absolutely LOVE the pieces from Elva Fields Jewelry…
it’s fun, one of a kind, and can give a basic tshirt an automatic punch of cool.
besides, who can resist antique pieces with a new spin. not i.
a little on Emily Wheat:
Owner/designer Emily Wheat Maynard quickly discovered a passion for the history of jewelry in her graduate work at The Bard Graduate Center for Decorative Arts, Design, and Culture in New York City. Her Masters thesis explored the relationship between Italian Renaissance and ancient Greek and Roman jewelry, which inspired a semester at the Jewelry Arts Institute in Manhattan.
Emily scours local and far-flung markets, auctions, and shops for unusual vintage and antique pieces to use in all three of the Elva Fields lines—Elva, June, and Deb—which are named for the artist’s great-grandmother, grandmother, and mother, respectively.
In the spirit of the women who inspired Elva Fields Jewelry and its namesake lines, 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.
