Jewelry designer Erica Zap has been surrounded by art and craft all of her life. Her parents owned an international handcraft shop that sold artwork collected from their extensive travels around the world. This early exposure to exotic art and culture has greatly influenced her designs.
Each of Zap's designs uses brass shapes and forms that are electroplated in a variety of metals and used in combination with various carved and cast toggle or magnetic clasps.
Erica Zap graduated from S.U.N.Y. New Paltz with a BFA in gold and silversmithing.
