Just Beautiful and excellent quality
It's always a good time to sparkle :)
I grew up in Bruges, a magical city located in the West Flanders region of Belgium. Since birth I was surrounded by beautiful medieval architecture, canals and cobbled streets and I enjoyed living there until my mid twenties, that's when I did some soul searching and decided I wanted to travel and explore different places, I took a leap of faith and chose to leave my beautiful little city and moved to the big city of Los Angeles.
Scary, but oh so exciting!
I always knew I was creative but I never really tapped into my artistic side
until I started working for a jewelry wholesale co. at the California Mart in downtown
Los Angeles. I acquired a special love for jewelry and soon began to develop my own aesthetics regarding jewelry and started exploring the craft.
With no jewelry making skills I started buying beads and findings from local bead shops and created my first pair of beaded chandelier earrings. Inspired by the endless possibilities and creative juices that went through the roof I soon had created a whole collection and started selling them to little boutiques, it was an instant success. One thing led to another and within one year my jewelry line was selling at many major department stores. Elfi Roose Jewelry was established in 1993.
After many years of selling wholesale and collaborating with several fashion houses I had a burn out and needed to take some time off to relax, being my restless self I started looking at other ways to sell my jewelry and that's when I found Etsy, I opened my shop here in 2010.
As I love mastering new ideas. I have over the years created many different collections from vintage inspired to bohemian, modern to contemporary but my true love is with my current collection, it's a true representation of myself, modern
with a flavor of earthiness. I'm influenced by our natural environment and all it's beautiful forms, colors and textures it has to offer, however an idea can come from just about anywhere. My creative juices really start flowing when I pick up a piece of wax and start carving. Most often the outcome of that piece will be different from my initial idea but it almost always turns out to be a new favorite, I call it "process designing",
Every item in my shop goes through several processes such as wax carving, casting, soldering, plating, wire wrapping and stone setting. I only use genuine gemstones and precious metals.
I hope you enjoy your visit :)
