Southern Jewelry Designers
The Founding Mimosa Team
Mimosa Handcrafted began when Madeline Ellis took her life long passion for making and pursued it after her day job, late into the nights, on weekends and any free moments in-between. As a Landscape Architect by day she craved creating & making with her hands and found making jewelry satisfied. Mimosa eventually became her full time endeavor and is now joined by her husband, Dawson Ellis & Courtney Gay (both former Landscape Architects as well!).
Madeline's role now is focused on new designs, direction & mission of Mimosa. Dawson is head of all molding, casting and stone setting. Courtney manages production, orders, shipment & customer communication. The Mimosa team is rounded out with Grace and Lainey both working hard part time to buff & assemble finished pieces.
Madeline is committed to creating wears and wares with story and soul. Where she once used her creativity to design spaces for people to have experiences in, she now creates pieces for the wearer to have experiences with. Her pieces tell the story of everything from culture to history to landscape and invite conversation and opportunity for connection around things that matter to the heart.
Mimosa uses the ancient art of Lost Wax Casting to create bronze, sterling silver and 14k gold wearable pieces. Each piece is created start to finish in their studio, nestled behind their South Louisiana home.
