Hello – All my jewellery has been designed and handcrafted by myself, Lorraine Hitt.
During more than 28 years experience within the Design industry I have experimented with both the design process and the creation of jewellery and in 2014 I took this love for all things simple, stylish and elegant and created modern collections for the discerning jewellery lover.
I have studied and self taught, to add to my modest list of talents, the art of metal smith to enable me to take my jewellery making to another level. I’m always so excited and eager to learn all there is to know about this craft. I was taught by an extremely skilled and experienced silver / goldsmith – I’ve learnt from one of the best.
The pieces in my collections are unique to me, so two handcrafted pieces are never exactly the same – making each one bespoke. Each truly unique piece is crafted and designed with love, care and attention. Mostly my collections are made from silver, brass and gold filled metals but I have recently launched a very exciting range of modern designs made from a material called SLS Nylon that is 3D Printed from my CAD drawings. The prints are dyed with a fabric dye, I then mix some of them with metal elements which gives an unusual combination of modern technology with traditional metal smith skills.
At Elsiem Jewellery I only use quality materials and for customers with any allergy or skin reaction concerns, my product listing will always detail the type of metal or material used for each individual piece.
I hope you find something that you love and gain as much pleasure wearing the jewellery as I have had in making it for you. If you have a special design or material requirement that isn’t for sale, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will endeavour to make exactly what you are looking for.

Here is what a few of my customers have said about me and my jewellery…….
‘ Well thought out jewellery with unusual designs and great craftsmanship. Have bought several pieces now and will continue to do so. The elegance of the jewellery even compliment my not so slender fingers! Thank you! ‘ Mrs T
‘ Well the lovely Lorraine made my Christmas shopping very easy – and to add to my delight everyone thought their Christmas gifts were wonderful. Not often I can afford individually designed jewellery for my family and girlfriends but elsie. m. jewellery made it possible! Thank you Lorraine keep those designs coming! ‘ Irene
‘ Since meeting the Lovely Lorraine I have had a few items from her jewellery selection.
One item… a really beautiful broach. Quite large so as well as wearing it with big chunky jumpers, it doubles up as a fastener for cardigans etc…
Another item has been a very unusual ring. It’s kind of square & I was so attracted to it for it’s uniqueness I had to have that. The one she had was the wrong size for me but Lorraine altered it in no time to fit my thin fingers.
The last item I purchased was one of her new pieces of work with leather. Again I saw this on her stall & just could not resist. I wear it all the time & lots of friends & family have complimented it.
Lorraine has a lovely delicate, classy style to her work & I just love it .’ Tina Stedman
‘ I commissioned Lorraine to design me a necklace for a music video shoot I had booked in – I gave her a very tight deadline too. She was an absolute star – not only designing, completing and posting me the necklace with days to spare but also to create a stunning unique piece of jewellery that fitted my requirements perfectly! I loved wearing it on the day and have since worn it lots – the light materials mean that I don;t even know I have it on (one of my requirements) and it is truly stunning – I get a lot of people asking me where I got the necklace from all the time. Thank you Lorraine and Elsie.m Jewellery – I shall be back for more!! ‘ Irene Rae
