Combining skilled craftsmanship with the artistic, Elly began to create modern, sophisticated, simple, and yet fun jewelry offered at a sensible price.
Behind the Purple Door of her Hamden, Connecticut home in 2005, Elly Preston began her jewelry business. Throughout her collections, Elly's appreciation and passion for color and texture is evident in her choice of gemstones, pearls and crystals. Each item is selected and arranged carefully by hand, often incorporated with shells, silk threads, ribbons and leather to show off the jewelry in its natural beauty. Unlike many jewelry designers today who merely assemble bought components, Elly's designs are like pieces of art. Each piece is unique, yet does not compromise the original intent to offer exquisite jewelry at affordable prices.
