Tranquility reigns at Jen Ellis Designs
Jen Ellis Designs’ home studio was calm and cool as a baby slept in the next room and a delicious glass of ice tea was drank. It’s hard to believe her home can be anything but peaceful. The jewellery she creates reflects this serenity. It’s delicate, pretty, and desirable.
I first met Jen when she set up a booth at Portobello West. I was doing publicity for the market and Jen Ellis Designs caught the media’s attention. Since then we have bumped into each other at a White Rock park where our little girls were playing, have seen each other at countless markets, and have partnered on selling her sterling silver and 14kt gold-filled jewellery to stores across Canada. The next phase in Jen’s career holds great promise. I hope she can stay zen when the orders start to rush in. Photos by Rafael Escobar
