When I stumbled upon the jewelry of Elva Fields this weekend via the fantastic blog Simple Song I just about died and went to heaven! Designer Emily Wheat Maynard’s statement pieces are colorful combinations of new and vintage which she combines to create bona fide works of art. She’s divided her creations into three collections—Elva, June, and Deb—named after her great-grandmother, grandmother and mother. How gosh darn cute is that? Did I mention everything is made at the artist’s home studio in Kentucky? I want to move to there and be her apprentice. No, really.
Stressed out over what to wear?

Gorgeous! I love the blue beaded necklace.
Oh, and if I do order those magnetic chandelier crystals, I’ll definitely share “after” photos!
Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita says
Very nice! It reminds me of some of my grandmothers things I remember her wearing when I was younger!

I love her jewelry. I’ve had her site in my bookmarks for awhile now because she sells out so quickly!
Rachel Dangerfield says
Wow… these are positively gorgeous! Any of these would make a little black dress look smokin! And classy of course…!
I love the yellow one and the blue one! Gorgeous!
Ah. I need one!

Kelly Anne says
Oh, I love the bold colors of the beads! They make the sparkles seems like the toy in the cereal box.
umm…that black one is delish!!
I LOVE THEM. I want the 2 in the middle sooo badly! love love love
Went to her site and they are both sold out! I guess I’m not the only one who loves them :)
I love these necklaces. There’s something so wonderfully glamorous and old-fashioned about them…very Jackie O. They all need cute dresses and smart shoes.
Your finds make me swoon, Kate.

This jewelry is so up my alley! Thank you for introducing it to me. Where in Kentucky does the artist live. Would love to know being from there. Hope you have a great week. I’m sending you questions this week. Sorry I haven’t done it sooner. Busy, busy, busy but so good.

So glad these were a hit! I too was saddened by the alarming number that are sold out : (

Lynn Byrne says
Thought you would want to know. I read my blogs via Google Reader and for some reason your pics never show up there (I get the evil blue ? mark). I can go to your site and see them, but I don’t have that problem with my other blogs.
the NEO-traditionalist says
Lynn—Thank you for telling me this! I’ll have to look into it asap and find a remedy! Hmmmm…
Staley Mc says
Love these. Want all of them!
Emily Maynard says
You’re hired! We’re working on increasing our production, so we need all the help in the studio we can get! Thanks so much for the feature and LOVED learning about your fantastic blog. (And thanks to all of you for visiting Elva Fields online, too!)
