Ellen Satkin's Profile
My life has been infused with a love of family, helping people, and creating beautiful things. I grew up and attended college in California where I received a masters degree in Social Work. For 25 years I worked as a social worker and found the work deeply meaningful. When I retired I found myself searching for creative expression. My desire to tame my hair led me to creating hair accessories and brooches out of vintage jewelry and ribbons. I began gifting them to my friends. When they delighted in my creations this brought pleasure and meaning in a completely new way and Vintage Blooms By Ellen was born.
At a friend's request I started making women's kippot.. They soon developed into my favorite designs. I love creating something beautiful that will be worn for special and spiritual moments.
