By Elise, the baroque pearl designer, headquartered in  North Yorkshire announces that the new additions for the Spring/Summer Collection of earrings will be launched at the Jewellery Show Spring Fair at the NEC from the 3rd to the 7th February in Stand 18E07

In the new Collection, earrings have been selected with an emphasis on prettiness and glamour  incorporating the latest sugar candy colours as well as the ice-cool classics.  There are also the time honoured clean lines of her trademark pearl earrings  in new interesting shapes.  The new designs are time honoured classics.  The Spring/Summer collection is perfect for the catwalk, day and evening wear.  The range also allows a number of options for the Bride. All earrings are silver, rhodium plated with crystal and CZ decoration and retail from £45 to £87.

Elise comments:Integrating colour and shape to my jewellery is what ensures the jewellery is always a statement. The pleasure the pieces give to our customers both here in the UK and abroad continue to be a joy and an inspiration.

Background: Elise Compson launched her jewellery brand “By Elise” in 2002 followed by her online store in 2008 and her wholesale business “The Collection By Elise” in 2010. Her ever growing national and increasingly international reputation for fashion led designer jewellery incorporating style, glamour and originality has meant her work is now available throughout the UK, Europe, Russia and the USA. Texture and shape is paramount to each design and at times she creates pieces that have a sense of drama making them truly eye catching. The media have described it as “Classic with a Twist”.

Get Kate’s Look

December 12th, 2012 / View in own page?

We were recently featured in the Sheerluxe Magazine (Dec 2012) showcasing our earrings that look very similar to the earrings that the Duchess of Cambridge wore recently.

Kate's Look-a-like earrings

If you took a shine to the earrings the Duchess of Cambridge wore during a Christmas service around this time last year, then you’ll love the affordable versions we’ve just stumbled across.  The Allegra earrings from By Elise are made from gold-plated silver with a sparkly crystal drop. They’re similarly eye-catching but unlike Kate’s pair come in at just £56 (@ Dec 2012 prices).  Perfect party-season sparkle…

I also have to announce the arrival of Bentley who is our black Labrador puppy. He has brought a huge amount of laughter and love into our lives but also a lack of sleep!

We went out one night for supper thinking he was safely indoors only to come home and find he had managed to get out through the catflap and was having a lovely time.  I hope to eventually have Bentley draped in some jewellery.

Calendar Girls Love Pearls!

May 1st, 2012 / View in own page?

I had a fabulous time recently watching the brilliant stage production of Calendar Girls which, on its tour, came to The Grand in Leeds.

The ladies all wear pearls throughout the performances and my friend and good customer, Jan Harvey, who is starring in it thought I might like to take some jewellery for the other girls to see.

The show was hugely entertaining, full of humour but also with the perfect amount of pathos.

And I am happy to say they are now wearing By Elise pearls!
