Santa Barbara jewelry designer Erin Reinecke Balint’s beaded jewelry incorporates precious metals, ethnic beads and semi-precious stones from around the world. Whether it’s custom or one of a small edition, Santa Barbara jewelry designer Erin Reinecke Balint infuses each piece with the feel of a personal talisman.
As a lifelong designer, Erin’s eye for combining colors, materials and texture is well developed. She crochets each strand by hand onto Gore-Tex thread, and uses an eclectic array of materials, old and new, blending elements from all over the world to create truly unique pieces.
Many of the pendants are rare or one-of-a-kind objects and others are selected from small hand cast editions. The gold beads, pendants and hardware are of fine vermeil.
You’ll find a selection of ERB Jewelry at PORCH in Carpinteria, THE MILL VALLEY MERCANTILE in Mill Valley, MIXTA in San Miguel de Allende, YEMAYA in Sayulita, Mexico and occasional trunk shows as well as her Santa Barbara studio.
Collectors of her jewelry can shop at her online store. Erin welcomes studio visits, where customers can select from a full range of her work.
Erin also loves to breathe new life into family heirlooms. Clients often bring her a vintage pendant or an old strand of pearls with sentimental value to be reworked into an updated, personalized piece that they’ll treasure.
Santa Barbara locals may choose to pick up their items at the artist’s studio at no charge, or request personalized local delivery, which is perfect for gift-giving occasions.
Each piece is gift wrapped in an exquisite hand-made origami box.
