Ilyssa's work is inspired by the natural elements found in the mountains and desert. While living on the West Coast, Ilyssa was first introduced to these eye-catching elements. Completely taken by their beauty, Ilyssa began her jewelry-making career. She collected stones from the ocean to the desert, and over the years became inspired to learn more from experts about stringing beads to wire wrapping. Ilyssa maintains all of her learnings in the collection today. Using Moonstone, Labradorite, Amazonite and Quartz, just to name a few of her favorite elements.
Ilyssa Londa Jewelry came to fruition after she had designed The Stone Ring by recycling her own jewelry. Utilizing an older and heartfelt piece, she created a ring that was wearable and stylish. Eventually, recycling old jewelry became a creative and affordable way to design. Quickly, people started noticing Ilyssa’s designs and were extremely interested in purchasing her work. In the spring of 2015, Ilyssa made the grand decision to share her jewelry designs with the world. She still continues to work privately with clients, bringing new life to family heirlooms and old jewelry.
