Ellis + Noronha launches with Wolf and Badger
Ellis + Noronha is a London based hand embroidery brand created and run by Charlie Ellis and Abigail Noronha. After graduating from the Royal School of Needlework in 2019, both with degrees in hand embroidery, Charlie and Abi went on to create their brand Ellis + Noronha. In 2020, they launched their first jewellery collections. Now, coming to the end of 2021, Ellis + Noronha have created their first exclusive collection for Wolf and Badger. Ellis + Noronha jewellery are all one-off pieces. Each design is unique, and created by Charlie and Abi in their homes, with each piece taking between 1 and 5 hours to make. They use traditional hand embroidery techniques that have such a rich history, combined with modern and wearable design. This combination creates interesting and unique pieces, that are all made love, care and attention. A really important part of creating their pieces is to ensure that the handmade element wasn’t lost, and that every customer feels that they are receiving something special, made just for them. Hand embroidery, although traditional with huge historical references, can be reworked in a way that makes fresh and modern work, and that was a big driving force behind Charlie and Abi creating Ellis + Noronha. Their first collection for Wolf and Badger is inspired by organic, fluid shapes. Using soft lines and natural curves to create unique and unusual shapes. The colours are neutral to reflect this organic feeling, with a signature touch of shine and sparkle coming from the metal embellishment. These pieces vary from the wearable everyday stud, to the statement glamorous earring.
