Ann Erickson is an artist based in Minneapolis. Quality handmade adornments - largely earrings and hair accessories - are the focus of her current creative pursuits, though her background is in painting, ceramics, leatherworking, and sewing. Working in primarily brass and sterling silver, Ann is interested in making versatile utilitarian pieces that complement the wearer's sense of beauty and expression - especially for those leading an active lifestyle. For this reason, you will find that even the largest statement earrings are lightweight enough for everyday wear, and are designed to minimize snagging clothing and hair.
Now a full-time metalsmith, Ann's business grew out of her desire to create functional adornments for active individuals, rarely creating pieces she couldn't have worn at her former day-jobs of running distillery production, throwing pots and loading kilns, and raising fish for an aquaponics farm.
Cheers to retaining elegance and style even in a flannel covered in clay!
