Our Founder

An open letter from our founder:


Hi y’all! My name is Emily and I am incredibly blessed to be the founder of EM.K Designs & Co. I am THRILLED that you are here! Thank you for being a part of my story as I find myself #healingthroughcreativity. My journey has not always been easy, but my past will always be my motivation to continue healing.


After greatly struggling with anorexia, depression, and trauma-induced anxiety, I felt worthless, numb, exhausted, and insignificant; I felt that my life and I had no value. I was fairly certain I would never feel the smallest ounce of joy again. After three rounds or 200+ days of rehabilitating treatment, and the greatest support system I could ever ask for, I am on the path to healing.


I started designing jewelry in 2017, however my heart was not fully in it at that time. After hitting the lowest low and having rock bottom be the ground in which I was building myself up from, I fell absolutely in love with the creative process of crafting jewelry by hand. I truly believe that the therapeutic benefits of the creative process of designing and making carefully crafted, one-of-a-kind jewelry is helping heal me and helping me fall in love with life again. I truly, truly am #healingthroughcreativity.


Thank you, again, for stopping by and I hope you find a piece of yourself in one of our designs. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions, concerns, or comments! I love custom orders and I love our customers. YOU are the reason this shop is here to stay. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and together, let’s continue #healingthroughcreativity.


With all my love,
