Erika Jorjorian, Metalsmithing and Jewelry

Erika Jorjorian

Erika Jorjorian began her foray into jewelry and metalsmithing at the University of the Arts, in Philadelphia PA, earning a BFA from the crafts department in 2004. Her work draws inspiration from growing up in her dad's industrial metal recycling shop, city landscapes, old-school hip-hop culture, and the Art Deco era. Erika’s work can be found at a number of fine craft shows such as the Berkshire Arts Festival, Lenox, Ma, the Holiday Festival of Crafts, Worcester, MA, the Art Star Craft Bazaar, Philadelphia, PA and as an emerging artist at the Art Providence Holiday Show. She most recently completed a winter residency at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina. Erika is a recipient of the Friends of Metal-Werx scholarship and a work-study scholarship at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and holds a certificate in wax carving and design methods for jewelry production from the Gemological Institute of America. Erika also teaches beginner to advanced level courses at the Worcester Center for Crafts. Website-
