Eli & Barry became a dream of mine over three years ago when I toured my family's jewelry manufacturing company in Colorado Springs, Colorado. My grandfather had acquired the company with the hopes that jewelry production would never be outsourced to China. Boy, was he wrong. Many jewelry manufacturers outsource most if not all of their production outside the United States. With that reality weighing on me, I had the idea to start my own company with products made locally. It was a way to honor my grandfather's original vision and create the type of company that I believe in: one with local production. Originally, all of my offerings were produced in house in the factory in Colorado Springs. Eventually, I learned how to make jewelry and, in 2016, clothing. So most everything you see in my online store is made by me and, if it's not made by me, it's made in that small factory in the Springs. The name of that small factory is Elliott Barry, which inspired the name of my own business.
I am also a personal style blogger at lilyschlosser.com. Blogging for 5 years has allowed me to explore and grow with my personal style. My blogging career undeniably informs my work at Eli & Barry.
