MY BACKGROUND: I’ve had a very successful creative career in Product Development working with motivational teachers in business and personal growth. Elle Bernard & Company merges my love of art, my fascination with natural gemstones and my passion for inspiring others.

MY MATERIALS: Gemstones and crystals — with their many sparkling colors and cuts — are not only beautiful, but for thousands of years people from virtually all world cultures have attributed them with energetic properties, mythology, and healing power. Whether you believe these legends or not, there is an undeniable enchantment in the stories of the stones. They are beautiful reminders of the awe-inspiring creative powers of our natural world. And more often than not, my customers are drawn to how pieces "feel" almost as much as how they look.

MY SECRET SAUCE: One of the most distinctive qualities of my gemstone jewelry is its inspirational packaging. When the designs are complete I create a custom tag for every piece, which describes the legendary healing properties of the stones and metals. All of my jewelry comes beautifully wrapped in a box or pouch — ready to give as a meaningful and uplifting gift or personal pick-me-up. When someone wears Elle Bernard and Company, they are not just wearing a stunning piece of high quality jewelry; they are enveloping themselves in a healing energy.

MY HAPPY PLACE: Nothing makes me happier than creating gorgeous, wearable art using the most interesting-looking and high quality gemstones from all over the world. I handcraft each piece in my studio-by-the-sea in Oceanside, California.

MY MOTIVATION: If you're like me, you're always open to discovering new ways to stay optimistic and energized. I'm a big believer in the power of positive thinking and using affirmative thoughts to improve our lives. It thrills me to provide a product that has the power to encourage and inspire others. Plus, I’ve been an artist since I was a little kid. Making beautiful things is the best therapy on the planet.

MY GOAL: I aim to create and sell elegant, modern designs, that inspire you to meet life’s triumphs and challenges with grace and balance, feeling supported and energized. I want you to look beautiful and to feel inspired, energized, and absolutely cherished!

MY INSPIRATION: I cull my inspiration from the exotic gemstones and precious metals I ¬work with — mined in faraway places that kindle the imagination: Tibet, Australia, Madagascar, Egypt, Afghanistan; and more familiar places like Sedona, Taos, and Emerald Village. I use more than 100 different precious and semi-precious gemstones such as: Turquoise, Amethyst crystals, Rose Quartz, Herkimer Diamonds, Lapis Lazuli, Garnet, Ametrine, Citrine, Jasper, Carnelian, Aventurine, Agate, Amazonite, Kunzite, Chrysoprase, Tourmaline, Iolite, Peridot, Sapphire, Moonstone, Quartz Crystals, Jade, Pyrite, Onyx, Shells, Pearls, Coral, Beach Glass, Wood, Bone, Swarovski Crystals, and many more.

I’m also an avid reader and love the otherworldliness hinted at by17th Century English authors Shakespeare and William Blake. I’ve studied Meditation, Reiki, Shamanism, Space Clearing, Healing Touch, Feng Shui, Hinduism, Astrology and the New Thought Movement. Louise Hay, Catherine Ponder, Florence Scovel Shinn, Wayne Dyer, Paramahansa Yogananda, Ken Blanchard, Wallace Wattles, Anthony Robbins, Emmet Fox and Abraham-Hicks line my bookshelves.

MY PROCESS: When designing a new line of jewelry I look ahead to the coming season and choose stones that reflect the natural beauty of the upcoming season. I then do research into the stones’ legendary healing properties to get a better idea of the energy associated with my choices. As I work toward finalizing the designs, the stones begin to tell their own story.

To execute my designs, I draw on my extensive design background and use hammering, wire-wrapping and stringing techniques with jewelry-making pliers, cutters, crimpers, files, hammers, stampers and other tools. Many of my hoop earrings are hand-formed using a simple shaping cylinder to ensure consistent size. The mediums used in this case are 14K gold-filled, sterling silver, brass, gunmetal and vermeil, chain, wire, beads, clasps, jump rings, headpins and other components.

MY SUPPORT STAFF:
My cat, Max, is a Bronze Egyptian Mau. Having him in the studio helps tremendously. He reminds me to take breaks, treat myself and have fun and playtime every day!

I hope my jewelry, crystals, gemstones and other products inspire you by reinforcing your beliefs and intentions, empowering you to create the amazing future you envision for yourself.

Cherishing You,
Ellen Long
