"I design and craft each piece of jewelry by hand, using traditional metalsmithing skills"
Welcome, my name is Emma. I am the goldsmith behind Emma Elizabeth Jewelry. My studio is based in Grand Rapids, Michigan where I design and craft each piece of jewelry by hand, using traditional metalsmithing skills.
I was introduced to metalsmithing at Grand Valley State University. My eagerness and desire to learn more brought me to Florence, Italy in 2017 where I studied jewelry design, goldsmithing, and gemology. This journey has been one step at a time, slowly achieving my goals and putting forth my best effort. I could not have come this far without the help of you believing in my dream and wanting to see me succeed. Thank you for your continued encouragement, love and support, it means the world to me.
"I chose to take my pain and turn it into inspiration"
I put a lot of time and effort into the production and creation of each piece of my jewelry. As a designer I start with a sketch that helps me to plan out my approach. I hand pick my stones with intention and create each piece of jewelry using traditional metalsmithing skills.
I love the opportunity to create bespoke jewelry, a commission created to particular specifications. To me it is more than creating a custom piece of jewelry. It is a way for us to get to know each other and for me to hear your story.
Lately I have been designing and creating bespoke wedding bands and engagement rings as well as bridal party gifts. It is really exciting for me to be able to provide a bespoke service to you that you will cherish forever to remember your special day!
My own story of loss brought me to metalsmithing. It helped me cope with my loss and keep moving forward. I chose to take my pain and turn it into inspiration. I truly believe that this is what I was meant to do, it is a gift given to me that has become my passion and my dream. In the near future I plan to add a line of keepsake jewelry to my collection in honor of my lost loved one. It will be a way for you to hold your loved ones close within your grasp.
My goal is that in the end you get way more than just a beautiful product. We all have our own unique stories to tell and we should share them with confidence and feel strong doing it. Emma Elizabeth Jewelry is really about embracing who you are, confident, edgy and unique.
