Jill E. Kelly
Jill E. Kelly is a self-taught designer and the sole-proprietor of JillErin Aromatherapy & Jewelry. She’s been designing jewelry for over 20 years, and two years ago started on her journey learning about aromatherapy, and recently became a Certified Aromatherapist Practitioner.
When she first began designing jewelry, she was using beads and string, and now creates pieces using Silver, Oxidized Silver, and Gold-Filled wire. She combines these metals with freshwater pearls, gems, Swarozski crystals, and other fine materials. Jill has combined her two loves, and now offers aromatherapy bracelets, as well.
Drawing inspiration from her love of nature, the ocean, and organics, Jill uses wire wrapping and hammering techniques to create one-of-a-kind handmade jewelry. Her aromatherapy bracelets include a cherry wood logo charm, Acai beads, and crystals. Described as “light and airy,” Jill’s creations appear delicate, yet are designed and constructed with durability in mind. Her aromatherapy practice targets wellness and balance.
Jill’s 100% pure oils, which have been third-party tested, can help people to relax, release stress, energize and uplift, and even help with certain ailments, such as COPD, depression, allergies, cancer, etc. While not a medical doctor, she can advise you as to which oils are best suited to supplement your medical treatment.
Born in Boston, and spending much of her life in New England, Jill moved south to North Carolina in 2008 with her husband and two children. Her daughter Kyra loves to sit and design with her at the jeweler’s bench. Her husband hand-creates her display units using wood and linens. Quinlan, her son, is there to help make final decisions and a huge supporter!
When not making jewelry, Jill loves spending quality time with her family and friends, watching waves ripple through her NC ocean, and having a great IPA at local breweries!
