Baja Girl’s story started with a $150 soldering class. Owner and Founder Elise Sanchez decided to start producing handmade bracelets in 2018 after being inspired by the beauty of Baja. It’s where her and her husband lived and managed a surf camp for three years, and she reflects its beauty in her gold bracelets and shell bangles. Elise decided to take a soldering class at a local bead store, and her unique style of hammered bangles and handmade bracelets was born.
Her collections are inspired by beach and desert, ranging from gold bangles to beaded bracelet stacks for both adults and children. Elise also designs many matching mother daughter bracelets as part of her collections to reflect the relationship between family and nature.
Elise’s makes her beautiful jewelry for a great cause, and also works hard to be an inspiration to other entrepreneurs like her. Elise loves building the Baja Girls community by sharing photos of their customers wearing their bracelets at their beach weddings, special events, and travels. Elise is a passionate entrepreneur and loves to see dreams grow into reality. She lives in Orange County with her husband and their Baja Mexico rescue dog, Solo.
Solo found them down in Punta San Carlos, Mexico. He was spotted on an evening ride on a nearby mountain bike trail. He was most likely abandoned by his malnourished mother and had to fend for himself. He was about 6 weeks old when he was found, and has been a welcome member of Elise’s family for the last three years.
Thanks to the inspiration from the Baja Girl community, and of course from Solo, Baja Girl has produced a new line of handmade bracelets. We are committed to donating 60% of the proceeds to the Friends of Baja Animals, a non-profit whose entire focus is protecting and saving the dogs and abandoned animals in Baja, Mexico. Baja Girl will also volunteer and hold events to raise money for this cause. All thanks to Solo.
Baja Girl exists to provide beautiful jewelry the desert and beach girl, while giving back to animals in need.
