Ellen Mote Jewelry
Ellen Mote Jewelry is a jewelry design studio based in Waco, Texas. EMJ is committed to creating unique and timeless pieces of handmade jewelry made for daily wear. Ellen Mote, owner, and lead designer makes each piece of jewelry by hand using traditional metalsmithing techniques. She focuses on using sustainable materials while ensuring the highest quality.
Ellen studied Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing at Texas Tech University, though she didn’t always know that jewelry making would be her artistic calling. It wasn’t until she worked under a jewelry designer in Portland that she fell in love with jewelry making and began a fascination and deep appreciation for the design process.
As the company grows, Ellen continues to cultivate her passion for design, architecture, and global studies, translating the beauty she observes into wearable art. Transforming raw materials into something tangible is why she admires her craft, and her hope is that what she creates inspires confidence in the wearer of each piece.
