     mimosa interview

    MIMOSA is Madeline & Dawson Ellis, a husband-and-wife team who graduated in landscape architecture but now work side by side as full-time jewelers.They’re joined by an A-team of wildly talented women. Each piece is created start to finish in their South Louisiana home studio using the ancient art of lost-wax casting.

    MIMOSA Handcrafted began when Madeline took her life long passion for making and pursued it after her day job, late into the night, on weekends and with any free moments in between. As a Landscape Architect, she craved creating and making with her hands and found making jewelry satisfied. Eventually, MIMOSA became her full time endeavor. Since then, she's been joined by her husband, Dawson, and a team of hardworking ladies. Using the ancient art of lost wax casting, they bring each bronze, sterling silver and 14K gold wearable piece to life in the studio behind Madeline and Dawson's Louisiana home. 

    Madeline's 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.

    Owner/Creative Director

    Madeline has been making jewelry in one form or another for more than 20 years. She created MIMOSA in 2008 and took the business full time in 2013. She turns her ideas into carefully hand-carved wax creations to be cast into metal and focuses on the direction and mission of MIMOSA.



    Owner/ Designer/ Shop Construction & Maintenance

    Dawson, a former Landscape Architect as well, joined 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 ;)



    Director of Fulfillment/Finishing & Stone Setting

    Courtney has been with MIMOSA since November 2015 and is also a former member of the Landscape Architect family. She works with Kris to finish freshly cast pieces, sizes rings, shapes cuffs and all assembly. She makes sure your orders are filled lightening fast and inventory is stocked and ready to go. Most recently, she’s expanded to stone setting those pretty little turquoise you see everywhere ;)



    Production Specialist

    Grace came to MIMOSA in June 2017 with casting experience she was eager to put to work! She's all about production from building wax pieces to pouring melted metal, she takes the ideas from their wax to wearable form! Most recently we’ve been working to cut down on carving time by using her skills with the milling machine. She cuts the wax base for a design and hands it off to Madeline to finish the details.



    Director of Communications

    Greta joined MIMOSA in August 2017 with a background in mass communication. She manages most forms of communication! She writes blog posts and newsletters, creates content, works events, manages our schedules and supplies and generally keeps the shop running like a machine.



    Kris is the newest member of Team MIMOSA and we're happy to have her! She takes jewelry fresh from each week's cast and makes it all bright, shiny and ready to find its new home. She invests our flasks (pours the molds) and recently has been dabbling in casting! Not shown in the main picture- don’t worry we’re planning an update photo session soon!
