A new collection of jewelry and accessories including rings, necklaces, cuffs, bangles, earrings and leather handbags created by hand by Erik Maes. Having first been exposed to art metals while studying film at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I've worked tirelessly since to cultivate my own vision within jewelry design by pushing the processes and developing a unique relationship with the materials themselves. My jewelry is inspired by oceans, tides, rivers, flowers, trees, and microbiology. Cast from sculpted wax models, carved cuttlebone molds, or even deconstructed found objects, the innovation, style, and expert craftsmanship is evident in each piece. My jewelry, and now leather goods too, must be held and worn to be fully appreciated. Photos alone cannot capture the three dimensional and tactile quality of this beautiful collection.
*All jewelry pieces are cast in sterling silver or brass plated in 18 carat yellow or white gold. All jewelry components, including chains, posts, clasps, jump rings, ear wire, and plated items, are sterling silver.
