Special Delivery: Erica Weiner

Get it while you can! The porcupine quill earrings and elephant hair rings are just flying out the door!!

A little about more about the brand:

Erica started designing and making jewelry out of her LES apartment in 2005. Before that, she honed her design and production skills as a theatrical costumer and samplemaker in the fashion industry. Over the years and throughout her travels, she gathered a collection of curiosities and used them to develop a line of jewelry with an emphasis on craftsmanship and affordability. The collection grew exponentially, as did her fan base. There seemed to be a never-ending demand for locally made, affordable vintage-inspired jewelry, designed with a sense of humor. Erica Weiner Jewelry can now be found in shops around the world.
In 2007, Erica and co-founder Lindsay Salmon moved the studio into a sun-filled workspace on Chrystie Street. Together they travel around the country, searching out interesting materials to transform into new jewelry. A team of trusted friends carry out almost every aspect of the business in-house. They believe in responsible employment (that means health insurance for everyone working here).
Their environmental policy: Packing materials are reused and mailers are 90% post-consumer paper and 100% recyclable. About half of their jewelry materials are vintage, dead stock and re-purposed. They offset 300% of our carbon output through www.carbonfund.org. Most importantly, all of their jewelry is handmade in NYC; it always has been and always will be.

5% of all after-tax profits from Erica Weiner Jewelry are donated to charities.
