About Sandra & Erin
sandra & erin paetsch: makers
Sandra & Erin are a mom and daughter behind the Orange Avocado Jewelry design company from Edmonton, Alberta. We are a small batch jewelry company creating new collections every year. We specialize in personalized, wedding and permanent jewelry in our home studio in Edmonton.
Sandra began her jewelry line in 2004. Since she was a child she was always able to make “something from nothing” where her love of art, creation, and individuality shone through. Restless for something fresh and challenging, Sandra began to venture into the world of hand made jewelry, metalworking of precious metals … pure silver, solid gold, gold-filled metals & bronze.
Erin officially joined the company full time in the fall of 2022 after years of watching Sandra create in her studio. In the background she was always helping to make the jewelry. She would also help customers choose the perfect piece at every one of Sandra's jewelry shows.
Sandra practiced as a speech-language pathologist in a hospital setting and worked with children & adults for 14 years which gave her perspective. Now Sandra & Erin have chosen the path of creativity and experimentation with metalworking and making artful jewelry. It is what they love.
