Originally based in LA, our sole delight is in creating dainty unique handcrafted gold and silver designs inspired by messages that speak to your heart and have a special touch and a prayer that each design and message finds it wearer so you feel it was designed JUST FOR YOU at this moment in time for your personal journey. A portion of profits are also given to our partner non profits that care for victims of trafficking, military widows, children with autism, among other causes.
Owning an original Elida Designs piece is like a life coaching tool and clients typically purchase what draws them both design and message.
The designer, Elida, is a former licensed Marriage Family Therapist turned life coach with a Masters of Science degree from Northwestern University, and equates her designs to "object permanence" symbols that keep your focus and intentional mindset on your message. Countless studies show and any successful person will tell you, what they think about they bring about. Elida uses her jewelry as external focus points and prays each piece finds its owner.
*Contact Elida at email@example.com for recommendations for loved ones or to request a custom designs that hold a sentimental value. We love helping create meaningful designs using heritage jewelry you and your loved ones will treasure for years to come.

Swaziland Commerce Project
In 2014, the year Elida Designs was founded, the designer traveled to Swaziland Africa with the film Never a Neverlandwww.nnfilm.com to raise awareness and to provide hope for orphans in Swaziland.
Using her skills sets and resources and backed by a community of friends, Elida began a commerce project. Swaziland is one of the smallest countries in Africa and the UN believes it could be extinct in a couple decades as it boasts the highest HIV Aids epidemic in the world. 1 out of 3 are orphaned and 70% of Swazis are unemployed. The project provided training to local orphan and orphan workers, sets of tools for crafting, training and coaching, step by step guides to crafting designs dedicated to the project and materials to craft 250 jewelry pieces.
Elida Designs seeks to partner with boutiques in the US to distribute the designs with 50% of the proceeds going back towards sustaining our orphan artisan, his family and the community with easy water transport devices that transport water from wells to homes. Learn about this cause and many other through Elida Designs for a Cause.
