EllyMental Jewellery is the transformation of Elly's little illustrations into lovingly and meticulously hand crafted pieces of jewellery. Elly is inspired by designs based on her own fervent interest in kitsch nostalgia, victoriana and animals. She incorporates her drawings with found ephemera such as 1950's books, Victorian newspapers and delicate home-made papers. Items are multi-layered with metal and coated with resin to create a strong and robust end piece.
EllyMental unique jewellery is for sale in galleries and shops throughout the UK. I also take commissions for a variety of occasions or just because! - just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will recreate anything seen on this website or direct you to stockists.
A bit on my background: I trained in Contemporary Textile Practise at the University of Wales, Cardiff, graduating in 2005. I continue to live and work in Cardiff selling and exhibiting my jewellery in galleries, shops and the occasional art & craft fairs all over the UK.
