At Venue this month we are featuring jewelry artist Erika Laureano. With her current Patina Resin Collection, her focus is on texture, color and found objects captured with resin. Within the line there is an array of necklaces, earrings, statement cuffs and rings.
Copper, brass, sterling and gold are embossed for texture then married with color, which is created through various patina recipes that Erika has experimented with over the years. Finally, it's all captured with clear resin and sometimes you might find tiny objects suspended in the process (glass balls, bronze cast coral, plastic tiny bubble balls.). The organic colors that surface through the patina process, combined with Erika's bold cutting edge designs allow for a unique one-of-a-kind style of jewelry.
