Hello there! Thanks for stopping by, I'm glad you're here!
My name is Erica Wilson, but my friends call me Ricky.
My pronouns are she/her/hers.
I am the designer, maker and owner of BANGIN jewelry.
I live in beautiful Gainesville Florida with my wonderful husband Dean and our adorable 3 year old pup Lily.
I have a passion for jewelry making and have been drawn to it since I was a little girl. My earliest memory of jewelry design is shaping silly putty into rings and bracelets and convincing my mom to wear them until they drooped off lol! These days my jewelry is heavily inspired by nature. I love spending time outside collecting bones, flowers and even bullet casings to incorporate into my designs. I consider my work an extension of myself and strive to offer a quality product that will stand the test of time while still being affordable and accessible to everyone. I make it a point to connect with my pieces while I'm creating them and infuse each one with love, good intentions, and affirmations. There is something so fulfilling for me when I get to make things that bring others happiness. I love watching peoples faces light up when they find that perfect match, and knowing that one of my creations has found it's forever home fills me with joy and gratitude. If you are new here, welcome, I can't wait to get to know you!
If you've been with me for a while, thank you, I couldn't do this without you and I wouldn't want to! <3 Ricky
