St Erasmus is the distinctive luxury jewellery label from South African accessories designer Pieter Erasmus. A jewellery brand created for women who prefer a timeless piece imbued with elegance, romance and eternal glamour.
Inspired by Africa landscape and the African tribes people to the retro modernism of Fritz Lan’s Metropolis, St Erasmus jewellery combines traditional arts and crafts techniques with contemporary forms and materials and the result is an exquisite jewellery collection, totally unique in design.
St Erasmus jewellery has an instantly recognisable three-dimensional statement style with a sophisticated feminine edge. Using traditional artisan production techniques and signature Zari thread crochet (a fine metallic wire thread usually woven into Indian clothing), Swarovski crystal and beading to construct intricately layered necklaces, cocktail rings, cuffs, brooches and earrings, St Erasmus jewellery is sumptuous in texture.
Pieter has designed and created jewellery for distinguished design houses including Givenchy, Matthew Williamson, Roberto Cavalli and Alexander McQueen.
"My inspiration comes from remembered textures of the African landscape, colours and patterns used by its people. A bold, spontaneous celebration of the life under the wide, blue never-ending,
My collections offer jewellery to women who prefer a timeless piece imbued with elegance, romance and eternal glamour.. Pieter Erasmus
