We Make You Feel Beautiful, Valuable and Visible

Frannie & Elinor makes it easy to shop for the jewelry you love.

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. We design with metals used by some of the best jewelry designers worldwide. Our designs range from those crafted with single and mixed metals to pieces with semi-precious stones, Swarovski pearls or crystals, quality wooden beads, cultured sea glass or limited edition accent pieces. Each piece of jewelry is made with close attention to detail from design to execution.

Our newest collection, "Simple Elegance," brings enduring beauty and grace, elegant design and modern re-imagining of classic pieces. These inspired designs bring joy and uplift with every piece. Whether as a gift or a special treat for yourself, the unique, handcrafted jewelry featured in this collection will turn heads. There are "wow factor" statement pieces, stunning designs in hammered gold and sterling silver, and delightful earrings accented by a luscious palette of cultured sea glass and accent beads. Each design is perfect for the holidays and for discerning jewelry lovers year round. Celebrate with jewelry from this limited edition Frannie & Elinor collection before they are gone!

Our other collections, like 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, beads or pearls in palettes that are classic, contemporary and fashion forward. Use of hammered and textured sterling silver and gold-fill* (NEVER gold-plated, "brushed" or vermeil) make our singular designs high quality, long-lasting and perfect for day or night.

Quality Materials
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, "brushed gold" 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.

Customer Service
Our commitment to highly responsive customer service is reflected in our Ready to Ship (RIS) practices and friendly communication with shoppers. We are always eager to help you find the perfect handcrafted jewelry as a treat for yourself or as a gift.

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.

Safety

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.
