Vintage modern: Elva Fields

Since I first discovered Elva Fields, I've been a little obsessed with their beautiful vintage retro-fitted pieces. Combining old vintage jewellery to make pieces that are fresh and playful but still tell an old story of classic, timeless style. While I'm not really opposed to jewellery of any sort, I love that these pieces are using old or reclaimed jewellery pieces, not only adding to their uniqueness but making them a greener choice too.

My two favourite pieces -"As Sweet" - two vintage chains combined with a vintage Monet rose brooch and "Hat Trick" - two beautiful vintage hat pins from the 1920s combined with a thick swag of vintage Vogue chains for a look that's thoroughly modern.


"As Sweet"

"Strike it Rich"
"Hat Trick"


"Tangled up in Gold"




"Token Talismans"



While the beauty of vintage one-of-a-kind pieces is that they are absolutely unique, the down-side is that you need to act quickly, as in my case, both pieces were quickly snatched up before I had a chance. Elva Fields has new pieces arriving June 30th, so be sure to visit their site and claim your treasure.
