About Erica Corte Atelier
Erica Corte Atelier is a jewelry collection inspired by the expression of spirituality. The simplistic designs evoke the beauty of transcendence found in everything around us. Created by Erica Corte, the collection celebrates her passion for jewelry and gemstones giving the spiritual substance for the wearer to feel at one with the pieces benefiting from the healing stones inspired by ancient beliefs. Each piece in the collection is handmade with the use of gemstones and seeds sourced from all over the world. Erica and a small group of jewelers in New York City create each piece as if it were one of a kind.
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, based in New York City, Erica Corte created and launched her first Jewelry line in 2010. Inspired by her passion for jewelry and childhood memories of watching her father create handcrafted accessories for dressing horses lead her to creating her first contemporary jewelry line, Erica Corte Atelier. Her jewelry then evolved to the expression of spirituality which lead her to creating a more casual line. Distinctly original in design and meaning, each handcrafted piece presents a clean simplicity and balance born from a playful use of bold and diverse textures. Erica has worked for over 15 years as an Ayurvedic therapist with one of the pioneers of the Ayurvedic skincare and beauty field, Dr. Pratima Raichur. She not only incorporates Ayurveda in her lifestyle but also in her work. In addition, most of her collections use materials known to have healing properties such as sacred seeds, metals, and gemstones to follow the Ayurvedic principles. Erica creates her jewelry with spiritual substance for the wearer to feel at one with the pieces benefiting from the healing stones inspired by ancient beliefs. Her passion for jewelry and gemstones has allowed her to create a line in which she incorporates a strong meaning within every piece she creates, making it personal and unique to the wearer. A meaning that she hopes the wearer will feel a timeless connection with.
