ErinMaura Jewelry

These collections are the realization of a long-time dream: to create beautiful and unique jewelry for others to enjoy. To founder Erin Maura, her work is more than just jewelry - it is art, the expression of herself and the stories told by the materials that compose her pieces.

Erin's love of natural materials - and particularly stones - is one she comes by honestly, as it flows down through the generations in her family. From a young age she recalls the pleasure found in rummaging through her Mom and Grandpa's rock collections, exploring the beautiful colors and textures of the various stones and fossils, and imagining the histories of the earth and its peoples that each stone brought with it. These days, her favorite mementos of travel and time spent with friends and family are unique stones and shells she's collected or purchased…

Erin's love of natural materials - and particularly stones - is one she comes by honestly, as it flows down through the generations in her family. From a young age she recalls the pleasure found in rummaging through her Mom and Grandpa's rock collections, exploring the beautiful colors and textures of the various stones and fossils, and imagining the histories of the earth and its peoples that each stone brought with it. These days, her favorite mementos of travel and time spent with friends and family are unique stones and shells she's collected or purchased in her journeys over the years.

After working casually with glass beads for many years, Erin came to the realization that her love of stones could be translated into a creative venture as well - and thus began her jewelry making in earnest. In the mid-2000s, Erin attended an interior design program at the Art Institute of California - Orange County, where her studies greatly influenced the maturity of her jewelry work in both composition and style. The work presented here, both past and present, is the culmination of these many years of work and study, and Erin hopes you will enjoy wearing her art as much as she loves creating it!
