Erin Sachse, founder of jewelry line Eriness, started designing intricate necklaces and wearable art for herself and friends in high school. “It really began as a hobby,” says Sachse, currently a Senior at Boston University. “Growing up I always loved creating things, and working with my hands. Around the time I graduated high school I began making jewelry for myself. I started with wire wrapping, and from that I created my classic design, the Daisy chain. It’s a timeless piece that is worn like a hand chain.”

Soon after creating her first piece, though, Sachse’s design caught the attention of a jewelry buyer at Fred Segal, and within months her designs were in stores across the country including Fred Segal and online at Anthropologie. “At that point I only had one design, and I began expanding the Daisy chain collection experimenting with different materials and gem stone combinations,” says the Los Angeles native. “The word spread about Eriness, and more people and boutiques began inquiring about the pieces I wore. I never expected this to ever turn into a full-fledged business.”

Now, the line—carried at select stores in California, New York, Michigan, and Texas—has expanded to include single, and multi-strand necklaces, bracelets, and body chains made with precious and semi-precious stones from diamonds and rubies, to white onyx and labradorites. Sachse is also working on a new collection of earrings.

“The best part, beyond watching someone fall in love with one of my pieces, [or bringing up my work in conversation], is that I actually love making jewelry,” she adds. “I would make it regardless if anyone wanted to buy it, and the fact that my passion makes other people happy, is an incredible added bonus.”
