We specialize in handcrafted jewelry, made with passion and purpose.

About Us

We are Josh and April Samuels, a husband and wife team from Tennessee. We get our inspiration from everywhere. We like to take simple ideas, simple techniques, and simple material and turn them into beautiful pieces for you to wear. Call it Bohemian Chic, Hippy Style, Country Rock and Roll or whatever you want. We call it a piece of our heart because every piece is handcrafted with care and thought, in design, color and comfort.

We get asked all the time where the name “ellajude” comes from. We started this company to allow our family to work around and with each other, so what better way than name it after the ones we love. We took “ella” from a shortened nick-name of our daughter Elyana and “jude” comes from our son Ezra’s middle name. Put them together and you get ellajude.
