Personality

Designing and creativity is a gift that allows me to translate peoples personalities and my own thoughts and feelings in to a work of art

Inspired

Inspiration comes in the form of life and my interpretation of it; from creating pieces inspired by particular journies I have travelled to emotial rollercoasters and challenges that life throws at you.

Travels

I take ideas from everywhere, every journey I take and every person I meet is part of what forms the personality of a design, no matter how simple or wild and translate them into a piece of jewellery.

Forever

Jewellery is the most unique and beautiful thing – it’s something that none of us need but what it can represent and give us can go far above what words and photos can say and thats why I love it – it’s everlasting.

The Bespoke Process

‘Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.’ Greg Anderson
The beauty of the bespoke process is that you are placing your trust in me to create a work of art for you and no one else. It is a truly exciting and beautiful process and the journey we go on is the most important part of creating the final piece.

Every commission that I work on is individual and no piece is ever the same. I ask questions about your ideas but also listen and feel my way through what you are about through getting to know you.

Strong research is a vitally important part of the process, which I follow through with the medium of drawing and painting. I create a series of designs and using a process of elimination we slowly form a final and beautiful design, and then make that vision a piece that literally jumps off the page.

Bringing your design to life

‘You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.’ Walt Disney

I am not a jeweller, but a jewellery artist – my skills lie in translating my own and my clients’ ideas into original illustrations and traditional plan drawings, which describe each design down to the very last detail. I then work closely with handpicked craftsmen to bring my designs to life, either by hand or through computer-aided design (CAD), depending on the nature of the piece.

About Ellie

“Don't let anyone ever dull your sparkle, Life is just too short"

ellieEllie Stickland is a creative and imaginative artist, full of ideas and passion. Having graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2008 and then starting her career working for other designers, she took the decision to go out on her own. First starting out she designed commercial pieces and collaborated with clients to create bespoke pieces, mainly working on engagement rings. After a couple of years Ellie decided to separate her work and created a business dedicated to designing jewellery for others – Eladore. Leaving her to work on her own more creative and conceptual works, her art, sculptures, paintings and designs that aren’t necessarily for wearing but more about the subjects themselves. She creates pieces that are metaphors for life, her understanding of it and exploring subjects that are close to her heart, using subjects that are physical depictions for those emotions and feelings. Ellie still takes on bespoke work however this process is an incredibly personal and magical process where the world is your oyster.

“I have spent the last few years working very hard at creating not only the business and career that I want to live but also the life I want, It has been quite the journey and I am still only just at the beginning. Having now separated my business’, I am very excited about being able to focus more on my art work and over the coming years look forward to sharing the one off pieces of art that I love creating.”

 
 
 
“If there is one thing I have learnt, it is that nothing good comes easy, you have to work hard for what you want in life.
