About ErikawithaKDesigns

Sales 221
On Etsy since 2012

It's Erika with a K....

ARTFUL FLORALS:
As for my faux flower creations, I began my floral experience by working for my mother and her wedding decorating company, "I Do..." Balloons, Weddings, and Events out of Hazen, ND. I starting by helping her create real floral centerpieces and realized not only was I good at it, but I loved it too! From there I decided to try working with artificial flowers and fell in love with their permanence and the challenge of making them look real.

UNIQUE ACCESSORIES:

My entire life I knew I wanted to make art. I started with drawing (mostly copying anime character drawings) and later dabbled in collage and altered books. In college I was introduced to jewelry, including bead weaving and embroidery as well as Swarovski crystals, and have been hooked ever since. I use that love to create unique bridal accessories and jewelry.

SPARKLING COSTUMES:

Because of my love for crystals, my sister asked me to create a custom design on my niece's skating costume. 2500 crystals and 30 hours later I had a creation I was truly proud of and a new-found passion for "bedazzling" dance and figure skating costumes. This passion, further fueled by my history as a dancer, has grown into the third leg of Erika with a K Designs.

ERIKA WITH A K DESIGNS:

As for my name, I settled on Erika with a K Designs because in addition to always wanting to be an artist, my name has always been spelled wrong! This name reminds me of who I am and to stay true to that and my designs. To me this means connecting to my customers through my art. This is why I specialize in custom work. This allows me to work directly with customers to create something they truly love.
