Our range of handmade gifts and ceramic jewellery products
Our design inspiration comes from nature and how we make sense the natural world around us.
Nature creates patterns and forms are so intriguing whilst being highly tactile. Likewise we translate these natural forms into our visually appealing and tactile handmade ceramic products. Whilst our use of glazes and decoration seeks to compliment and enhance what we have found in nature. On the other hand we may take a natural pattern and use it on a regular shape to provide an interesting contrast.
Our Natural World products are created directly from items found in nature, and therefore are based upon items found while walking in the woods or from gardens. Nuts, wood, bark and other natural products are the inspiration for our handmade designs. Moreover our products aim recreate the essence of these natural forms in ceramic. This product range speaks to the world around us.
This range of products was inspired by the natural realm so we called it our Natural World Collection.
People react to the natural world through the creation of religious and secular symbols and icons. Indeed many of the ancient religious images show the inner strength of women and as a result form a core part of our product range. We hope you will find this strength reflected in our design and therefore find your inner strength through our products.
We have two product ranges inspired by the spirit of nature.
Eliziain Elements are celebrating strong women.
In particular we have generated jewellery and gift based on mythology and images. Also, we have incorporated imagery of strong women such singers, musicians and writers into our products. Click here to see what we have created.
Religious symbols and icons are the inspiration for this collection of products.
There are is a never ending range of images, icons and symbols that have been created to illuminate the spiritual and the unknown. We have incorporated only those images that resonant with the team at Eliziain Elements. We hope the speak to you and allow you to journey with a story conjured up by each piece. These images are much more than symbols they are attempts to confer meaning. The variety from the abstract to the ornate make our Spiritual Collection such a striking collection of jewellery.

This collection inspired by the sea and sea myths, and as a result shells and sea creatures play a major part in these designs. In addition, mythical creatures such as mermaids and selkies are also incorporated into the jewellery to tell the tales of the sea.
To reflect the mythology of the sea we call this range of products our Selkie Collection.

We have created a range of Christmas decorations and gifts for the winter months. Celebrate with our Christmas range.
Where to buy our handmade gifts and products
We use a smooth clay to produce our products as this allows for the creation of fine details. The clay is dried and put in for a bisque firing that turns the clay into ceramic. At this point the product is ready for glazing. At Eliziain Elements we use commercially purchased glazes as a result you can be certain they are safe and will not interact with your skin. In the main we used Mayco, Botz and Duncan glazes. After that the product is then fired for a second time in the kiln to turn the glaze into a glossy glass surface. Finally we then attach components to make up the jewellery item. We always use nickel free components in our products. See our making process in the images below.
