Ellouise Padilla, Designer and Artist of “Ellouise Originals” has continued her family’s traditions of jewelry making that have been passed down for many centuries. Born and raised in the “Santo Domingo Pueblo” New Mexico, Ellouise started designing and creating jewelry at the young age of ten.
Ellouise continues to be inspired by her Pueblo’s traditional Heishi (Hee-Shee) bead making techniques. Known for her authentic handcrafted designs, her “Reversible Necklace Collection” has accelerated her to the top of her field. Today, an award-winning artist, her work is featured in many museums, fine art shows and galleries throughout the country.
