ACCESSORIES WONDER: C. Wonder’s first designer accessories venture will hit stores next week. The month-old retailer has tapped Emily Maynard of Elva Fields to create a collection of about 20 pieces of jewelry that include earrings, necklaces, shoe clips and bracelets. Prices range from $18 for a pair of bug studs to $148 for a coral, beaded multistrand necklace with gold leaf detailing. Typically, Maynard’s creations start at $150, with necklaces often climbing into the $300 range.
“This was a collaboration in the truest sense of the word,” Maynard told WWD. “We borrowed the fanciful one-of-kind statements from Elva Fields and mixed them with C. Wonder’s love of color, surprise and affordability to create jewelry for women everywhere. It was a whirlwind of fun in the studio for all of us.”
