Our Story
My mom (Frannie) loved to wear wonderful, interesting jewelry. No matter how hard her life was or had been, in those moments when she put on earrings or a great necklace, she changed. Mom stood more confidently. She felt beautiful and a bit more visible, valuable and in control of her life. However private, personal or fleeting those moments were, they brought her great joy.

Though she passed on many years ago, my mom continues to inspire me every day. I named the shop after her (and the middle name she gave me) to honor her and the importance of feeling seen and in control of your life every day. My mission with Frannie & Elinor is to inspire you to feel beautiful, valuable and visible.

About our Collections
Our collections represent the high standards of Frannie & Elinor designs. We choose premium materials and take special care in designing each piece of jewelry including metals used by jewelry designers and metalsmiths worldwide.* Some of our designs are crafted with semi-precious stones, Swarovski pearls and crystals, cultured sea glass, limited edition accent pieces or wooden beads. Each piece is made with close attention to detail from design to execution.

Our newest collection, entitled Vibrant Autumn, brings simple beauty, light and rich color into our lives offering an uplift at a time when we are eager for positive change. These unique, handcrafted designs feature a luscious palette of cultured sea glass accented by hammered sterling silver - just perfect for discerning jewelry lovers. Celebrate Fall with this limited edition collection!

Other collections, like Forged Grace, Reflected Joy, Sea Change and our Signature Collection, continue the tradition of designing handcrafted jewelry to "wear with joy." Designs of minimalist earrings, pendants and necklaces are complimented by accent stones, crystals, cultured sea glass, beads or Swarovski pearls in palettes that are classic, contemporary and fashion forward. Use of hammered and textured sterling silver and gold-fill* (NEVER gold-plated of vermeil!) make our singular designs high quality, long-lasting and perfect for day or night.

Every bead, stone, sea glass feature and accent material we use is unique and celebrates slight variations in color,** size, opacity and texture. Variations are a natural part of the character of handcrafted jewelry and add to the beauty and one of a kind nature of your earrings, pendants and necklaces.

*I choose to work with sterling silver and 14K gold-fill, like many top jewelers and metalsmiths today. After solid gold, gold-fill is absolutely the most popular option for quality and durability. Gold-fill jewelry, unlike gold-plated or vermeil, will never flake, peel, turn your skin green or rub off. Gold-fill has a thick outer layer of real 14K gold that is highly durable and safe for most people with sensitive skin. The standards for gold-fill are also strictly regulated. These metals offer you excellent, top quality designs at affordable prices.

**Different screens and monitors may display colors in shades slightly different from the actual items.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Please remember that our earrings are handmade and fragile. They should not get wet or be worn when sleeping or doing activities where they can get caught in clothing or hair. Be sure to remove jewelry when using perfume, hair products and makeup. It is recommended that earring backs be worn to protect against loss.

Please Note: Sea glass earrings should be treated with gentle care. Handling them over a soft surface (like a folded towel) is recommended.

Every purchase comes with a complimentary CareKit and Care Instructions.

I notice there are slight variations in the stones, beads and materials in the earrings. I like that. Is it typical?

All metal, stones, beads, cultured sea glass and accent pieces are unique and may celebrate slight variations in color, size, opacity or texture. Variations are natural and part of the character of handcrafted jewelry. These features add to the beauty and one of a kind nature of your chosen design.


Frannie & Elinor earrings are intended for adults. Care should be taken to keep earrings out of the reach of small children as they can present a choking or other hazard. (See also Care instructions.)

What if I have an unexpected problem with my earrings?

We endeavor to use quality materials and always take care in constructing each pair of earrings. Should there be a concern with your order, please contact us immediately and Joan Elinor will work with you personally to make things right. Contact information is included with every purchase.

Will you change bead colors or switch regular earwires for lever back closures or change them to a different metal?

We are happy to work with you to change bead colors or earwires if we can do so and maintain the integrity of the original design. Please click Contact Shop Owner (at the top of this page under my photo) with any questions.

What charities and nonprofits do you donate to?

We are committed to creating beautiful designs so others feel beautiful, valuable and visible. We contribute to those who share our goal. Thus far we have donated to food banks, rides for seniors, a women' shelter, arts programs for children, community for the formerly unhoused and a writing and performance program for incarcerated women. Frannie & Elinor does not donate to political campaigns.

Are designs in stock or will I need to wait till my earrings are made?

Our commitment to highly responsive Customer Service is reflected in our Ready to Ship (RIS) practices and communication with shoppers. All listed designs are available unless SOLD OUT, which happens with our most popular designs. We are also eager to help you find the perfect handcrafted jewelry as a treat for yourself or as a gift - which includes Custom Designs. (Message seller for Custom Design options. Joan Elinor will happily discuss these with you.)
