After graduating with a degree in psychology designer, Erin McCloskey felt a need to express herself creatively. McCloskey, a self taught jeweler, is always trying to learn new techniques to incorporate into her work to keep it fresh and new. Although many of her designs are inspired by nature, she also looks to architecture and vintage items for ideas. She loves creating delicate, pretty pieces that are versatile enough to wear every day. Her favorite part of creating jewelry is being able to design something that is part of a special time in someone’s life such as a birthday, anniversary or wedding. All of her pieces are designed and carefully handcrafted in her Ohio studio.
