It’s A Wonderful Life With The Elva Fields For C Wonder Jewelry Collection
Our favorite Kentucky-based jewelry designer, Emily Maynard, whose Elva Fields line incorporates vintage beads, pendants, brooches, crystals, and natural stones, has joined forces with New York City-based boutique C. Wonder, creating a line of limited-edition pieces exclusively for the quirky retailer, which is known for being a veritable treasure trove of rare, sparkly, and colorful buys.
The Elva Fields for C. Wonder collection, available at the C. Wonder flagship store (72 Spring Street at Crosby Street), features pieces ranging in price from $18 to $298. Though the entire collection isn't available online yet, we did spot the Resin Hammered Bangles ($48 each at CWonder.com), pictured second from top, at the store's newly launched e-commerce site. Made of glossy resin with hinged, hammered gold circle closures, these stackable bracelets are available in ivory, coral, black, green and navy and were designed exclusively for C. Wonder.
Also adorable and inexpensive: the bug stud earrings shown third from top, which combine a round coral orange bead (used to resemble the insect's head) and a faceted, teardrop-shaped smoky blue stone (used for the body) and feature etched, gold-plated wing details, antennae, and legs. Retailing for $38, these insect earrings are anything but pests.
And, of course, those who fancy Maynard's statement necklaces will swoon over such pieces as the black-and-white beaded necklace pictured above (retailing for $148), which features an antique floral brooch for added flair. We love how the use of chunky Life Savers-shaped beads makes the necklace feel like a posh version of the candy necklaces so many of us wore as precocios children, while the black-and-white pattern creates a harlequin effect and the floral accent adds a dynamic vibe thanks to its starburst-like shape.
