Elppin was born in 2016 while Carina was studying design in London. By 2018 she launched the Original Collection, and her designs been exploring motifs of women's bodies found in the natural and made world ever since.
Elppin aspires to transcend adornment, understanding jewelry as a powerful symbol of celebration and empowerment. All our pieces are humble explorations of the timeless beauty and grace of the female form that we find in the natural and made world.
