Our work is like that group project back in grade school, but our group is made up of all the kids who cared the most in class ;)

We believe in the power of connection and the importance of telling your story. We are constantly striving to learn and grow and send our best work into the world, and we have fun while we do it. We believe we are given to give and that goods purchased with us should be good paid forward. We have huge hearts and hard working hands and we hope you feel both in our work!



Founder/Creative Director

With the encouragement (and nudge she needed) from her husband Dawson, Madeline officially started MIMOSA in 2008. She left her career as a landscape architect to pursue MIMOSA full time in 2012. She spent years doing all the things it takes to run a tiny startup and is now beyond thankful for the team that makes what we do possible. She spends her days designing jewelry, carving new pieces in wax, and helping out around the shop wherever needed.


Dawson Ellis

Owner/Head Stone Setter/Too many things to list "The Stoner"

Dawson, former Landscape Architect and serial entrepreneur, sold his company to join MIMOSA in August 2015. He does everything from make and create jewelry and setting stones to adding a second story to the shop when we need it. There is no way a title could capture what he brings to the table. Just trust us when we say he’s multi-faceted ;) In his free time, he's probably playing golf.



Head of Content Creation "Media Maestro"

Greta joined MIMOSA in August 2017. She coordinates and plans all of our content creation like a true maestro! Most days, you can find her writing blog posts & newsletters and creating content for social media. She also happily helps with too many other things to list! Away from us, she's probably tending to her growing garden, planning adventures, or walking her sweet rescue dog Daphne.



Buffing & Wax Technician/Stone Setting Specialist

Donna started out as a long time customer from Lafayette and eventually joined our team in 2018. She's the "Master of Making Things Shiny" — buffing and polishing jewelry to perfection. She also spends her time setting so many of the beautiful stones you see in our pieces (usually with her dog Jimi by her side :) She's a curator of all things vintage, a damn good DJ, and makes the sweetest beaded jewelry for her shop @shop_yes_no.



Shipping & Logistics Coordinator "Mayor of Ship’s Creek"

Samantha started full time at MIMOSA in 2019. She is head of all things shipping where she carefully fills and ships your orders and processes your returns & exchanges — all with her rescue, Millie (the sweetest shop dog) napping beside her. She loves numbers and spreadsheets and uses both to help us do our best work possible. When she isn't with us, she's likely working on one of her gorgeous stained glass pieces for her shop @lastlightglassworks.



Head of Production "Mum of Wax City"

Samara joined MIMOSA in 2019 as seasonal help and thankfully went full time in 2020! She started out on the buffing team but has worked her way into the wax room where she oversees production. She spends her days creating and building our wax trees that are cast into all of the jewelry we send into the world. She's a wildly talented artist from the UK focused primarily on botanical ink drawings. She sells her work online at samarathomas.com and at the Mid City Makers Market!


Anna Catherine Cuccio

Production Technician/ Casting Assistant "The Investor"

Anna Catherine joined MIMOSA full time in 2020 but she's been working arts markets with us for over 10 years! She’s always up for learning something new and is multi-talented enough to be good at all of it! She's taken on the roles of buffing and finishing jewelry, assisting in casting, and helping out with wax production. Besides all of that, she is one of the kindest hearted and hardworking souls we know.



Head Caster "Funky Flask Master Caster"

Andrew joined us in 2020 as a true jack-of-all-trades, ready and willing to try anything. He tried casting and was so good at it he became our head caster. He refined the process so well that he does it in half the time it used to take us. He's become a vital part of the buffing team, clipping freshly cast pieces, cleaning, shaping and prepping them for final buffing. When he's not casting or buffing, he's probably with Dawson building or fixing something around the shop!



Retail/Sales "Top Shoppe Girl"

Blair is tied with Anna Catherine for the first actual employee at MIMOSA. She was helping ship orders and assemble jewelry back when it was just Madeline in a closet-sized office starting out. She's modeled for us over the years but officially joined MIMOSA full-time in May 2022.

On the days she's not helping customers at the Shoppe, she's visiting wholesale customers.

In her free time, she's hanging out with her husband Andrew, (our master caster), and their sweet pups!




Chloe joined us as part time holiday help and it didn't take long to realize we had to have more of her! Between her experience in retail and her warm spirit she makes every visit in the Shoppe special. We are excited to have her on full time as of January and look forward to getting to know her more! In her free time she is probably buying flowers for someone or hand making the most thoughtful gifts.




Ava felt like family from the start (both her parents graduated in Landscape Architecture at LSU - a few years before Dawson & Madeline :) She's done everything from help paint our pelican mural to quality control and helping customers at the Shoppe. She hangs out with us after school and on weekends and we're thankful to have her whenever we can!




Jade began august 2022. Her favorite part about working at mimosa is (everything) working with a talented & dedicated team. In retail, i love meeting people and hearing their sweet memories and stories connected to the pieces they’ve bought or been gifted.

Jade is from Alexandria, LA and enjoys learning new recipes, listening to comedy, self help, true crime, and every podcast in between!

When she’s not at mimosa she can be found working as a social worker or as a photobooth tech for weddings and events around Louisiana :)




Caroline started working with us in the summer of 2022. She works at the Shoppe/ and her favorite part is cleaning customer’s vast array of pieces and admiring their “vintage mimosa” :)
Caroline is from Welsh, Louisiana. She is a graduate in landscape architecture and loves learning about the different plant life of Louisiana, painting, cooking new and interesting food, and vintage shopping!
