About Us

Every piece of jewellery here has been designed and handmade by Ellie McCandless in her home studio in East Yorkshire, UK.

Ellie has always been creative and enjoyed making things herself - cards, jewellery, clothes - you name it, she's probably tried to make it. Having launched a successful small business, Pretty Happy Designs, making jewellery and homeware gifts from resin and jesmonite in 2021, this fulfilled a lifelong dream. However, this only increased her desire to create a business around her love of silver. This led to Ellie embarking on a new journey of training in jewellery silversmithing, and since then she hasn't looked back.

Inspired by so much of the world around us, whether that is the ocean, the beauty of nature, or the more spiritual side that is sometimes a little more ethereal, Ellie also loves to design pieces based on ancient history, myths and legend. Each piece of jewellery is made with love and care, using recycled precious metals and ethically sourced gemstones. Where possible all our packaging is either FSC sourced, recyclable or reusable.
