Erica Corte Atelier: Change the context of simple commonplace hardware, giving it a new aesthetic feel.
Erica Corte’s philosophy is influenced by modern design based on the use of the raw and recycled materials. She changes the context of simple commonplace hardware, giving it a new aesthetic feel. She transforms ordinary recycled industrial materials into objects of sustainable beauty. She uses an experimental approach, intuitively joining ready made industrial components such as nuts, clips, zippers and bolts, with recycled silk cords and fine silver mesh to create jewelry which possesses the dual qualities of raw strength paired with delicate intricacy. Erica’s creations go beyond design they have underlying elements of sustainability and profound balance. The Atelier is located in New York City. http://ericacorteatelier.com
