Erica Bianchini, Creative Director
Ten years ago, Ecksand’s creative director, Erica Bianchini, witnessed an industry saturated with patriarchal monotony, outdated style and uneducated retailers. To the fine jewelry trained eye, all styles seemed commercial and antiquated jewellers were unable to explain the basic details of their pieces, such as, where their stones came from, or how a jewel was assembled.
The creation of Ecksand was a response to this irrepressible frustration regarding traditional jewelers’ inability to account for the basic details of their pieces. She believed that clients deserved to fully understand the jewelry they decided to bring home, which she had felt as a client was not the case. By working with its clients and including them from start to finish, Ecksand offers corporate transparency like no other that answers to jewelry’s ancient problem.
