Have you guys ever visited the Elva Fields website before? If not, get on that! Because, in addition to a truly amazing collection of gorgeous, handmade jewelry, this week you'll also find me. :) (Check me out here!)
It all started a few months ago, when I received an email asking if I would be interested in working with Elva Fields designer Emily Maynard to create a one-of-a-kind necklace. Um, let's just say, I couldn't say "YES" fast enough.
To get started, Emily asked me to create an inspiration board, so I made this Pinterest board filled with a few of my favorite things: the color green, Edwardian and Art Deco jewelry, Victorian images, and more. Then, Emily came back to me, with a very cool selection of possible emerald-green and rhinestone vintage brooches to build the necklace around. I immediately fell in love with a vintage belt buckle and knew that we had to go with that one. I had never seen anything like it and I was in love!
After a bit more back and forth, we arrived at the final look, below. From the cut-glass beads interspersed with tiny, delicate green ones to the fact that it can be worn with the buckle on the side or front and center, I am so, so happy with the final design.
|The final result!|
Thank you so much to Emily for this very cool opportunity. I'm obsessed!!
