The Compson Crew March Again!!

The Compson Crew March Again!


This is me and Katie, my wonderful stepdaughter who sadly passed away in November 2011 from cervical cancer.  As you can see she was beautiful and had a great sense of fun.  We were always laughing.  She was a huge presence and I loved her dearly.  She was also a great supporter of By Elise and I miss her constant input and ideas.

Spring Update: Visit the NEW Katie Compson Foundation website

Last year Sarah, her sister, organized family and friends to take part in the Royal Marsden Charity March, a 14 mile walk from the Royal Marsden in Fulham Road to the sister hospital in Sutton.  Incredibly we raised nearly £30,000.  Both hospitals are focused on finding solutions and they continue their incredible work on a daily basis. This year the walk will take place on Sunday 17th March 2013 and forty of her friends and family will try and raise a similar amount or more

Katie was resolute in her admiration for the care and treatment she received through the Marsden and believed strongly in furthering cancer research so that others would not have to experience what she had to go through.

The family has recently formed “The Katie Compson Foundation” which is a separate fund within the Royal Marsden Charity. The proceeds from this year’s Charity March will go directly into the Katie Compson Foundation.

If you would like to sponsor the walk and give a donation the website is

Thank you and I am not looking forward to the blisters!

Jewellery Designer in the Spotlight

February 18th, 2013 / View in own page?

By Elise has recently been featured on URBAN COCO as a “Designer Spotlight”. (article here). Elise gives an in-depth interview on how she started in Jewellery Design and the path she has taken to build the “By Elise” jewellery brand across the UK, Europe and now America.

As featured on Urban Coco

Tell us about your brand, why did you launch it?

I founded By Elise with the simple proposition of producing jewellery for women of all ages at an affordable price point.  Pearls have been central to my life from an early age and consequently a great love of mine. The mystique, mythology and romance associated with one of nature’s wonders gives the humble pearl a special place in history

Luxury is a much abused term in the retail sector and I wanted a brand with a strong ethos to support the superior quality of the product.

Our customers and their satisfaction are our primary objective. We recognize and respect that they are discerning, sophisticated and demand value for money.

Luxury is synonymous with value, integrity and quality. Luxury is not achieved by economising on quality, restricting access to the consumer or limiting production. Simply classifying an item as luxury or affordable luxury does not in itself define that item is luxury.
