My name is Emilee Philips, and I am a jewelry artist based in Williamsville, New York. I am an alumni of the Accredited Jewelry Professional certificate program with the Gemological Institute of America, and a certified 200-hr Yoga Instructor.
I founded M. Lee Jewelry & Design after several years of making jewelry for fun, for birthdays, and holidays for my friends and family. What started as a hobby has turned into an inspired endeavor to explore and express the limitless possibilities in this versatile and timeless medium. My passion for both jewelry and yoga has proven to be very complementary, using the amazing energy of my yoga practice to tune in to my creativity and the spiritual significance of each unique gemstone. I love to learn, create, move, and explore, and I believe this translates beautifully into my design collections.
I am constantly in pursuit of new techniques, tools, and inspiration. I enjoy the challenge of making every design unique, and work best when I simply surrender to my creative process, and allow the piece to flow freely from me. I take great pride in the quality and construction of my jewelry. I plan to continue my education through the Gemological Institute of America’s jewelry design and manufacturing program where I will learn even more advance manufacturing techniques, and jewelry design theory and methods.
