Bohemian, Vintage Inspired Beaded, Stone and Mixed Metal Jewelry

I live in Italy. Here there is inspiration everywhere. I came from Long Island, NY to Milan, Italy to work in fashion. I was lucky enough to have worked for some of the top Italian fashion houses. My runway days are long gone but my love for fashion, design and creation has stayed with me!

I studied jewelry making in Milan where I fell in love with artwork and decorative motifs of the Italian Renaissance. I have learned the importance of exploring new materials and how exciting it is mixing them.

Often my creations are inspired by old world European style, I especially like bohemian, rustic and vintage looks. I like using warm Earth tones; semi-precious stones, natural colors and mixed metals. I like to think my pieces are long lost thoughts and memories looking to come back as modern amulets and talismans.

I started the ETSY shop so I could share my designs with friends and family abroad. The Etsy shop is a great way to show them, and the rest of the Etsy community my new creations. It is very satisfying to see that people are appreciative of my jewelry.

My workspace
I live in Lecco, Italy and my apartment overlooks Lake Como. I have set up my workspace in the conservatory on the terrace. I look out to the lake and surrounding mountains, listening to birds chirping. If I had to describe it in one word, I’d say…”Heaven”.
I am a one-woman operation. I get the supplies, design the pieces, make the pieces and I do the photos and web updates myself. The ETSY shop makes it easy for me to keep my trade small and personalized. It’s just my speed.

My brand and service
My name is on the cover page, my name is on the package when it’s mailed to your home. I make each item personally by hand with the hope that my clients feel unique and distinctive when they are wearing a piece. I hope that when my clients get compliments when they wear an item, that they are happy say, “I got this from Celia Elizabeth in Italy, she makes everything by hand!”
I don’t put anything on the website that I don’t have available. This way, when an order comes in I can package it and take it to the post office as soon as possible.
Depending on the postal service and time period (holiday times take longer), the item can take from 3 to 7 days to arrive in Europe, and 7 to 15 days to arrive in the USA or other overseas continents.
I hope you are pleased with your new Celia Elizabeth Jewelry piece!

Please contact me for any questions or comments.

I also sell at local markets and holiday fairs.

Thanks for visiting my shop, enjoy browsing!

Additional policies and FAQs
Handicrafted products will often contain the natural characteristics of the materials used in the manufacture of the completed product. Natural characteristics such as grain, texture, knots and color variation should not be classed as faults or defects. Inconsistencies in these natural characteristics should be expected and appreciated. I select only products of the highest quality but natural characteristics are inevitable and should be accepted as part of the individual appearance of the product.
