Hello! ⚡

I’m Laura Brooks and I am the Owner and Maker behind Ellebrux.

Ellebrux began in 2012 with a focus in painting and has expanded to a full line carefully crafted jewelry, gifts and artwork. I love to mix bold color with natural materials while exploring new ways of making. I sell my work online, in shops, and at indie craft shows. If you see me at a show, say hello! I love to meet new people, and I would love to tell you more about my business.

I live in Cincinnati with my husband Brett Valls, Ellebrux’s brand designer and owner of Bearing Creative, and with our sweet cat Patty Melt.

I received my BFA at Ohio University in the beautiful town of Athens, Ohio.
