An interview with Erin Griffin Silversmith

ELF:  How long have you been crafting/creating?
Erin:  Since as long as I can remember, but I only started taking it seriously when I went to school for it eight years ago.

ELF:  Where did your brand name come from?
Erin:  I chose to use my name because it just felt the most honest.  I chose to use the word silversmith instead of jeweler because I wanted to make a distinction between the craft and the craftsmanship of my work.

ELF:  What do you like most about Carrboro?
Erin:  My family!!  They are all here and I love going into town and just bumping into them.  It keeps me out of trouble!

ELF:  What aspect of the ELF Fair are you most excited about?
Erin:  Seeing the support in our community for small business and handmade goods.  It is always my favorite show each year and it keeps getting better!

ELF:  Do you have a favorite crafting or art website or blog?  (please include the link)
Erin:  I am slightly obsessed with interior architecture, so I would say my most viewed blog is 1 Kind Design.
