Elsa Valencia grew up in a family that worked in the fashion artistic world and was exposed to this industry her whole life. Her mother worked as a seamstress for thirty years until she retired and her father was a tailor/metal designer which he continues to do as a hobby. At an early age Elsa learned to sew, make jewelry, and designed her own clothes as early as the age of 14. Elsa went on to earn a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in other fields but continued to pursue her higher calling, fashion.
Born in East Los Angeles and surrounding herself with others with artistic interest kept her motivated. Her drive and passion to create has been her inspiration to make jewelry that she can share with others. Elsa’s style is inspired by her love of the vintage 60’s and 70’s. For her it was an amazing revolution of fashion that will live on through her work and the work of other artist. She hopes that her creations will be enjoyed by others as much as she enjoys creating and designing. Every jewelry piece is handmade by Elsa Valencia. She performs all work from design to wax carving to the finished piece.
