Crafted with precision, Erica Bello merges architectural forms and traditional jewellery silhouettes to create modern heirlooms.
Influenced by icons of value and strength, Erica’s work communicates an interest in the reinterpretation of powerful imagery. Forms rise from reoccurring motifs in culture and recede into minimal silhouetted structures. Through the use of traditional and contemporary metalsmithing techniques graphic imagery is translated into wearable objects. The nature of each piece is amplified through the use of monochromatic industrial finishes.
Erica is based in Baltimore.
