Who are Ella & Tess?

The names Ella & Tess are a play on the word Tessella, which is a small piece in mosaic art – a piece that makes up the big picture. To me, splitting Tessella into two names symbolizes the different - and sometimes totally opposite - sides of myself.

I love the crisp look of East Coast wool and silk just as much as the soft comfort of Southwestern denim and leather. A sports bar is as appealing to me as a candlelit dinner. Dickens sits on my bookshelf right next to Evanovich. And my music collection is all over the map.

My designs reflect these differences. I have pieces that are whimsical and just for fun, as well as those that are more serious, even elegant. I think of Ella as my laughter and Tess as my serious side. But I’ll let you decide which designs are which.
