Elena Herrera combines her love of antique jewelry with her design skills to create one-of-a-kind pieces that blend antique/vintage components with a modern sensibility. Each piece of jewelry is individually curated and hand assembled in her Irvington, NY studio.
The collections include necklaces, bracelets, and earrings that range in style from boho casual to statement pieces. With an emphasis on quality and wearability, the jewelry can just as easily be worn with a white t-shirt or a little black dress!
Elena Herrera began jewelry design after a successful career in public affairs and many years of community involvement in the arts and education. Her first business was created in partnership with a close friend while both lived near Philadelphia. A move back to New York prompted Elena to launch her solo effort.
"I have always loved antique jewelry, especially from the Victorian era. The details get me every time - the filigree, the etching, the carving - everything so perfectly crafted. It's like the maker is giving you a little gift when you discover those touches. Even antique chains, which seem simple and straightforward, can have decorative links. The fact that each tiny link in a chain has been embellished is something I love. Those details are what inspire me give the pieces a new life. I only collect things that I love or that I think I can transfer into something great. One of my goals is to provide my customers with beautiful, one of a kind pieces that are as affordable as mass produced items."
