Elva Fields Love

elva fields necklaces




Two nights ago I saw this designer featured on one of my new favorite blogs Oh Joy!  I absolutely love vintage brooches and wear them a lot in the winter on my coats and sweaters.  I  tend to let them sit idle in the summer because I feel they look a bit heavy and bulky.  However, I think one of these necklaces would look absolutely adorable with a sweet sundress or tank.

Coincidentally, my own grandmother's name was Elva so I went to explore the Elva Fields website to find out where they came up with the name. I knew I had to feature Elva Field's custom jewelry on my blog when I learned that the designer, Emily Wheat, was based in the beautiful southern state of Kentucky.  Don't be fooled though.  She's no backwoods girl just stringing beads.  She earned her graduate degree from The Bard Graduate Center for Decorative Arts, Design, and Culture in New York City.  The other thing that is extra special about Elva Fields jewelry is that a portion of every online purchase is donated to Backpack Buddies of Spencer County, a program providing school-age children in the company’s local rural community of Taylorsville, Kentucky with healthy meals and snacks each weekend of the academic year.  What a great cause!  If you like these pieces and want to see more, hop over to Elva Fields and check it out.  She also has a collection of beautiful earrings.
