Erica Bapst is the talented heart and soul behind the lovely olive and gold beaded bangles from our first ever Fall Staff Picks Build a Box! With great attention to detail and a passion for high quality jewelry, Erica made all of these bangle sets by hand. Here’s your chance to read on and find out a little bit more about the artist behind the scenes…
Erica specializes in custom created jewelry made with a wide variety of materials including Swarovski products, high-quality Czech glass, semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, sterling silver, leather and more. Her styles range from easy-to-wear everyday pieces, all the way to her sought after bridal and special occasion custom designs.
She decided to open a shop in her hometown because she recognized the importance of local community places for small business. Soon after opening her store, she found that Downtown Canandaigua was filled with a great number of amazing woman owned and operated businesses – businesses that all help each other grow and thrive. This is the exact path that Erica has been fortunate enough to follow. She just celebrated her eighth year of doing business, which also marks her jump into a new adventure of expanding her business to a larger retail space.She sells all of her fine hand-made jewelry pieces in a boutique in Canandaigua, NY named “Adorn Jewelry and Accessories“. It brings her great joy when women come into the shop for that little pick-me up and leave a little happier than when they came in. For Erica, that’s what jewelry is all about, giving someone a little boost of happiness or self-confidence. To her, jewelry does not need to be anything extravagant. Erica’s goal is to create high quality pieces that everyone can afford to enjoy.
