At the time of writing - Winter of 22 - I am 34 years old and live in sunny Stirchley, Birmingham.
A portal to my soul
This website that you're exploring is the outlet for my incessant need to create. 'Ellen Lou' is my jewellery's current guise.
My designs follow my life passions and well, a lot has changed since I first started crafting miniatures in silver from my Mom’s garage in the late noughties. If you’re visiting via a re-direct from ancient internet times then you may be familiar with my previous alter ego - Bug.
You can read all about it in Chapter One.
My subconscious now hangs out in the garden. Occasionally it can be found on a muddy dance floor eating toast, but for the most part it now daydreams amongst the daisies and hoverflies in the snippets of time between naps and nappy changes.
Healing & connection
I never thought I would own a garden of my own. It has come to be a very special place. Somewhere to sit, to heal, to smile. Breathe, stare, daydream and doze.
If I am lost, I’ll go to the garden and I always come home.
Wander with me...
