Erik's jewelry creations display strong geometrical lines, soft flowing surfaces, and highlights of the ethereal beauty of choice gemstones. Their unique mountings generate surprising reflections of the gems and surfaces from unexpected angles. These selected designs are representative of his passion for sculptural art inspired by his lifelong experiences.
He is Graduate Gemologist certified by G.I.A. since 2003, along with over 17 years of experience in the jewelry industry. He designs using CAD/CAM software to enhance the precision to achieve world-class workmanship. All of the designs are manufactured in-house with superb care and the highest level of quality by Erik himself and his fellow master jewelers.
His creative ideas stem from the creative images that emerge from his studies of music, fine art and architectural expression derived from traveling around the world. His strong affinity for geometry, elegance, and simplicity is a significant motif in all of his jewelry concepts.
