Neck Candy

My son Leighton has a thing for candy jewelry. He could care less about wearing it, of course, but he loves to bite off those chalky pastel pieces. 

My taste in jewelry is a little different. One day, I'm going to treat myself to a necklace from Elva Fields. Designer Emily Maynard (who named the line after her great-grandmother) scours flea markets for vintage brooches, pins and shoe buckles, then repurposes them into these gorgeous, statement making pieces.

Everything is either limited edition or one-of-a-kind, so if you see something you like, you better bite fast!
