We plan on spicing things up this year, and have a lot of new concepts that we can't wait to finally share with you all. Keeping to Elizabeth's classic yet modern designs, she plans on debuting new collections in the coming weeks, sure to turn heads & compliment the current styles you know and love (and because we love some mixed layering options that go with your favorite small batch styles!)
New gemstone and color combinations featured in delicate designs that compliment the neckline will accompany the One of a Kind Collection. For example, you can expect to see more bangin' statement pieces like #874, Dendritic and Australian Opal Necklace.
Each one of a kind piece will feature a variety of gemstones that play on different colors, textures and shapes to define and showcase each one's unique qualities.
Now that we're getting over the hump of the cold, dreary months and a hint of spring weather comes through every now and then, it's also the perfect time to start focusing on bright color combinations opposite from the rich jewel-toned and neutral ones we're used to seeing during fall and winter. Expect to see colorful variations of our new favorite gemstone, Rainbow Sapphire, and lots of vibrant accents to compliment that fresh tan and new wardrobe for the season!
Now, we've been hinting for a few months that another batch of ESC: Fine necklaces are in the works, and if you're not familiar with these pieces here's the inside scoop:
Our #1 online best selling products are our gold and silver electroplated shark tooth necklaces. Now imagine them cast in SOLID GOLD, set with diamonds. This collection opens the door to the world of solid gold jewelry. For centuries gold has been a common form of currency and civilizations have based their entire culture around it, from art to royal jewelry to religious rituals. Using solid gold for her jewelry line is a goal Elizabeth always strived to achieve, and this serves as the bridge between her old and new styles.
Every shark tooth in this collection was specifically chosen for its size, shape, and texture, which artist Elizabeth Sarah hand picked from her stash of thousands.
Elizabeth worked with a master jeweler as she learned the techniques applied in this new collection, and once the perfect tooth was chosen that best represented the idea she had for each style, she learned the process of making it into a mold. After the mold is set, it's then cast in 14K gold.
The solid gold tooth picks up the natural imperfections and distinct features of the tooth - such as graininess of the root or curve of a fang.
We work with Mother Nature versus against her. What some people may see as flaws, we see as fingerprints, and we highlight these individual characteristics to show off their genuine beauty.
Each one of a kind necklace is thoughtfully intended to compliment not only the person wearing it but also celebrate the wonderful ocean at our backyard and forever close to our hearts.
In addition to the solid gold & diamond shark tooth necklaces, you can find solid gold Herringbone Necklaces in multiple sizes within the Fine Collection, a perfect extra layer to any necklace set.
Not only are we making your mermaid dreams come true with adding more styles to the Fine Collection, but a brand new batch of electroplated exotic sea shells are in the works, too!
While we like to keep it local to Florida and our teams travels when it comes to seashell, shark tooth and sea glass necklaces, we just couldn't pass up these shells that were handed down by Elizabeth and Philip's relatives - but at least we're still keeping it in the family right?!
And these shells I'm talking about aren't just from a road trip a few hours south. From the South Pacific to the Indian Ocean, to the Mediterranean & Caribbean, these stunning sea shells feature natures most beautiful and mesmerizing colors and shapes.
Of course we don't want to spill the beans (we just love to keep ya on your toes if you haven't noticed) but within this new collection there will be both simplistic and gemstone adorned seashell pieces. Since we want to compliment everyone's personal style you'll find necklaces in both gold and silver, long and short, too! As always, we recommend wearing these pieces with other complimentary styles for a one of a kind layered look!
These new pieces are expected to be ready just in time for you to start shopping for Valentine's Day! With the holiday a month away, it's the perfect time to pick out one of a kind creations for your loved ones and treat them to the special gift of handmade jewelry.
In addition to our new shop hours you can also find us at various pop ups around town that support small business and local artisans alike. Upcoming are two pop ups at Royal Palm Wine and Tapas in Atlantic Beach on Friday January 14th and February 4th, from 5-9pm.
We will also be setting up at North Beaches Art Walk Thursday January 20th from 5-9pm. Come out and enjoy dinner at "the corner" and shopping our unique handmade jewelry for this monthly event.
Our team is here to help! Whether shopping online or in person we are readily available for styling questions, and have a wide knowledge of materials and options for all tastes and budgets.
