ERICA ELIZABETH DESIGNS MAKER OF WEDDING CROWNS
I work out of my personalized home studio in Los Angeles, California. It has been a lifelong dream to make my living as an artisan and with the support of the internet I finally am!
I started studying jewelry fabrication & fashion at Otis College of Art and Design. To help pay my way through school I took a job in a local bridal shop making wedding accessories. After a few years, I opened my own business; its headquarters was the living room of my tiny duplex. I found success in wholesale. As the business expanded I began selling to hundreds of bridal salons and major department stores across the U.S.
After 25 successful years in the wholesale business, I felt that my creative side was getting lost. I wanted to reimagine my brand by creating singular designs that focused on uncompromising craftsmanship and beauty. I decided to leave the world of wholesale and go back to my roots. Now, I take great pride in knowing that everything in my online shop is handmade, beautifully packaged and shipped by me to women around the world.
