If you ask her, Erica will tell you she was born to make jewelry, that it’s in her blood. Her grandfather, a dentist, crafted jewelry as a hobby using scrap metal. The two never met, but he passed on his legacy and name, and Erica carries on the tradition with her own twist. Her jewelry has a distinctively bohemian, vintage feel; and the textured surfaces, antiqued patinas and slight imperfections make her pieces incredibly wearable. Her work is relaxed, but it’s quite refined. The cast brass is hand-finished for strength and a just-right antiqued surface, and every item has a solid heft to it.
