be beautiful. be bold. be brave.
I have had a passion for creating my entire life. For as long as I can remember I have been making jewelry. When I was little I had a ton of plastic contains which held thousands of tiny glass beads. I would make simple necklaces on thread and then upgraded and got one of those tiny little looms. From there I can't even begin to remember all of the things I have tried. Clay, fabric, resin, wood...I love it all.
Plain and simple I love making jewelry. I made the big step to try and make this my job. It is scary and exciting and I hope you like what you see.
So it is with a happy heart that I bring you my new store. The Ellie Joy Store was inspired by my wonderful grandmother Eleanor Joy (Ellie as her friends called her). My Nana is gone but the beauty of her life lives on through my wonderful family. I am trying to live and love by the words she taught me, "be brave".
Owner, Maker, Designer
Shannon McDonald is the designer behind the Ellie Joy Store. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth in 2004. However, I would say my formal training began long before college. My parents were my first instructors.
