Our Story (So Far...)

Who am i?

Hi There! I'm so excited you're here. My name is Emily Brewer, and I am the head designer and maker of all things Creek+Elm. I'm a married mom of 3 (+1 fur baby) and we live in McFarland, Wisconsin- a suburb of Madison. My husband Zach helps out with a lot of our marketing, and the kids even get to help with fulfilling orders when we get swamped, so this really is a family effort.

Doing things differently

Many of the big, fashionable statement earrings available today are either made from animals or in factories overseas using questionable materials. I believe that every woman should get the chance to feel and look beautiful, without having to sacrifice her belief system. At Creek+Elm we do things differently, so all of our beautiful and fashionable products are made by hand in Wisconsin using sustainably sourced materials like cork and vegan faux leather. Creek+Elm creates beautiful, fashionable earrings and accessories for you both ethically and sustainably.

Humble beginnings

Creek+Elm creates beautiful, fashionable earrings and accessories ethically and sustainably. By hand-making our products right here at my home studio in Wisconsin we give busy ladies like you the opportunity to look and feel fabulous.

By the way, since everything is handcrafted to order, it might take a little longer to get than you're used to in today's Amazon drone at your door in the next two hours world. My turn-around time is 5 business days from when you place your order to when it's shipped, so that means you should see it within 10-14 days.

I am so confident that you will absolutely LOVE your earrings that if you don't you can return them for FREE in the first 30 days after you receive them! I am always looking for feedback and love happy customers, so feel free to email me at emily@creekandelm.com if you have ANYTHING you need!
