Elisa is a graduate of the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California, and has maintained a jewelry studio since 1994. Her work is influenced by industrial design and architecture, with an aesthetic that lends itself to modern designs. Though Elisa’s work is clean and direct with her use of simple shapes and patterns, the hand crafted qualities still remain visible. Every piece of jewelry is handmade by Elisa in her Oakland studio. Using repetition of form and change of scale, she crafts each piece into modern and classic wearable art.
