Welcome to Elan Brady, a unique line of handmade, one-of-a-kind jewelry incorporating a wide variety of gemstones juxtaposed with sterling silver and 14k gold fill, and mixed-metal chains.

I have always had a passion for jewelry, and while in high school started my first business by buying unique pieces from Native Americans in New Mexico (one of them I remember fondly “Ugly Otter”) and retailing those at various markets. At the age of 21 I opened my first spa and for the past 11 years I have spent my time building an international spa brand.

After a decade of creating escapes for guests throughout the country, I have found mine – making jewelry.

Welcome to Elan Brady, a unique line of handmade, one-of-a-kind jewelry incorporating a wide variety of gemstones juxtaposed with sterling silver and 14k gold fill, and mixed-metal chains.

I have always had a passion for jewelry, and while in high school started my first business by buying unique pieces from Native Americans in New Mexico (one of them I remember fondly “Ugly Otter”) and retailing those at various markets. At the age of 21 I opened my first spa and for the past 11 years I have spent my time building an international spa brand.

After a decade of creating escapes for guests throughout the country, I have found mine – making jewelry. I love finding unique gemstones and creating interesting statement pieces by mixing those gemstones with different industrial metals. This combination creates a stunning piece that can be worn with t-shirts and jeans or the little black dress and handed down throughout the generations.

I have a loving husband of 10 years who encourages my jewelry-making passion and two boys Eli (4) and Ethan (3) who love to make jewelry beside me each day. In fact, that’s where the name Elan Brady originated…it is a combination of my two son’s Eli and Ethan and my middle name “Brady”. I get my creativity from my mom who is an incredible interior designer and has taught me the principles of contrast, colors and texture that I incorporate into my design. Another unique aspect of her style is that she specializes in Feng Shui and I also have learned incorporate this into my design by thinking about the meaning behind the stones and intentionally pairing the gemstones.

My husband and I have a passion for teenagers and support a local non-profit organization called One Retreat that works with struggling teens to get them on the right track. Every time you buy a piece of Elan Brady Jewelry, know that a portion of your funds are going to help this organization.

I love being a mom, wife, CEO and jewelry designer. I also love Etsy and it is my first stop when I am shopping for myself or someone else. I’m excited to have an Etsy shop and I am so happy that you visited Elan Brady today!
