Awarded for Innovation in the Creative Sector by GLE oneLondon March 2010.
Born in South East London Elisha Francis studied her Foundation Diploma in Art & Design at Camberwell College of Arts and Interior Design and Retail Design at London College of Communication.
Previous to this she studied textiles and thought that this would be the path that she would have as a career. Until August 2003 when a trip to John Lewis’s haberdashery department on Oxford Street led her to make her first pair of earrings and it was then that she knew exactly how she could turn her talents for design into a business venture.
Her love of all things beautiful led her to use her design skills to create imaginative pieces of jewellery using a variety of materials including semi precious stones, pearls and crystals.
“I want the person wearing my jewellery to feel like a Superstar, I want the women to feel sophisticated, glamorous and beautiful, and I want the men to feel, empowered, stylish and complete.”
She now produces glamorous and eye-catching pieces that have been featured in Colures, SHE Carribbean, Pride and Touch magazine to name a few.
