Rag and Stone by Erin Hawley
Altitude Gallery proudly represents Erin Hawley from Whitefish, Montana.
Read on to learn about the artist's inspiration and artistic journey.
Rag and Stone is a Metalsmithing studio located in Northwest Montana, where Artist Erin Hawley creates one-of-a-kind jewelry and limited collections. She works out of a small outbuilding in Whitefish, MT dubbed “the bungalito" and is usually in the middle of a cup of hot coffee.
Erin explores the story that stone and silver seem to speak together. Her work is inspired by the beautiful and sometimes harsh climates of the North and her place among the "Big Sky". She enjoys large stones, simple silver design, and writing about the intention behind each of her pieces.
Most of Erin's jewelry is inspired by strong and independent women whose zest for life is contagious. Strength and bravery is a common theme and thread of her work. Her hope for you is that something made by her makes you hold your head a little higher, that it reminds you to be fierce and passionate. She hopes you find a piece that reminds you daily that you truly are a gorgeous human being!
