Elizabeth Thompson has always had a fascination with the past—with folklore and storytelling, with our beginnings and our roots. “History is something that comforts and empowers us.

Elizabeth Thompson has always had a fascination with the past—with folklore and storytelling, with our beginnings and our roots. “History is something that comforts and empowers us. It brings us back,” says the jewelry designer. “We express this through our style. We use it to remind ourselves who we are and where we come from.”
Maybe that’s why, in 2006, she named her coolly antiquated jewelry line Elizabeth Knight after her two grandmothers and why her debut, Ground and Water, was driven by the broken-down bones and organic objects she found on nature walks. The next four offerings drew from bygone cultures: ancient Egypt, the Viking era, Greek mythology, and a retro American South.
Six years ago, after graduating from SCAD, Elizabeth uprooted herself from Georgia and headed north to New York City where she opened
her own studio-slash-collaborative artist workspace in Brooklyn called FluxWork where she hand-makes all of the jewelry in her line. With five collections under her belt, she’s curious to see where the line will go from here and—of course—to get to the bottom of where it all came from. As she says, “I’m still trying to figure out where inside of me that inspiration is drawn from.” —lydia woolever
