by Yellow Elm
We are Elizabeth and Melissa, two best friends who met over chips at the 4th grade lunch table. Very conveniently, we fell in love with brothers...Melissa met the love of her life at Elizabeth's wedding, who just happened to be the grooms brother. We make creative accessories for the trend-setter. Our pieces are all hand-felted using wool from a small farm in Tennessee, and we emphasize the use of found objects and repurposed materials in our work. Yellow Elm headbands, brooches, hair pins, and clutches are the perfect statement pieces to add to any outfit. We create what we love, and so it's easy to be excited about our product and spread the word.

Our work space is a work-in-progress. In our heads, we work in a very chic studio with modern artwork on the walls, big windows, and comfy, bright patterned chairs to sit in while we stitch. We have big metal tubs for felting, beautiful vintage teapots to heat up our water for tea time and felt-making, and clean, organized supply shelves. Throw in a darling desk for bookkeeping, the latest Anthropologie catalog, and some Nora Jones. In reality, our coffee tables, closets, and bedrooms are bursting with supplies and inventory. Someday we'd love to have our own studio/boutique. But for now, we are happy letting Yellow Elm crowd up our lives.


  1. They are soo sweet! I think if their make believe studio became a reality I would have to pop on over for a cup of tea:)

  2. I think that we would all like to come for a visit! Will you put on a cup of tea?

  3. Of course we will! We would love to chat over a cup of tea :)

  4. How cute! What a fun story! :) I like their idea of the perfect workspace... sounds like a dream for me too!
