Announcement    Your search for a beautiful, handmade anniversary gift is over. I make modern, architectural bronze, steel, iron jewelry and belt buckles and am thankful to be part of your celebration. I realize you may be in a rush to get your present. Please check shipping policies and options and choose what is best for you. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions so we can get you exactly what you want.

Traditional Wedding Anniversary Gifts materials available in my shop:
6th Wedding Anniversary- Iron, Amethyst
8th Wedding Anniversary - Bronze, Tourmaline, Tanzanite
11th Wedding Anniversary - Stainless steel, Steel, Turquoise
** in modern metallurgy the terms "iron" and "steel" are interchangeable, so any of the 6th anniversary "iron" gifts are made from mild steel and can therefore work as 11th anniversary gifts, however the stainless steel is more appropriate for 11th than 6th.

Birthstone Gifts Available in my shop:
February - Amethyst
April - Diamond
October - Tourmaline
December - Tanzanite

I have been metalsmithing for 20 years. I intend each piece to last a lifetime. I make the jewelry, buckles and belts here in my Seattle studio and am always coming up with new designs, so be sure to check in regularly!

For my entire line of work please head to steeltoestudios.com

Thank you for your support.

About steeltoestudios

Sales 3,938
On Etsy since 2008

Hammer, fire and anvil are my main tools in creating heritage buckles, belts and jewelry.

My name is Erica and I have been blacksmithing for 20 years. I apprenticed for about six years with a variety of talented master smiths, mostly learning the craft through traditional smithing techniques, making gates, railings and lighting. I opened Steel Toe Studios in 2003 in the grimy Georgetown neighborhood in Seattle, and have been making belt buckles and belts ever since. Since having a child and massively reducing the craft shows I participated in, I developed a jewelry line based on the look of my buckles, using the same techniques but in a micro scale. I sell my work online, at a few craft shows a year and at the Pike Place Market in Seattle. I also occasionally teach workshops at schools like Penland School of Craft in North Carolina and Haystack in Maine, and am teaching workshops out of my own private studio.
I find profound satisfaction in making work by hand, slowly and carefully, with the intention that they become pieces that are handed down to future generations.
