Erin Frances Creative

Notice from Erin Frances Creative: Free standard shipping within South Africa on all our products!

Erin Frances Creative was founded in 2014 by Erin Frances. An entrepreneur since her early teens, she graduated from Ruth Prowse School of Art in 2012. In 2013, she went into jewellery-making full time and for the past two years she has been teaching jewellery-making hobby classes from her studio in Cape Town. She finds great inspiration in international and local travel, and regular visits to India contribute significantly to her design style and ethos.

Erin works with silver, copper and brass, experimenting with oxidation and textures. Hand carved wood, fabric, silk yarn, gemstones, as well as old cutlery and trinkets all feature in her work. She supports local, small scale suppliers and follows green workshop practices where possible. Various wearable products made from isiShweshwe also form part of her range and this iconic Southern African fabric is closely woven into her family heritage.

Erin cherishes all things handmade for their individuality and authenticity. Her approach is simplistic and humble, and she aims to emphasise experience over materialism through her work. She draws inspiration from various tribal cultures across the continents, weaving stories around the pieces that emerge from her hands. Erin’s work is bold, rough and full of soul; adornment for the creative individualist.
