Meet the Maker
Hi there! My name is Ellen. I am the woman behind Keelin Design.
I am the jewelry designer, content creator, packer of your lovely orders, e-mail correspondent, photographer, webdesigner,...
Yes, Keelin Design is a one-woman show. And I'm loving every second of it!
Every piece of jewelry is crafted one at a time, all by me in my little atelier in Anzegem (Belgium).
All Keelin Design jewelry is inspired by all the beautiful things in our world, from colors that can be found in nature to buildings, the moon, cats,...
Sometimes I have a clear idea of what I want my next collection to be like, other times I let the materials and colors inspire me to create something special.
Since I find it really important that each jewel is as unique as the person who will be wearing it, I love to create jewelry items that are one of a kind, with only a handful of items made in multiples.
This means that you're likely to purchase an item that's completely unique to you.
- Born and raised in Belgium
- Happily married since 2008
- Mom of 3 lovely kiddos (2 boys & 1 girl)
- Personal staff of 2 Maine Coons (Aya & Arashi)
- Jewelry (obviously - especially earrings)
- Sweet cocktails
My adventure started at a small table in my living room. Where the lack of a creative outlet and the frustrating search for the right jewelry came together, my passion for creating jewelry arose.
In this period of time, I was enjoying an education as image consultant, where I discovered my passion for beauty and fashion. As much as I loved learning about colors and styling, I soon discovered that my true passion lays with (creating) jewelry.
"Jewelry has the power to be that one little thing that makes you feel unique."
Since October 1, 2014 I am more than happy to share this passion with you.
With Keelin Design it is my mission to make you feel more confident and to really accentuate your unique personality.
"Jewelry is more than an accessory. It is a way of expressing your individuality."
Our products bring quality materials together in a unique design. Every jewel is created with great care, for you to enjoy for years to come.
It brings me so much joy to be able to be creative in such a lovely way. I hope to inspire you with my jewelry, and I hope your new favorite jewels will brighten your day as much as your order brightens mine.

Why shop at Keelin Design
MADE WITH PASSION
Making jewelry is a real passion! It is therefore important that I can continue to develop myself creatively. I like to look for new materials and to test new techniques.
In this way I can give free rein to my own creativity and I can offer an extensive range of jewelery in which everyone can find something to their liking.
I love working with natural elements such as wood, leather, (semi) precious stones and freshwater pearls, this in combination with Stainless Steel, (Gold or Silver Plated) brass and nickel-, lead- & cadmium-free metal.
All parts are always carefully selected and put together to achieve a beautiful end result.
Are you afraid of allergic reactions? Don't worry, all our materials are nickel-free!
Do you prefer (Gold Plated) 925 Silver? Or would you like a piece of jewelry in 14K Gold?
Please contact me without any obligation. I like to look at the possibilities.
I consciously choose to make unique pieces and jewelry in limited editions, which makes every gem something special.
"Every handmade jewel is as unique as the person who wears it!"
Your jewelry is well protected in a eco-friendly cardboard box with foam inlay, or in a cute satin jewelry bag.
For shipping, we use a strong cardboard box which is made of recycled materials.
