An ever growing collection of jewelry and accessories including rings, necklaces, earrings, cuffs, bangles and leather handbags each handmade by myself, Los Angeles-based designer, Erik Maes. 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, flowerbuds, treebark 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 jewelry pieces are cast in sterling silver or brass plated in 14 carat yellow gold. All jewelry components, including chains, posts, clasps, jump rings, ear wire and plated items, are sterling silver.
