EllaAndTess' Shop Announcement

All of my jewelry pieces - marketed under the brand name Ella & Tess - are entirely handcrafted using my own original designs. I work in both sterling silver and copper and enjoy using a variety of processes, such as fold forming, forging, and texturing, often combining several processes in the same piece. I use a variety of textures and patinas in my pieces such as oxidizing and brushing to show off texture details and colorful flame-produced patinas. The majority of my copper pieces are sealed with a durable, food-safe metal sealant to protect the patinas and finishes. My designs are created in small quantities, one at a time, by me.

My bath & body products are created with high quality ingredients and a focus on natural and responsibly sourced materials, minimal packaging, and overall eco-friendliness. I use natural scents whenever possible and choose USA grown or produced ingredients and packaging as often as I can.

My accessory and décor items spring from my personal interests, a mix of materials and a full palette of artistic skills, which I hope results in items that you find both useful and beautiful.

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’m a mixed bag of likes and interests. An accountant who enjoys the predictability and order of a balanced budget sharing the same skin with an unpredictable artist. 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.

In my life I’ve found that not only do opposites attract, but they can live happily side by side in the same skin. I hope you enjoy exploring both sides of my collection. And don’t forget to explore your own unique opposites.
