Individually designed, hand sewn accessories, jewellery and artwork using mixed textiles, charms and embellishments.
Drawing on my love of colour and texture, Ellie’s Treasures is all about designing and hand sewing tactile mixed media lovelies for my customers to enjoy and treasure. Each item of jewellery, accessory and artwork is totally unique with time spent compiling each piece using fabric, felt, charms and all the pretty embellishments before stitching by hand to produce one of a kind items. With a growing concern for the environment, I aim to repurpose unwanted and donated materials, buttons and beads where possible when designing each product.
Based on the borders of three counties, my work is inspired by hares darting across the Lincolnshire Fens, beautiful architecture of Cambridgeshire towns and the rugged beauty of the Norfolk coastline.
Ellie’s Treasures was launched online in November, 2009 selling through the Etsy and Folksy marketplaces, social media channels and, during the months leading up to Christmas, a small selection of established local craft markets. Commissions are very welcome should you wish for a truly personal item.
