Founded in 2002 by Carolyn & Ellie Stutzman, Alluring Body makes fine jewelry that reflects a dedication to uncompromising quality. Our standards exceed the caliber of most jewelry stores, including luxury brands.
Our jewelry is handcrafted in New York City and Sarasota by exceptional artisans. New York City jewelers are recognized for their craft and have been doing so for generations. The Alluring Body design studio is located in sunny Sarasota. Sarasota embraces the arts, nature, and small businesses - values we strongly support as well. Keeping things in the United States means we can limit our environmental impact, oversee our whole supply chain, and ensure our employees are paid a living wage.
Ellie Stutzman | CEO & Lead Designer
Ellie draws inspiration from nature and her degree in Industrial Design. During a metal smithing college elective, she gained an appreciation for finely made jewelry. In 2004 she moved to Seattle to explore the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest and her love of jewelry. During her time in Seattle, she launched several successful online jewelry boutiques. Today she continues to design jewelry and lives in Sarasota Florida.
Carolyn Stutzman | COO & Lead Jeweler
Carolyn has always enjoyed the satisfaction of creating beautiful objects with her hands. She studied sculpture in college and learned the art of goldsmithing at the Revere Academy in San Francisco. In 2010, she found a new passion in the finer details of stone setting - a skill that was honed by master jeweler, Jim Dailing, who mentored her at his mountain home in Bend Oregon.
