Erika uses techniques ancient and enduring to the art of jewelry making, such as wrapping, forging, and forming metal. These fundamental methods fully engage her hands and heart, in a soulful exchange with simple elements. Through texturing, firing, and oxidizing, patinas emerge reflective of patterns within nature. Working with natural materials such as wood, seeds, and stones keep her connected to the source of her inspiration.
Erika intention is to imbue each piece with gratitude for Mother Earth and a symbolic expression of her soothing beauty for each of us.
