Thursday // Alumni Feature – Eli Watkins

Eli Watkins


When I was 10 years old my parents gave me a Christmas gift called The Ancient Art of Wire Jewelry Making.  I was very disappointed.  Little did I know that they knew me better than I knew myself.  I have been making jewelry ever since.









I invested in a camera when I was sixteen an discovered another passion, photography.  A friend told me about IPS and I signed up to take Prizewinning photography 1 & 2. Through a Landscape course and Graphic Design course, I was helped to further my understanding in photography.  I have since toured with IPS to several countries and have enjoyed exploring new places and learning about different cultures.


I decided to combined two of my favorite things Jewelry and Photography.  It has been a satisfying learning process and an exciting journey for me.  In 2012, with the help of a childhood friend, I launched my jewelry website, Especially Eli.

My passion is making unique, one-of-a kind pieces of jewelry for every occasion. All jewelry is handmade with love as I put my own creative touch and time into every piece.
