Record-Breaking Beauty

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.

Whether you love these beads for their stripe-like style or because they are vinyl sequins repurposed from vintage records in Africa, you'll recognize the beauty in them. Mixing shades of red, blush, yellow, and black and originally from our Fall Collection in 2016, five strands are brought together fabulously by an Art Deco celluloid and rhinestone buckle, arranged in such a way that the clasp may be worn at the side or at back to allow the beads to show off their drape and delight without its help. We're loving the longer length and betting you'll find a reason to put this on repeat in your line-up this season and beyond.  Measures 32" in length.
