About the Designer

ellen_haysMy love for creating jewelry all started in the Spring of 2002 during my college years at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Human Ecology. After college, I moved back to Jackson, Tennessee, the town where I was born and raised. I have always enjoyed creating my own style and technique of art, which facilitated my passion for designing and making jewelry. I began by making earrings and necklaces as a hobby for myself and my family. My job after college was selling clothes to boutiques throughout the southeast United States. Clients noticed my jewelry, and I began selling my collection to many boutiques. As a result, I thought I could meet the needs of my clients better if I designed a website.

The motto I like to follow in life is, "Do what you love and love what you do", because life is to short not to enjoy everyday on this earth. Besides designing jewelry, I love being with my family and friends, traveling, and meeting new people. My goal in this business is not only to sell to customers in the southeast, but to broaden my horizons to other parts of the country. My plan is pretty simple- I hope to create jewelry that is elegant, edgy, and fun to wear. If you have these three components in your accessories, your wardrobe will be complete. Thank you for your interest in Ellen Hays Jewelry.
