About

HEARTS FOR SICKKIDS

Hi,
My name is Liz (Elle). Welcome to my shop. I am the owner, designer, maker and shipper behind elle & belle jewelry. After studying jewelry design, my daughter originally created 'elle & belle' which is named after me and my mother, Isabel. My mother loved and collected jewelry so it is fitting that my daughter paid tribute to her grandmother in this way.

Inspired by the strength and courage of the children and the compassionate staff at the Hospital for Sick Children near her workplace, my daughter started a Hearts for Sick Kids campaign as part of 'elle & belle', donating $5.00 each from her best selling necklace to SickKids Foundation in Toronto, Canada. Before she moved to New York City, she taught me how to make her heart necklaces and I have since put my own spin on the elle & belle collection with 'elle & belle jewelry'.

I continue to support SickKids and the Hospital for Sick Children which provides outstanding paediatric care, research and education needed to assist children around the world. We thank all of you who have purchased our heart necklaces and made our donations possible.

I have undertaken other creative endeavors such as: pottery making, sewing my own clothes and nursery room decor, knitting sweaters for myself and family and now I love the proud satisfaction that comes from being an artisan of handmade jewelry. Basically self-taught but, inspired by my daughter, I have taken some beading and metal work classes. I have experimented with a number of mediums and continue to refine my techniques. Mostly, I get my inspiration from the form and movement of different materials and found objects.

I strive to create jewelry that I am proud to wear myself and hope that anyone wearing one of my pieces feels happy and special. My customers are very important to me. If you see something in my shop you would like customized please ask. I will try my best to accommodate!

When you give a gift from elle & belle jewelry or treat yourself you are not only helping SickKids but you are supporting a small business and receiving a unique item handmade with heart.

Care instructions

My sterling silver or silver plated items can be polished gently with a quality jewelry cloth for that purpose or protected with a quality non-wax car polish such as Nu Finish if you do not like the natural patina that develops over time. Use a soft non-chemical cloth for polishing gold.

As dust, pollutants, chlorine and perfume and other cosmetics dull the appearance of pearls, stones, gold vermeil or gold filled jewelry or sterling silver over time it is recommended to apply make-up before putting on jewelry and to store your pieces in an air tight bag. It is best to remove them while sleeping and showering and swimming.

Textile cords can be spot washed with a gentle fabric cleaner, patted dry and left to dry out of the sun.
