As a young girl who spent summers in La Jolla, the beach and tide pools were Elena's playground. Elena's mother June was a sculptor and while she chiseled saints and angels out of stone, Elena would sit in June's Claremont studio playing dress up with their ancestor's rosary beads and coloring crosses on the shells she had collected. Elena inherited her mothers artistic inclination and received her BA in Fine Art & Interior Design which has been her profession for over 20 years.
Because of her love for the ocean and art history, she was inspired to visit beautiful surf destinations with her son Ryan, and historically significant sites across the globe. Throughout her travels she gathered sacred symbols and vintage shells knowing that some day she would design one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces to enhance the beauty of each woman that wears them. After her move to Laguna Beach she decided that day had come.
