At the tender age of 3, I announced to my mom that I would be an artist. I started selling my handicrafts out of my bedroom as soon as I could count change.
By 5th grade, I was running my first jewelry company, making customized, hand-knotted embroidery floss friendship bracelets.
I work in a variety of precious metals and with unusual, ethically sourced stones that reflect the unique style of my clients. Rings have always been my favorite and feel like the most intimate pieces to wear and create. Perhaps that’s because they don’t require a mirror to admire. Or perhaps it’s the physical sensation of wrapping our hardworking fingers in something so precious and meaningful.
When I started making jewelry I had no interest in making engagement or wedding rings. I thought an engagement ring could only be a big diamond on a skinny band. Turns out, I was wrong! My rings are different, intended to be practical and beautiful—a true expression of your personal style.

Behind every great business is an amazing staff!
Jenny is an artist and jeweler who joined the EC Design team fresh out of college in 2015 as an intern. Fun fact: Jenny and Emily both attended the Minneapolis College of Art nearly a decade apart. They even had the same faculty advisor, following a strikingly similar path toward a BFA with an emphasis in Sculpture. Aside from jewelry and art, Jenny is also an avid biker, baker, and cat lover.
Kelly and Emily met as fashionable, funky, 20-something kids working in the backroom of Anthropologie. A fast, strong friendship formed and in 2020 Kelly joined EC Design as Studio Director. While her BS in Business Management and years of experience in customer service keep operations humming, Kelly’s amazing attention to detail can be simultaneously delightful and annoying to Emily. When she isn’t manning the computer and scrutinizing SKUs, Kelly enjoys gardening and playing with her adorable rescue dogs.
