Elizabeth Raffel's Profile
Born in New York and raised near Toronto, Ont., I've lived in Louisiana since 1989 and love it. Great people and great food! I started designing jewelry in 2006 after years of designing and making my own clothes. My inspiration comes from choosing beads in colors and shapes that I would like to work with and then going where they lead me. I rarely make the same thing twice. I’m particularly attracted to intense colors, and sleek shapes. Among Swarovski crystals, I use cuts and colors that are not generally available in retail outlets.
