Hand sewn accessories, jewellery and art.
I'm Elaine and my small business, Ellie's Treasures, was launched in November 2009. My enjoyment of hand stitching, love of colour and tactile media has lead me to design and sew accessories and jewellery that are individual little artworks. I feel there is something very lovely about an item made by hand. Maybe it’s the notion that it is unique and carefully finished, perhaps a little uneven in places, and always the knowledge that no two items will be exactly the same. Every little piece is made with care and love and designed to bring joy to its new owner.
Texture and colour through felt, fabric and pretty embellishments
I am a self taught crafter with a passion for hand sewing (I'm a little afraid of sewing machines, but that's another story for another day), using texture and colour through felt, fabric and pretty embellishments in my work. I sell my accessories, jewellery and art through Etsy, Folksy, mycrafty and at selected local craft fairs and markets.
