SNEAK PEEK WITH MEGHAN K SADLER

 I am pleased to release a few sneak peeks from my resent shoot of my new Wedding Headdressing Collections with Los Angeles based photographer & artist Meghan K SadlerI have had my eye on her for a few years after she shot a few of my pieces in collaboration with the beautiful Carly Rae.

I was in the mood to try something different disappearing alone in my studio all season. Not once did I look at what was happening with other accessory designers in order to keep my designs as a true extension of my own style.

Also with the help of Bethany Ruck who’s artistry with hair made my pieces look perfect on our adorable model Mathilda Tolvanen.

 Keep your eyes peeled for more beautiful images as I prepare to debut my new website.

With love,

Erica

JENY YOO COLLECTIONS SHOOT WITH CAROLINE TRAN

What can I say about what a wonderful time I had at the Sunstone Winery Villa lending a helping hand with Jenny Yoo’s campaign shot by the amazing Caroline Tran who is such a pleasure to work with!

What an amazing venue. I felt like I was on vacation in France. Sunstone winery did a beautiful job recreating a little slice of heaven.

Jenny’s collection is beautiful. The construction & fit is like a dream. Every drape & fold is exactly as it should be so the sheer chiffons & tulles hang in the most flattering way possible. I am a big fan!

I also had the pleasure to meet Nina from Coco Rose Design who had just the right touch with flowers & Mar from Team Hair & Makeup.

Here are a few of Caroline Tran’s beautiful images!

ERICA ELIZABETH DESIGNS FEATURED ETSY SELLER

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!

With Love!

ERICA ELIZABETH DESIGNS ON STYLE ME PRETTY

It is a great honor to have my new Artistry of handmade Collections featured on Style me Pretty with photography by Caroline Tran….

As the dark days of winter recede and the promise of a new spring emerges, green shoots break ground and show themselves, soon to erupt into a rich floral garden. As the bright seasons of spring and summer approach, my creative energies are infused with the promise of light, joy and the glorious renewal that ushers in each new cycle of life.

WOOD NYMPH HEADPIECE

My 2015 Spring/Summer Collection is firmly focused on distinctive design created with hand detailed craftsmanship. In a world of mass production, my studio continues to grow and flourish by staying true to this handmade design sensibility, paired with a commitment to uncompromising craftsmanship. This season I am showcasing a range of styles and shapes that celebrate artistry, glamour and the romance of all things beautiful.

DESERT PRICES BOHO HEADPIECE

Embracing the design aesthetic personified by craftsmen in centuries past, my new collection harks back to the lush creations of medieval times. This season’s head ornaments are crafted with multiple layers of delicate metal florals, hand-fabricated flowers and leaves paired with softer organic materials, accessories to crown a bride in refined elegance. To celebrate a special woman on her singular day, I’ve designed highly detailed halos, tiaras, crowns, vines and flourishes to complement a selection of sublime veils.

SILK WORM VEIL

I am so fortunate and privileged to work with a talented creative team who enhance my design efforts. As captured by the talented photographer Caroline Tran, my 2015 Collection features stunning gowns by Claire Pettibone. Lindsey Burwell provided wonderful Hair and Makeup services, and our beautiful model is Anjelina Afanasyeva.

 

MUSE HAIR STICK

The exquisite artistry of medieval design, the hallmark of my 2015 Spring/Summer Collection, delivers the opulence of a bygone era to today’s bride, capturing the splendor of courtly love and timeless romance.

With love,

Erica
