jewelry design studio is nestled in the redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains
along the Monterey Bay of California.
As a fine jewelry designer artist, Elaine is the heart and soul of EVB Design signature fine jewelry art. She primarily draws inspiration
for her work from nature. Nature continuosly renews her spirit as she feels the gentle breezes and listens to the soothing sounds of the Pacific Ocean waves in the Monterey Bay or as she strolls amongst the majestic Santa Cruz Mountain redwood forests.
Many of Elaine's jewelry pieces reflect her appreciation and love of nature through her contemporary flowing designs
which often capture the essence of flora and the sea as well as other forms of nature.
Elaine has a B.A. degree in Art from the
State University of New York (1979). While she was attending SUNY as an art major, she took
a jewelry class and fell in love with this particular three dimensional form of art
and relished the fluid movement that she was able to create in a wax jewelry sculpture. She continued to focus her creative energies through the medium of fine jewelry creations by partaking additional jewelry art courses.
she graduated college she moved to Santa Cruz County, CA in 1980 and worked as a manager in an established lost wax jewelry design shop.
She continued to develop her own unique signature designer style of blending fine art and fine jewelry at the wholesale level during her eight years at the jewelry casting studio and was ready
to go out and exhibit on her own.
EVB Design fine jewelry art was born at the retail level in 1989. In the meantime, Elaine continued her formal fine jewelry art education by participating in various workshops in San Francisco as well as attending classes at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Art in San Francisco. She also completed the diamond course work at the G.I.A. gemological institute in Santa Monica,CA. Elaine nutured her designs,
allowing them to blossom. "Sleek, Simple, Elegant"

California and Arizona. She is currently showing at the Artisan's Gallery in Scotts Valley. Elaine prefers working directly with the fine jewelry art collector and currently exhibits her work at contemporary juried California art shows.
focus of my work is to create asymmetrical harmony and balance. And
to create motion through the use of light in concert with the movement
of the wearer..." -
