"The word Etoile is french for star. I wanted a name that would reflect some of the inspiration that is a constant theme in my work."
What was the inspiration behind Etoile x Elizabeth Stone?
When I first discussed designing an exclusive collection for Local Eclectic with Alexis, we decided that a demi-fine line would differentiate the exclusive collection from my branded line. That would mean working in sterling silver with gold vermeil in stead of the usual gold plated brass that I create pieces in. I'm always inspired by celestial themes - stars, moons, and tons of glowy gemstones! Florals and rainbows are a consistent inspiration you'll see reflected in my work as well. I think the collection encapsulates all of these elements and is part dreamy, part whimsical while still remaining delicately feminine.
