Vintage Jewelry by Elva Fields

In the spirit of vintage items this week, I bring you gorgeous vintage jewelry by Elva Fields.  Emily Maynard, the designer, has a great sense of color as well as a great eye for pairing vintage brooches and earrings with the right beads and textures. These are definitely statement pieces that want to be noticed!  I also appreciate the descriptions for her pieces since they provide detail of the beads’ origins and sometimes that of the vintage jewel(s) too.

I feel like a kid in a candy store every time Im on her website!

At the After Party (Doesn't this remind you of jelly beans or speckled eggs?  Perfect for dressing up an Easter outfit.)

Some Kind of Shin-Dig (Love the shape of these African glass trade beads!  From far away, this necklace looks like it is made up of woven cords or rope.)
