I've seen the jaw droppingly beautiful necklaces by the US based jewellery label Elva Fields pop up in a few places lately (one of them being Oh Joy), and I just had to investigate further. They are all one of a kind designs, created using vintage and antique pieces that the owner/designer Emily Wheat Maynard hunts down from local and far flung market, auctions and shops.
The ones pictured here are all from the Spring 2010 range and most of them are unfortunately already sold out. Though I'll admit that at around $100-200 they are out of my price range, I just can't get over their unique, timeless elegance. One of these beauties would do wonders for rejuvenating my spring/summer wardrobe!
Another jewellery designer whose work is on my wish list is the British based Alex Monroe. His gold and silver designs are based on nature and the delicate, fragile pieces are so beautifully crafted and whimsical with amazing attention to detail.
