Erica Stanley creates recycled gold wedding rings for clients, transforming their shared story into continuous circles: rings. Her respect for the earth influences her efforts to be as eco-conscious as possible. Her one-of-a-kind artwork is constructed mainly from silver, gold, re-purposed gold, and mixed media, including: feathers, stones, buttons and found objects. Her work deals with ideas around natural beauty and place, physicality and energetic protection.
