Designer and maker Erin Claus crafts all of her jewelry by hand in Brooklyn, NY. After stumbling upon a jewelry class while attending SUNY New Paltz, Claus obtained a BFA in Metal. No other medium seemed quite as gratifying after learning to create wearable objects through traditional metalsmithing. Her design aesthetic is minimalistic and classic with emphasis on proportion, balance, and negative space. Claus firmly believes in sustainability, therefore all pieces are made from recycled metal and materials are sourced from local vendors.
