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 Holiday Collection in 2017, this ripe and ready beauty remains a classic. A trio of resplendent red strawberries, vintage enameled brooches marked "Original by Robert," are charming and lovely; certainly a reminder of the goodness in life and its abundant delights. Pinned to strands of faceted black onyx beads, we love that the berries may be worn elsewhere (how sweet would the trio be on a cardigan one cool spring evening?) or the beaded strands enjoyed on their own to be your anything-but-basic-black, a wonderful addition to any ensemble. Such versatility is smart AND sweet. Measures 18" in length (shortest strand) with a gilt copper and black glass jeweled clasp at back.
