Erin from Heartsabustin
Erin from Heartsabustin says she began in 2008 when her mom and she opened a shop on Etsy. In 2010 Erin took over Heartsabustin and began working with precious metal clay. She says, "The medium is so flexible and incredibly fun to play with. I was able to begin setting stones, and I fell in love with the infinite possibilities of silver and gemstones."
In 2013, Erin transitioned into more traditional metalsmithing skills in addition to precious metal clay. She says, "I have greatly enjoyed the process of watching myself grow as a metal artist. I still have so much to learn that I will always be learning, and I can not wait. I love this adventure that I am on."
