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.
I adored this fun and funky necklace when we originally made it in 2017 - I remember playfully arranging the polished gemstone and vintage neon orange pendants and delighting in the color combinations. Somehow, six years later, it seemed time for an updated, more streamlined look. I couldn't love this new pairing more if I tried. The vintage double dogwood buckle in matte-finished gold metal makes the most marvelous clasp for matte-finished black onyx and black amber disc beads, keeping the same overall pattern as the 2017 design with its faceted brass beads throughout for hints of golden. Whether the buckle is worn at the side of the strands or at the back of the neck, it's a wonderful look that is all its own. Necklace measures 19" length, shortest strand.
