Eleanor Reyelt

Artist Statement

My name is Eleanor Reyelt and I am a junior in high school. I founded my own jewelry business called Jewelz by Elle. I have been making jewelry since I was in elementary school but only started selling during the early months of quarantine. I am entirely self-taught. I create all types of jewelry: rings, necklaces and anklets, but my primary focus recently has been on making earrings. I like to keep my jewelry relatively affordable. I love to use crystals in my pieces, because of their beauty and because they carry healing properties that benefit the buyer. I am excited to continue to practice more jewelry design and techniques, in particular metal smithing.
