Eliza Limehouse has family roots in Charleston as old as the city itself. As a ninth generation native, Eliza happily attended galas and charity events around town growing up, mixing and mingling with other socialites. After graduating a year early from Clemson, she returned to Charleston to work in her family business, Limehouse Properties, by managing and renovating the Charleston hotels in their portfolio. Not one to limit herself to one business venture, she also founded a local jewelry line, Snaffle Bit Bracelet Company, which she began in high school. With her business partner Allston Pate, Eliza co-founded Plantation Candle Company and is ambitiously looking to launch an additional fine jewelry, e-commerce line at elizalimehouse.com. When she’s not keeping busy in the office, Eliza is also signed with TouT Models and appears in regional campaigns and fashion shows.
Eliza is a passionate advocate for animals. She grew up riding horses on her family plantation Airy Hall, leading her to become a polo player, and taking care of her family dogs and other pets. She has worked with her mother since a young age to rescue and foster as many dogs and horses as she is able. For her future, Eliza wants to own her own farm where she can continue to rescue animals and hopes to become a politician to bring awareness to animal rights issues that she wants changed.
