LEL (el-e-el) Jewelry is a fine jewelry shop featuring original creations by Ellie Lee.
Each piece is meticulously designed from raw ideas and crafted with love from her studio in DC metro. From the studio directly to you, the works are a reflection of Ellie Lee's understated yet unique style, often showcased with gemstones and mixed metals. From time to time, she collaborates with a team of the most highly talented artisans and craftsmen who bring the designs to life.
Ellie believes jewelry should be worn and not kept in the box. Jewelry should blend in to the beauty each person has. No two people are the same, so why should one buy mass-produced jewelry?
As a daughter of Korean-American immigrants, Ellie has first hand knowledge that hard work and honesty pays off. After studying Jewelry & Metalsmithing at Rhode Island School of Design, Ellie worked at a custom jewelry shop for the last decade. From wedding rings to cuff links, Ellie has successfully helped hundreds of customers craft their high quality one-of-a-kind jewelry. She continues her path with LEL Jewelry, with a deeper understanding of what people want from their jewelry.
