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 a one-of-a-kind 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.
“I crochet each strand by hand onto Gore-Tex thread, and use only the finest clasps and findings to ensure long-lasting durability. Many of my 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.” she explains.
Clients often bring Erin pendants to be reworked into an updated, personalized piece, incorporating family heirlooms with semi-precious stones.
Local stores that showcase ERB Jewelry include PORCH in Carpinteria and KAKOON in downtown Santa Barbara.
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. 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.
