Hello, I'm Elle, thank you so much for visiting my website! I’ve always been creative, studying Jewellery Design & Silversmithing at university, but my weaving journey began while pregnant with our first child, Hudson. I had this overwhelming urge to nest and nurture and began collecting plants and wanting to surround myself with calming soft textures. I feel that handmade pieces should be cherished for years; my pieces are made with passion and inspired by the fact that no two pieces will ever be identical, much like nature’s unique beauty.
So what does Bamaluz mean? Bamaluz is a beach in St. Ives, Cornwall. It’s known as the 'secret beach' in history books. It may not be a large beach, but in my heart when my feet touch the sand and I look around me, I feel at peace from all the dramas of daily life. Here is where I get my inspiration, from the many feelings this one small beach can evoke, feelings of calmness and tranquility.
I’m passionate about all my products and packaging incorporating ethically sourced materials wherever possible. By purchasing my products you will also be supporting some charities too (listed below). The driftwood I source from the UK or comb the beaches myself every time I visit Cornwall and Devon. The brass pieces I use are made in Europe from reputable companies and the pre-formed wood pieces (hoops and beads) are sourced from companies that use untreated wood from sustainable forests.
