My name is Elena Kaufman, and I've been designing and creating jewelry for about 30 years. I have been teaching how to create a variety of handmade crafts including. I love sharing my passion with others and passing it on to them.
For my creations I combine my personal imagination and influences from multiple cultures. All of my creations are handmade, using techniques such as wire wrapping, wire and bead crocheting, beading, and ancient knitting and crochet methods. Each piece is inspired by my many travels around the world, with great attention to detail and a careful selection of unique gems which were collected from different countries. Every stone chosen brings with it its unique qualities and energies, and is incorporated into a unique, hand crafted piece.

My one-of-a-kind pieces are environmentally friendly, made of exclusively natural stones and high quality glass beads, and most importantly, 100% handmade. I sell my crafts online and at art fairs all over the state.
