Los Angeles based jewelry designer, Briana Erin, was born with an artist's mind. Growing up with her father, a master sculptor, and her mother, a graphic designer, she was surrounded by an abundance of creativity, which influenced her aesthetic from the start. Continuing her love of the arts, she attended the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design to further refine her design skills.
With her jewelry company, Tat2 Designs, Briana leans toward antique finishes and design elements that are distinct and personal. Coins, a signature accent that can be seen throughout the Tat2 collection, are collected from her travels around the world, and lend an air of exceptional charm to the designs.
Briana creates treasures that are wearable pieces of history, and features coins of powerful women, empowering women today.
Rather than interpreting the artist's palette in terms of color, Briana prefers to interpret in terms of gradients and finishes, and she incorporates an array of mixed metals such as pewter, brass, 24K gold plate, gunmetal, and sterling silver plate, as well as Swarovski crystals, cubic zirconia, and custom cut, semi-precious stones.
"I keep trends in mind, but I believe jewelry memorializes moments, so the style should last a lifetime, not a season."
