Erica Koesler here from Erica Elizabeth Designs. It has been an amazing honor to been chosen to be a featured seller and to tell my story on Etsy this week.
I opened my Etsy account back in 2007 to sell my handmade jewelry collections while resting after leaving my long time company. I took me a while & a lot work to get my Etsy shop to the point where I could actually make money, but I never gave up.
With help from a cast of talented photographers my wedding accessory collections found their way to brides searching the many pages of designers on Etsy.
Many thanks to:
Melinda Kelley Photography, Yuna Leonard, Stephanie Williams of This Modern Romance, Briana Folkes of One Life Photography and most importantly Caroline Tran!
Whenever asked by Stephanie Williams of This Modern Romance if I want to collaborate in a shoot with her, I always say yes! This beautiful Moroccan inspiration shoot as seen on Green Wedding Shoes is one of the best she has created so far with gowns from Claire Pettibone’s Gothic Angeles Collections.

It has been a huge honor to have BHLDN pick up my collection for this 2015 bridal season. Here a are few images from the BHLDN 2015 “Day in the Sun” Lookbook with my Pemberton enamel hair comb shown with their Hollywood glamour gown.
Many thanks BHLDN!
Many thanks to all of my beautiful brides who have trusted to order from me over the Internet! I understand how difficult it must be to make such an important purchase without trying it on. My return rate is almost zero percent!
Love is all you need!
Love, love, love, love!

I must admit to having a weakness for Santos Dolls.
