Announcement   Hello everyone,
My name is Erin Marie Pfeiffer, every piece of jewelry in this shop is designed and handmade by me. I take pride in the craftsmanship of the jewelry I create, and make each piece to last generations.

Don't forget to visit my blog by going to blog.emp-jewelry.com I talk about the pieces I am making and finished pieces, along with tips for jewelry makers.

I am also trying to raise money to get my casting operation up and running. check out my go fund me at https://www.gofundme.com/help-me-start-casting-jewelry It would take 3k to purchase the remaining equipment to cast anything I can make in wax or clay. In my updates there is a picture of a ferret charm I made in wax and could cast if I had the equipment to do so.

If you like what you see check out my other campaign to help me start casting, I have bought a lot of the tools I need, I just need a few more tools that would allow me to do much more than just cast. www.gofundme.com/help-me-start-casting-jewelry

I will continue adding new and unique items periodically so please return regularly to see my latest creations.

I always welcome custom orders, If I can find the materials, and I can do the job, I can give you a quote.

All diamonds used in jewelry sold in this shop are Conflict free and are purchased from dealers that adhere to the Kimberley Process certification.

The U.S. government, through the Gold and Silver Stamping Act of 1906, requires that all jewelry and related items marked karat gold or sterling silver be accompanied by the manufacturer's trademark.

At this time I do not have a trademark so none of my jewelry is stamped with karat. However all jewelry is what it is described as. I am working on getting a trademark stamp at which time all jewelry sold in my shop will have sterling or karat stamped on it, along with my trademark.

About

Beginnings

My name is Erin Marie Pfeiffer,
I have always been interested in art. As a teenager I mostly worked in clay sculpture and soap stone carving. I also did some painting, but 3D art was my first love. When I was 19 I decided I would like to try making jewelry so I went to the local bead shop and bought some supplies. I soon grew out of the odds and ends I could buy locally, so I started looking online. I was making medicine pouches and beaded panel necklaces.

In 2004 I was looking at my own collection of jewelry and it was all sterling silver. I thought "I could make that" so I started looking online at information about silver jewelry making. Then I went to the local library and took out a couple of books on gold and silver smith techniques--they showed me the basics; what tools to use, how to braise (solder), and how you should anneal the wire before you make something with it. I realized the seemingly limitless potential, and I was hooked.

I started looking online for silver suppliers, I only found one that I didn't need a business account to order from. Three years later after many successful craft shows I decided to start a business. I called it Erin Marie Pfeiffer Jewelry & Design, EMP Jewelry & Design for short.


In the years since, I've done a lot of local craft shows, and farmers markets. In march of 2009 someone told me about Etsy.com and I started a shop. I am still constantly learning new things about making jewelry, I search the internet, I subscribe to magazines, and I listen to other jeweler's tricks and ideas. If you are passionate about something you want to know everything you can about it.

My goals are to eventually acquire the equipment to cast precious metals and all the other things needed such as wax, and mold making supplies. Because if I could cast, my designs would only be limited by my imagination and sculpting skills!

Thank you for visiting EMP Jewelry,
