About designer Erik Maes

    Based in Los Angeles, my design business is an ever growing collection of handmade jewelry and accessories including rings, necklaces, earrings, cuffs, bangles, leather goods and homewares. Having first been exposed to the beauty of art metals while studying film at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I've worked tirelessly to cultivate my own vision within jewelry design by pushing the processes and developing unique relationships with the materials themselves. My jewelry is inspired by natural textures, ocean waves, topography, rivers, flower buds, tree bark and more. Cast from sculpted wax models, carved cuttlebone molds and even deconstructed found objects, the innovation, style, and expert craftsmanship is evident in each piece. My jewelry and leather goods must be held and worn to be fully appreciated. Photos alone cannot capture the three dimensional and tactile quality of this uniquely handmade collection. 

*All my work is cast in solid sterling silver unless noted and plated in a heavy 5 microns of 14 carat yellow gold. All jewelry components, including chains, posts, clasps, jump rings, and ear wire are sterling silver.

Since each piece is handmade, please allow 2-4 weeks to ship.
