Ellen may only be just 12 years old, but she knew the colours that looked best in clothes for her and therefore which beads to suit her pale complexion.

She chose delicate porcelain beads with swirls of grey and light orange and coordinated those with reddish brown seed beads as well as metallic silver ones. Ellen maintained the same pattern on her earrings once she was finished with designing her anklet. The "stiletto" style of earrings is a popular alternative to chandelier earrings. Perhaps their thin profile helps give the illusion of long, slender necks which is a good thing.
