With over 10 years of jewelry design and creation, starting a jewelry line was not a foray that was stumbled upon suddenly...
After spending over ten years working in the corporate world, my jewelry background was regulated to creating specialized pieces for family/friends and teaching various design classes. With a strong POV and years of great interest in my unique pieces, the decision was made to finally bring Elusive Muse to life!
From attending New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, with course studies in chainmail, gemstones, metal smithing, and gemstone jewelry, coupled with a driving interest in geometry, architecture, and modern art, the idea of what Elusive Muse would be, was born. At Elusive Muse, we use traditional jewelry techniques combined with modern and natural materials to create jewelry that is bold and fresh while still giving a nod to adornments of the past.
Each piece is a true birth of love and thought that fuses modern and tribal techniques to make sculptural but subtle pieces of wearable art. While each piece is visibly bold, it is also entwined with an underlying simplicity and harmony in its design that does not overtake or distract, but complements and adds to the wearer’s confidence, aesthetics, and individuality.
*Designed and Made in the U.S.A.
The Elusive Muse team is comprised of native New Yorker’s/husband and wife duo, Heather and Dmitry. Each piece is thoughtfully designed and handcrafted with most materials being hand-forged in the studio or sourced from across the globe. Each piece is intended to make the wearer a modern day nexus of wearable art, both contemporary and traditional.
