Casual Ore Formal was named for the direction of Elizabeth’s work, since many pieces can be worn in both an everyday and black tie environment. Pushing the limits of design while still revisiting traditional methods, best described her creative process when making jewelry. Creating a variety of wearable art, Casual Ore Formal has a range of stock items on hand. However, Elizabeth enjoys working one on one with individuals discussing design ideas and exploring the creative processes together through custom work. 

Creating a solid base academically, Elizabeth has been working in her craft of metals for 10 years now. First graduating from UW-Eau Claire (BA) with art and business. Continuing on, to become well rounded in the field, Elizabeth sought training at other institution for differing perspectives, studying at UW-La Crosse; University of Limerick, Ireland; Kilkenny School of Crafts, Ireland; Penland School of Crafts, North Carolina. Throughout this time she has also held various apprenticeships gaining insight into business dealings and the retail jewelry industry. Then through her passion, Casual Ore Formal was born.
