The creative force behind Rings & Things is South African based designer and manufacturer Erika Fourie.
After finishing a certificate course in Art, Erika decided to further her studies and went on to complete her B-Tech degree in Jewellery Design and Manufacture from the Department of Fine and Applied Arts at the Tshwane University of Technology.
After the completion of her studies, she spent a few months broadening her horizons in search of inspiration in one of the fashion capitals of the world – New York City.
Back in South Africa she started working as a part time fine jewellery lecturer at a private jewellery school. Still fascinated and inspired by the world of fashion, she soon accepted a position as a trend forecaster and fashion accessory buyer for a company who supply a chain of local fashion stores.
With the experience she has gained from working in both the fashion and fine jewellery industries and dedication to both creativity and fashion, Erika decided to combine her love for fashion and fine jewellery alike to build a brand based on all things pretty, fun and special.
“…This is not just my job, it’s my passion. I can spend hours in my home studio where I design, create, rework, repair, source and buy jewellery. I find my inspiration absolutely everywhere, blogs, magazines, my friends, architecture, movies or even from some stranger walking down the street. I hope that you will love wearing my jewellery just as much as I love designing, manufacturing and sourcing them ♥ Love Erika…”
