Today we’d like to introduce you to Ellie Polsky.
Ellie, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Here is the founder video that I have created that really paints a picture of my story more than words probably can.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Building Just Be Jewelry, things have just naturally been falling into place, I’m not gonna say there’s been zero obstacles though. This is my first business so learning how to build something from the ground up has been hard. Having to self-motivate myself everyday and learn all the things needed to grow a business has been tough. I’d say the most challenging part of this journey has been internal. It’s been hard to set aside my ego and let go of these expectations of perfection for my jewelry pieces and for the business as a whole. To instead embrace those imperfections and take an out of the box approach implement that way of thinking into my companies core values. It’s also been a challenge to have that courage to step up and open up about my vulnerabilities in such a public way but in doing so I’ve been able to create something that is truly resonating with other people. It’s opened up the door for others to share how their feeling as well.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am an artist that creates intentional jewelry. I have two jewelry lines under my main Just Be Jewelry brand. One of my lines is my Just Be Natural Collection which are one-of-kind jewelry pieces made from resin and random things that are just naturally beautiful. Just Be Breath Pieces™ are my newest line of Just Be Jewelry which are jewelry pieces that mirror what our breath may look/feel like in our bodies. This jewelry is not just for fashion but also for connection which I believe sets me apart from other jewelry companies. I also hold workshops that teach people how to create their own Breath Pieces. These workshops involve breath work, a therapeutic practice of drawing your breath, and jewelry making. I am so proud that I have created this beautiful way of looking at our emotions. Using fashion as a way to support mental health.
In terms of your work and the industry, what are some of the changes you are expecting to see over the next five to ten years?
What is so exciting about the fashion/jewelry industry is that it’s ever-changing. With my line specifically I have some innovative plans for the future of jewelry that I can’t wait to share!
