  • Erica Schlueter has been producing jewelry for over 10 years. Her college experience spanned the study of various aspects of textile and fiber. Over the years she has been exploring ways to combine fiber and textile techniques into her sterling silver and 18K gold and silver bi-metal pieces. While continuing to use rivets (and no solder) and embossing fabric textures into the metal, which have been influential design elements in her work, she is now further embellishing the textured metals with fine silk using embroidery and crochet techniques  With her work, Schlueter is paying homage to the fine needlework techniques that have been practiced all over the world and, indeed, throughout history.
