“At the center of everything is color.” – Elle
Jewelry designer, Elizabeth “Elle” Willits garners inspiration for her pieces through her life long love of the unique. She has been inspired by a childhood among the eclectic culture of the American Southwest, and been touched by the wild shapes and colors seen throughout the landscapes of the Land of Enchantment. As a child, she collected interesting rock specimens and was infatuated with the strong history of turquoise and silver Native American jewelry.
As a young adult, her passion for jewelry was pushed to the forefront when her future husband suggested she find her engagement ring stone, which started a wild ride into the world of colorful gemstones. From there, history wrote itself.
Having studied culinary arts, pastry, psychology, sociology and art history, Elle aspires to evoke feelings from the wearer with the attention to detail in each piece. Her goal is to encapsulate her love for classic wearable pieces together with unconventional feminine twists.
Arresting. Ebullient. Passionate.
