Behind the art
With the festive Kiss Collection by Elephant Heart, jewelry designer and artist Elyse Graham blurs the boundary between jewelry and sculpture to create unique wearable objects. By pushing the limits of her materials, Elyse has designed a line of handmade jewelry that is bold and striking, while still remaining extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear.
After completing her studies at Brown University, Elyse created Elephant Heart Jewelry – a synthesis of her creative interests. Her two collections, Classic and Supernatural, are reflections of the dichotomy of her aesthetic sensibility. The former, her refined sense for the delicate and natural and the latter, her gravity toward the outrageous and experimental. Each piece of jewelry is handmade and created by Elyse herself.
