Hi Friends! Happy Monday! Whew, can you believe that it’s already February?! I’m excited about how crazy busy and fun this month is going to be, so I was excited to get started!
Today I want you to meet Preston, the owner and designer of Ellison James, a local jewelry line hand-made right here in Charlotte. I discovered her gorgeous line via Instagram and fell in love with her beautiful work.
I asked her to share a little more about herself and how the line came about and here’s what she had to say:

I don't see any creativity in the designs, they look all the same with a different bead or crystal. I got a pair from a friend and it looks flimsy and cheap, it bend easily, so be careful. I wont buy this product, you see it everywhere, I can probably have a craft day making this with my daughter and her friends at home just for fun. I guess quality will make the difference, but I have seen this ones and is a cheap wire wrapping a bead or whatever the "designer" wants to wrap on. Sorry for the bad comment but it was disappointed to see this on your blog.

Dear Anonymous (sad we aren't on a first name basis!). I am so disappointed by your comment. This series was put into place to celebrate creatives that I adore and is not a sponsored post, but truly meant to lift someone else up and help to grow their business. I LOVE Preston's work, found the quality EXCEPTIONAL, and have been searching for the perfect gold earrings, which I didn't find until I was introduced to Ellison James, making her designs (in my opinion) absolutely and beautifully unique. I encourage you to (like Preston has) use your abundant free time to be creative and would love a sampling of the pieces you make so that I can also use this blog to lift you up. Please teach your precious daughter that us women need to stick together and use our words and talents to promote each other. Cheers! xo

Cheers!!! – lift me up? Darling, you are totally wrong if you think I need your help. Abundant free time is what you have, and you should take the comments on your blog in a better way, That's why you have a comment space right? I'm giving my opinion of a product maybe to encourage the "designer" not your blog. Oh and my precious daughter thank you for the advice. An old follower, Britt.
