About

I make unique creations for unique people. When a piece of jewelry speaks to you, it is telling you to wear your inner beauty.

Hello, and welcome! I'm Eryn, the designer and creator behind Earrings by Eryn. I hope you enjoy browsing the jewelry in my shop. My jewelry speaks to those who appreciate the handmade process, since the time and care that I put into my work produces pieces as beautiful, original, and full of character as the people who will wear and treasure them.

I have made everything with an intense attention to detail. For each piece, I have come up with the original design, hand-chosen the gemstones, fabricated the metal components out of sterling silver or 14k gold fill, and combined them into a unique and exquisite piece of wearable art.

When you place an order, it is beautifully packaged in a delicate organza gift bag. When you choose gift wrapping at checkout, I will place each of your pieces into a seafoam green jewelry box, an organza drawstring bag, and finally brown paper with a beautiful damask pattern. Domestic shipping is free, and I always do my very best to ensure that you will receive a piece of jewelry that you or a loved one will treasure for many years to come. If anything could be made more perfect, just let me know!

About the process:

My workbench is my happy place. After I've dropped my kids off at school each morning, I return to my brightly lit window nook where I can easily pass hours and hours as if they were minutes. I take as long as necessary with each and every piece to make it feel perfectly completed.

I am primarily self-taught, and am constantly honing and experimenting with new wire-wrapping, hammering, silverworking, and stone-setting techniques. I argentium silver (which resists tarnish), sterling silver, fine silver, and fine silver clay. I finish my pieces in a tumbler to get them perfectly shiny, and often oxidize and then hand-polish to bring out contrasting textures and designs.

I am currently adding pieces to all of my collections. The pieces in each collection are unified both stylistically and conceptually. They take their inspiration from Greek goddesses, the Zen esthetic, modernized Art Deco and Nouveau motifs, and from the beautiful gemstones themselves. All of the collections embody a balance of feminine strength and delicacy, and all pay homage to the incredible beauty found in nature.

I love unusual gemstones. I especially love stones with beautiful patterns, such as different varieties of jasper, turquoise, and variscite, or stones with inclusions, such as rutilated quartz or lodolite, or with a changing play of light such as labradorite, moonstone, and opal. I spend significant time sourcing and acquiring premium stones, so much of my jewelry is conceptualized in order to best display the unique gemstones I find.

Although my designs usually start as an idea for a pair of earrings, a pendant, or a ring, I would always be happy to create a unified set or a bracelet upon request. I am also open to recreating an existing (or sold out) piece using different gemstones. I truly love doing custom work -- there is nothing more satisfying than seeing the enjoyment a custom piece brings to its new owner!

    There has never been a time in my life when I have not been creating. Mostly artistic, sometimes practical, always original. With silversmithing, I feel very lucky to have finally found my ideal media. Each piece I finish is intensely satisfying.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I would love to start talking with you about a custom idea you may have. Once we agree on an idea and a price, I will create a listing reserved for you. After you have purchased the reserved custom listing, I will execute the idea and send you photographs. When you are satisfied with the result, I will ship your one-of-a kind piece.

I would also be willing to attempt to create a style of your own design, or to set a stone (mine or yours) of your choosing. Due to the nature of handcrafting, the end result will be a beautiful combination of your vision and my execution.

Please note that custom orders take extra time. This varies depending on the number of other custom requests and made-to-order pieces I am currently working on.

Sizing details

If you have any questions about the size of an item or stone, please message me. I sometimes approximate sizes (especially when I am publishing listings at times when I don't have the item with me) so I would always be happy to do a precise caliper measurement upon request.

Additionally, if you are interested in a necklace style but would prefer a different chain length, or a ring in a different size, I would be happy to work with you to customize your order.

Care instructions

I use only the highest-quality sterling silver and gold filled metals. I take care to build wearability, durability, and ease of use into every design. That said, silver does tarnish and wire does bend under pressure.

If your silver looks darker or less shiny than you'd like, I recommend using a treated silver polishing cloth rather than a dip. This will achieve the shiniest result without jeopardizing the gemstones.

If the wire components of your piece become bent, you can use gentle finger pressure to try to repair the bend. If the wire has become kinked, flat-nosed pliers work well. If the damage is beyond your level of comfort to repair, I would be happy to fix your item for you.

Wholesale availability

My simple drop gemstone line is available for wholesale arrangements at 60% of my Etsy prices, with a minimum order of 15 pairs. Please contact me for more details.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each order is carefully and beautifully packaged. The jewelry is secured on a card, tied into a delicate patterned organza bag, and finally placed into a paper bag with a printed design. I ship this inside a bubble-padded envelope.

If you would prefer a box, please let me know at the time you place the order by selecting the gift-wrapped option.

Are my gemstones real?

Absolutely! I make every effort to buy from reputable sellers who fully disclose any treatments done to the stones. I prefer to buy real, untreated gemstones of the highest quality that I can afford.

Some types of gemstones are treated as an industry standard to improve the color. This includes all chalcedony and topaz and most citrine. The heat and/or irradiation treatment is considered permanent for these stones, and it is practically impossible to find any chalcedony, topaz, or citrine without treatment.

I do make an effort to find un-dyed ruby, sapphire, and lapis lazuli, though this means the color will be less saturated and more irregular than the dyed (or the very high-end) versions.

Does your jewelry tarnish?

14k gold fill never tarnishes. Most sterling silver, however, eventually does. Occasionally I use an anti-tarnish process on some of my sterling silver pieces. This is a thin, clear coating that prevents oxidizing agents from reaching the silver. As an added benefit, this coating is hypoallergenic. If you know someone allergic to metals, this is a wonderful solution!

The coating lasts for years. If your coated silver begins to tarnish, just send the piece back to me and I will reapply. To extend the life of the coating, please avoid using any solvents or abrasives on your jewelry.

I also use argentium silver, which resists tarnish, in much of my jewelry.

Please inquire about the coating status or material of any particular piece.

What is 14k gold fill?

Gold fill is a high-quality and yet affordable alternative to solid gold. Gold fill is made by permanently bonding 14k gold to the outside of another metal, usually brass or an alloy, using heat and pressure. It can't discolor, chip, or flake off like other alternatives to solid gold, and it retains its value well. It is more expensive than solid sterling silver and contains much more gold than gold plate (vermeil), at about 5% pure gold.

Can you personalize my piece?

Some pieces have room to add personalized elements such as stamped initials on the back. Please inquire!
