Inspired from a creative upbringing amidst the glacier lakes of Canada, Summer Ellis as a young designer, began offering her delicately crafted jewelry, and became established in the year 1999. Along with her family, she had just moved south from her northern roots to live in the vibrant town of Austin. It was then, through the merging of bright Texas skies and her fond memories of tea times, verdant gardens and her mother’s quaint craft shoppe beneath their second floor cottage home, that the spirit of inspiration came to bear.
Summer’s jewelry collections reveal a journey of depth and romance, as they glimmer with hope and delight, amidst the rough edges and cuts of this world – reflecting what Summer calls, “an impossible grace.” It is this delicate potency, accenting romantic reminiscence, to which her jewelry serves to diffuse to each whom they adorn. Sixteen years later and over sixteen thousand pieces purchased, Summer Ellis™ jewelry has veritably become a symbol to an occasion’s memory, as well as an effortless compliment to your daily wear.
Summer’s artistry continues to nourish deep roots through her design studio and showroom, operating within an historic, porcelain-clad building in the core of downtown Waco, Texas, where Summer Ellis bijouterie™ is proud to be made by hand locally in the USA.
