Erica Molinari got into the jewelry design business after looking for something unique and beautiful, and deciding that she could create something herself. Never one to do anything half way, she plunged in and in relatively short order, not only learned the fundamentals of style and design but did is so well that she became the much sought after designer she is today. She is known for her delicate gold and silver designs of fine craftsmanship and exquisite detailing that offer accessible jewels for fashion conscious clientele. Very popular are her oxidized silver earrings, rings and bangles that are embellished with 18 kt gold and diamonds. Other big sellers include diamond-studded pearls, blackened silver bangles and twiggy hoops. And no profile of Erica is complete without mention of her 18 year career with The U.S. National Luge team and as a competitor in the Winter Olympic Games in Calgary, Canada in 1988 and Albertville, France in 1992.
