Raised beneath the deep blue skies and inexhaustible palette of the Caribbean there was an inevitability that Elise Compson would pursue her career within the fashion and related arena. Her brand “By Elise” and her designs are synonymous with the vibrancy, light and warmth of an upbringing spent in the West Indies and Africa.
Jewellery has the power to be the one little thing that makes you feel unique'' : Elizabeth Taylor
Elise developed her design and product skills after much time spent in Hong Kong and London before eventually arriving in Yorkshire. Here she developed her nationwide reputation for jewellery which is best described as “classic with a contemporary twist” and “style by design”.
Elise’s main focus is to make jewellery with a timeless element that can be worn day or night that is both unique and stylish.
Her first love are freshwater baroque pearls and her extensive knowledge of these and gemstones was founded from the myriad of artisans in Tsim Sha Tsui, a famed jewellery area of Hong Kong. Her favourites are the truly lustrous baroque freshwater pearls which are often one of a kind and truly make a statement. Chosen for their umique nature where the texture and shape provide for style, fashion, fun and above all enjoyment.
