about us

Established by designer Elyse Tolles in 2015, Elysian Theory is a small-batch accessories brand focused on creating sculptural, dreamy, and effortlessly artful pieces for your pretty days. 

Our designs are inspired by Art Deco elegance, the juxtaposition of contemporary design and old-world femininity, playing dress up, and the confidence that comes from looking your best. The antithesis to mass produced fast-fashion, Elysian Theory jewelry embodies intentionality and serves as wearable art.

Founder and maker Elyse Tolles has been exploring the possibilities of polymer clay since 2015, and her work has been a driving force in the recent renaissance of polymer clay art throughout the United States. Elysian Theory has been featured in partnerships with Anthropologie and Michaels Stores, featured in Etsy's Featured Shops series, and chosen as a finalist in Etsy's first ever Design Awards, an international design competition.
