to allow the beads to enjoy the stylish spotlight. Measures 19" in length, shortest strand.
