Ellen spent a lifetime as a jewelry designer selling to stores such as Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue as well as spas, jewelry stores and royalty. Her favorite decade of designing was when she traveled back and forth to Los Angeles from her home in San Diego creating jewelry for some television's most beloved characters, including those on The West Wing, ER, 90210, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Passions and many more. In an era before social media she was happy to be doing what she loved in such a fun and creative environment meeting wonderful people whose work she had admired for years. Several years ago she and her daughter moved to the rocky mountains and started an off grid ranch focusing on bio dynamic, micro organic farming and using horses to aid veterans in overcoming PTSD while teaching small scale organic farming. The challenges of living on wind and solar at almost 9000' have taught them both a great deal about self reliance. They can be found at WhiteCrowRanchSLV.com. Ellen splits her time between the ranch and traveling solo in The USA and abroad. Still designing jewelry for a few clients and helping others launch their businesses while researching her newly discovered royal roots.
