ELLAJUDE jewelry is designed and made by Joshua Samuels in Memphis, TN. Ellajude’s designs are simple, unique and enhanced by the beautiful imperfections patinas bring out in each piece. Most of the materials are locally sourced from the Memphis area. The jewelry begins as a section of copper, steel or brass which is hand cut & forged to shape. The bracelets and rings are lined with leather for comfort and hypoallergenic reasons. They use natural patinas to create a vibrant array of colors which is enhanced by hand sanding and leaves each piece distressed with a polished edge. After the sealant is applied, you have a rustic, one of a kind wearable piece of art.
