Who is Eli Speaks?
The Eli Speaks name is inspired by a character from Kate's family history called Eli Higgins. Eli's existence during the late 1800's is recorded in the barest form; a curious poem written about his lack of speech and a Fathers regret. Thought to be mute, his efforts to communicate to those around him were difficult.
"I have been fascinated with Eli's story since I discovered it in a family history book as a teenager. Through the creative process, I feel an affinity with his efforts to communicate. One must express their view of the world differently without the use of words. I feel that I am able to do this through the designing and making of precious objects. Miniature tokens that express the engaging facets of my environment."
All Eli Jewellery is designed and hand formed by Kate in the FiveTwelve Studio in Century Building, Melbourne CBD, Australia.
Kate has more than 10 years experience in the Jewellery trade, having learnt under some of Melbourne's most reputable Jewellers.
Kate's specialty is Art Deco inspired designs, and lately has been dabbling in combining this with ancient Mayan architecture (of Mexico) to produce the Mexicali Range.
