Tastemaker: Erin McDermott
For those who don’t know Erin McDermott White, I am so excited to introduce you to her amazing jewelry line. I am so happy that she is our latest tastemaker as Erin has such a love for life and you can certainly see it in her designs. Her jewelry is fun, easy to accessorize and perfect for day to night outfits.
I had the pleasure of purchasing some of Erin’s jewelry years ago at a trunk show in Richmond and still till this day grab for those earrings. And if you are a bride, she can create the most amazing bridal + bridesmaids jewelry!!
WHEN DID YOU BEGIN YOUR JEWELRY BUSINESS? HOW DID YOU TAKE THE LEAP?
I began about 12 years ago! I was always making jewelry for friends and then started selling at the Charlottesville Farmers Market and really started to realize how much I loved it! It was a great way to continue created every week and to chat with people about jewelry. It truly evolved little by little.
WHO/WHAT HAS HAD THE BIGGEST IMPACT ON YOUR COMPANY?
I would say that Instagram has had the biggest impact.

Oh man! I never have balance, but I’m ok with that…I’m not really striving for balance. Some days I spend more time with my family, other days I spend more time at work. I kind of just take it day by day and try to position myself in the place or with the people that need me most at that time. I try to get up by 5am and those two hours are crucial. During those hours, I’m able to get my thoughts together for the day and knock out a few “to-dos” so I’m not playing catch-up the remainder of the day.
