Don’t Quit Your Daydreams Designer
As an artist and designer, Erica Rosenblum wants to create a community where jewelers, artists or aspiring ones can come and leave their worries at the door.
Originally from New York, Rosenblum gained her experience in fashion design and production at the Parsons School of Design and later at the Fashion Institute of Technology in jewelry and metalsmithing.
Before launching her jewelry line, Erica Klein in 2008, Rosenblum worked with top names in the fashion and jewelry industries helping them bring their ideas to life from concept to creation.
Her work has been sold in boutiques and department stores across the country, she says.
Recently, Rosenblum opened Don’t Quit Your Daydreams, a jewelry and art studio where creators, new and seasoned, can book a bench, take classes to learn how to craft fine items, or schedule an event.
“When I realized there wasn’t a space in Boca Raton or anywhere nearby for an artist to enjoy, I set my sights on a studio fully stocked with everything you would need to create a piece of fine jewelry and beyond, and where you can rent a bench by the hour,” she says. “My bench is my happy place. I want others to feel the same.”
Rosenblum encourages artists to sit down at Don’t Quit Your Daydreams and channel all their energy into creating something beautiful.
“If they have the prerequisite skills to navigate the equipment, I’d love them to rent a bench. If they aren’t as confident, that is where I come in to teach classes. While I instruct with the perspective of fine jewelry my background extends into the fashion industry as well as the fine arts. I can teach them to make just about anything from an idea to the final product. If they wish, I can even assist them in launching and marketing their own line. I also have clients who come to me to reimagine their heirloom jewelry into something current,” says Rosenblum who recently opened the business this past June.
They can also check their worries at the door, metaphorically speaking, Rosenblum says, “I want anyone who comes in to know that this is a safe place where they can freely work without judgment or stress.”
