Inspiration comes from many different facets for artist Elizabeth Walker. Originally, her handmade jewelry line began - and mostly remains- an exclusive collection of completely one of a kind pieces.
These designs are mainly influenced by nature - her childhood in the lake region of the Midwest, love for the mountains, and current lifestyle on the East Coast of Florida.
As you may already know, Elizabeth uses the highest quality semi-precious and precious gemstones and freshwater pearls from around the world. These gems are only purchased in small quantities so that her colors and styles are always fresh, and no two pieces will feature the same gemstone combination.
However, in the past several years she has expanded her line to include small and micro batches of no more than 3-10 pieces at a time that are similar in style and include Shark Tooth, Sea Glass, Sea Shell and various Choker and Layering Necklace designs.
To help you better understand what it means when you're getting a One of a Kind versus a Small Batch piece, we've broken it down for you right here.
Each one of a kind piece is just that- IT CANNOT BE replicated and in order to preserve the individuality of each necklace, these one of a kind pieces won't be restocked once they sell out.
Every necklace is made to be as unique and sophisticated as the woman wearing it. Elizabeth challenges herself to constantly create new color combinations, patterns and textures using a variety of gemstones and fine metals. The one of a kind pieces that she creates are inspired by her travels and love of Mother Nature.
Almost every piece you come across designed by Elizabeth is a one of a kind creation. No two pieces are exactly alike as Elizabeth is constantly working hard to appeal to a worldwide audience and staying on trend in her own original and innovative way.
The small batch collections are another representation of Elizabeth's imagination and creativity.
Local materials like shark teeth, sea glass and sea shells that are harvested by our team are what make up our small batch collections. While all ocean treasures are unique, our team is able to produce more similar style pieces with these materials and follow a more streamlined pattern of production.
Other current, small batch collections can be seen in the form of our Druzy Quartz necklaces as well as Mother of Pearl, Crescent, Jasper Arrowhead, and Amethyst Stalactite necklaces.
Even these small batch pieces are made in quantities of 5 to 10 pieces at a time. They are not produced by the dozens or hundreds, as Elizabeth likes to retain the artistic craftsmanship of each piece.
In many cases, we find that each customer finds a special connection with our handmade pieces. Whether it reminds them of a special person, place or memory, our jewelry is set to inspire and is intentionally created to give you all the feels.
While trendy styles that go viral are popular for a reason, we believe that by not mass producing our pieces, the quality holds up to our - and most importantly - the customers standards.
Every piece is triple checked by our team for flaws and imperfections - and corrected before ever leaving the production bench. When you purchase a piece of jewelry from Elizabeth Sarah Collections, you have the guarantee that your piece has passed through a trained set of eyes and hands.
