About Ellen Cowne

Ellen Cowne


I love jewelry. From the time of childhood I loved stones, whether it be river rock or semi-precious stones. I have always loved a spirit of the mischievous and anything different. As a child, I braided grass around rocks and wore it as a necklace. As a teenager in the sixties, I created jewelry in the form of macramé with rocks webbed into the twine. It was during this time that I developed a love for the non-linear. Anything looking different and anything to do with the out of the ordinary was intriguing to me. During this era, I also developed a love for various stones that emanated energy – stones like turquoise, coral, amethyst, and lapis.
During my early adult years, I had no time to make jewelry because I was busy being mother and teacher, but I always scribbled designs that I would use later. It was during this time that I fell in love with the serenity and the drama of the black onyx.
For the last several years, I’ve concentrated on jewelry design using primarily silver and copper as the base medium and enhancing these metals with the stones I’ve always loved. I use lapis, amethyst, coral, onyx, turquoise and other semi-precious stones. The form of most of my pieces is non-linear with a tone of the mischievous. My inspiration comes from nature and the uninhibited spirit of my grandchildren. The silver is either satin or polished sterling, and the copper has been sprayed to prevent tarnish. I want my designs to reflect a vibrant personality and to bring beauty and a sense of fun to the wearer.
