In a small adobe home where the rugged San Juan Mountains of Colorado meet the open desert of Georgia O’Keefe’s New Mexico, a St. Louis ex-pat started bending and hammering her first pieces of wearable art over 9 years ago. Erin Weaver is an artist, an archaeologist and a creative force, who embraced the open lands of the West, while never giving up her urban sophistication. Studio451Jewelry is the physical representation of that spirited independence and self-aware style. Inspired by natural elements and by finding simplicity in complex design, Studio451Jewelry is designed for the woman who owns her creativity and individuality. Whether her boots are caked with mud or scuffed by concrete, Studio451 pieces are the ideal complements for the woman who wants her jewelry to reflect the many dimensions of what makes her unique.
From the Designer…
“I thrive energetically by creating and I’m constantly finding inspiration. Since I make my jewelry by hand, each piece is one-of-a-kind, just like the woman who will wear it. Jewelry is a very personal expression of what we find beautiful, truthful and sometimes, evocative. Since I strive to design with elegance and simplicity, my jewelry exists to enhance, not dominate, my customers’ unique expressiveness. To this end, I embrace change and am always seeking to create opportunity for new experiences. This is reflected in life, my personal style, and my jewelry as all continue to evolve.” -Erin Weaver
