Emily Elizabeth Kolins has always been drawn to artistic outlets of expression throughout her life, including jewelry making as a teenager. Upon graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English with a minor in Art from Hunter College, she found herself with a college degree but without a defined career choice. After convincing her parents to give her the Summer after graduation off to explore her professional calling, Emily realized her love for accessories and began contemplating how she could turn her passion into a full-time career.
Encouraged by friends and family, Emily created a small collection of pieces in the fall of 2006 and Emily Elizabeth Jewelry was officially launched. Primarily working with gold plated brass charms, Emily aims to create pieces that are feminine and classic, while still modern and whimsical. Emily purposefully designs and prices her jewelry so that women can afford to wear something special and feel beautiful everyday.
The company office and manufacturing are proudly based in New York where Emily works and resides. Customer services issues are handled out of North Carolina. Making jewelry ethically and working personally with vendors in the United States is a process Emily values and takes seriously.
When Emily isn’t working she enjoys spending time with her family, husband, watching reality TV shows, trying to keep her houseplants alive and chowing down on Mexican food.
