Mara Safra and Elyse Kreitman have always loved wearing jewelry. Now they’re creating it.
Welcome to Ellie Madison, jewelry sure to make you happy.
After closing the door on their previous lives as a buyer for a department store and an accountant, busy moms Elyse and Mara found themselves spending their few precious free moments exploring New York City’s jewelry district, experimenting with stones, beads and macramé. The project started as more of a pursuit of happiness for the two women, but when friends, family and even strangers continually expressed their love for the pieces the friends were creating, they decided why not spread the joy? While Ellie Madison is just starting to show up on the radar of jewelry lovers everywhere, Mara and Elyse have design in their genes. Elyse’s mother designs jewelry in her home state of Kentucky and Mara’s childhood memories of her mother left her with a passion for creating – from unique foods to fashion. Ellie Madison selects the finest stones and makes them into pieces that not only reflect their natural beauty, but enhance it. You’ll know when you’re wearing Ellie Madison because you’ll feel happy.
