Calling all fashion fanatics! It’s Fanaticism Week here on the station, and I’ve got an obsession-worthy guest for you today. Erica Weiner is *the* indie design world darling for vintage jewelry, and her eponymous line is full of quirky re-interpreted deadstock from the 60’s and 70’s, as well as one-of-a-kind antique pieces. Whether you’re in the market for a Deco diamond engagement ring or some awesome wood stud earrings, Erica’s got you covered with pieces that will get you compliments left and right (trust me, I have one of her bracelets!) And hey! The holidays just happen to be coming up, so it wouldn’t hurt to keep an eagle eye out for an EWJ stocking stuffer or two… On today’s show, Erica will talk about the path that took her from Broadway costume design to Brooklyn vintage retail, some of the challenges that face today’s jewelry designers who are concerned with issues of sustainability, her fanatic passion for treasure hunting, and more.

Plus, a playlist full of your next music obsessions: brand new tracks from Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings, Grizzly Bear, Diane Coffee, The Black Hollies, and more. So if you’re crazy about great design, tune in and join me for another Sew & Tell on BTR!
