Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham

Hi - I'm Ellie.

I am a jewellery designer-maker with a love for my garden.

Whether, like me, you're a novice with crooked carrots, or rather, have been perfecting your cucumbers for thirty years - I hope you find something to make you smile amongst my gardening inspired jewellery adventures.

Proudly independent

The story behind the business
Meet Ellen Lou

Through a passion for handcrafted objects, I create miniatures to make you smile.

I am fascinated by the construction of an object and revel in the challenge of replication. My work is precise, with clean joins and smooth surfaces. Movement and mixed metal are also pleasing.

When a hobby takes hold, I fully immerse, erring on the obsessive, and so my craft follows my life passions. Most recently, since tending to a patch of my own, the garden has become my everything.

A place to sit, stare, breathe, heal.

My miniatures are a tribute, a thank you - to my garden, to all our gardens.

The objects are crafted by hand - from wire, tube and sheet silver. I am a traditionalist, stubbornly silversmithing and pencil sketching in an ever accelerating digital age.

Pleasure is the process.

The relief of a solder join running, freshly pickled silver - white between tweezers, and the feeling of proud admiration having brought images from your mind’s eye into existence.
