Elyse moved to beautiful California in 2001. She continued her art by creating original handbags of all shapes & sizes. Selling at stores and fairs in the area, She enjoyed success. However, she ceased this avenue due to detesting the commercial retail market. She enjoys conversing with her customers directly. Currently, Elyse sells her items through her website www.elyseoriginals.com , on ebay, at several boutiques around the USA and now on etsy. Upgrading her equipment, Elyse now employs a Pfaff Expressions Sewing Machine and a Babylock Imagine Overlock Machine (serger). She takes great pride in her work & infuses her soul into every creation. She knows that you'll enjoy your unique piece of wearable art for years to come as much as she enjoyed creating it.
