Meet the Team - Ella, our Brand Manager
Meet Ella, our Brand Manager.
Ella is our longest standing employee, joining Maya back in March 2015! She has watched the brand grow from a little workbench in Hatton Garden all the way to opening our third shop in King's Cross last year. No day is the same for Ella as she helps Maya oversee many areas of the business from branding to merchandising, from organising wholesale orders to helping design some of the collections.
Have you seen our Summer catalogue? Ella designed it, along with many other visuals you see on the website and in the shops. As Brand Manager, Ella oversees all the visuals and merchandising in our three stores and, along with the store managers and marketing calendars, she makes sure each shop and window is looking its best.
When she isn't at the computer she is often planning and brainstorming the next steps for the business, from launching collections to hiring new team members.
Having studied 'Jewellery and Applied Arts' Ella is also very hands on when it comes to our shops and has even hand made lots our beautiful jewellery. When Ella first started with Maya she helped handmade the bespoke pieces. Today she is still involved in the process: when our workshop in Islington becomes busy she will step in and meet customers for consultations and help them design their bespoke pieces. Helping design the perfect ring or necklace for someone is still one of her favourite parts of the job!
Did we mention Ella's is a bit of plant whisperer? If you've visited our stores you know we have many plants around our shops. Ella is great at taking care of them.. She can bring back to life even the saddest looking of plants!
Last but not least, Ella is also one of the best at keeping her jewellery looking new - more of her tips coming soon!
