Beautiful and better than I expected. Highly recommend this for self or gift. It was a pleasure working with the artist. She was so careful to be exact and precise with what I wanted. Thank you!

Good locket. Just as I expected. The locket is really light. Shipping was pretty slow as she states but that was to be expected

About

Wear your story.

Hello, and welcome to Astrid and Rose!

I'm Erica, a designer-maker based in Berkshire, England. I have always loved drawing and making things that are tiny, delicate, and exquisite. My creative journey in jewellery began with the idea of creating little keepsakes for people, a personal and meaningful story, to wear close to the heart. Inspired by stories and poetry, and the romantic jewellery from the Victorian era, I began to add words, poems and old book illustrations to lockets. After a few friends asked me to make personalised pieces for weddings and birthday gifts, I decided to pursue jewellery making and silversmithing more seriously, and began to learn some of the wonderful creative processes in this field.

One of the processes I fell in love with instantly is the lost wax casting technique, an art form that dates back to ancient times, where a piece is hand carved in jeweller's wax, and then cast in metal. I make tiny charms using this method, to symbolise love, friendship, strength and individuality.

Some of the stories behind the jewellery I have made have been incredibly moving. From the celebration of marriage and new life, to loss and remembrance, each and every one is a little treasure that I take pride and care in making. I feel strongly about sourcing materials ethically from small manufacturers as much as possible. I have worked hard in honing my techniques to make the quality of my products excellent, yet affordable.

I work from my home studio in the English countryside, where I live with my husband Jay and Pedro, our pooch.
