Handmade jewelry designs for today's chic woman, inspired by the grace, class, and fasion of our grandmothers
In 2009, I began creating handmade jewelry fusing a few of my favorite activities; hunting for incredible vintage 'finds', and creating something new from something old . The inspiration for each of my designs comes from the uniqueness of the vintage jewelry I collect. As I create, I love the feeling of passing along a touch of genuine vintage glam and retro fun to each of my customers.
In 2014, the shop, formerly Erica Leilani Designs, became Ethel and June. Inspired by the grace and poise of my two maternal great grandmothers, Myrna June Rector and Ethel Williams. It was growing up in a small town in Eastern Washington, surrounded by the deep-rooted love of a big family with fierce female role models, that nurtured my sense of creativity and love for things of old. Thanks to my ever-talented, and generally fantastic mother, I was introduced to that wonderful thing, "the hunt", in which one scours countless thrift, consignment, and antique shops looking for some diamond-in-the-rough upon which to rub a little love and turn into something fabulous. I still love "the hunt", looking for those perfect vintage pieces to use in creating a new, one-of-a-kind new jewelry designs.
Each of my items are handmade by me in my home studio, currently in Monterey, CA. (As a military spouse, this home studio moves frequently). I cultivate my studio to be a place fostering creativity. The walls are adorned with DIY decor projects and pictures of my one-year-old daughter, Cora. Usually working to the sounds of a female country artist or some indie pop, I sit down with a cup of hot English tea, my tools, a few strands of pearls, and a tray of collected vintage jewelry to create my next design.
Because I want the vintage pieces that I use to be incorporated into high-quality, well made designs that will last, I always use the highest quality materials in my designs; 14k gold filled and sterling silver findings; genuine freshwater pearls; and natural gemstones. Those with metal allergies should find my designs easy and comfortable to wear.
I hope when wearing my designs, my customers fleetingly indulge in feeling a bit like Grace Kelly being whisked around a ballroom by Fred Astaire or perhaps empowered to summon a bit of the female bad-assery of Mad Men's Joan. More than anything, I hope each time you put in an earring or drape a necklace around your collar bone that you feel happy to be wearing a tiny bit a of history.

I love designing items using unique vintage pieces paired with pearls and gemstones. While creating my designs, I often ponder those whom my vintage materials have previously adorned. Read more about me and my design process on my About Page.
