People who know me live and in person tell me they often think of me in terms of my jewelry – big, chunky, interesting, often made of glass. Yes, glass. And when they ask where I got it, I find myself saying, more often than not, “It’s Erica Rosenfeld’s.”
is not a friend whose jewelry I swipe, but an incredible Brooklyn
artist who does fabulous things with glass techniques and beading. I’ve
seen her inspired work go from a couple of local boutiques, to museum
shops, to Barney’s. (Hello!) And not surprisingly at all; her work is very
wearable and well-priced for original art.
While she’s constantly
reinventing she remains true to a vision, which is rare for all but the
best jewelry artists.
I am adoring a lot of her new work, which seems to be inspired by vintage photos and images of motherhood. I really like the glass and sterling earrings featuring mid-century photos of moms and babies. And I’m in love with the one-of-a-kind photo necklace (shown above) in the same line, although I’d have to seriously save up for it. Or wait…my birthday is coming up. -Liz
