Add a little pizzaz to your holiday attire with orGLAMic baubles from handmade jewelry line Elva Fields.  Since 2003, designer Emily Wheat Maynard has scoured local and far-flung markets, auctions, and shops for unusual vintage and antique pieces.  The treasured finds are then reconfigured and incorporated in unexpected, timeless designs that are sure to make any orGLAMic reader squeal with delight.  The earrings pictured above are made of faceted vintage brass beads clustered together to create a big and bold look to any outfit.  Personally, I think they would look great with a black cowl neck sweater and jeans combo and hair in a casual, messy updo.  Click here to browse the collections for orGLAMic finds, or here to locate a local retailer near you.
