ERSTWILDER CARE BEARS COLLECTION Welcome to my web site
Erstwilder is a Melbourne-based company designing and producing collectible, limited edition jewellery. Each piece is made up of layered resin, has the Erstwilder signature stamped on the reverse and are finished by hand. They are made in limited editions and have become extremely collectable worldwide.
The brand was born in 2011 and the original designer was Louisa Camille. They now have a small team of local designers who are all passionate about the brand and their designs reflect their own individual personalities.
The designers draw their inspiration from all things vintage, rockabilly, pinup, retro and art deco and their designs provide the perfect antidote to those drab, ordinary days.
The more popular characters are sometimes re-released in different colours. All the pieces come in their Erstwilder round boxes, with an individual narrative including a unique name and also with teapot tags attached.
To quote Erstwilder 'We believe that a person's jewellery speaks volumes of their character and that life is far more fun when it's taken less seriously'.

"Kathy has a really good selection of items and carries the latest designs from ErstWilder. There is also a great choice of sale items as well and some excellent bargains to be snapped up which I have taken advantage of. The website is well-presented and easy to find your way around which I appreciate. In terms of service, I think this is excellent. Kathy has always communicated that she has received an order and set expectations on when it will be posted. The postage has always been very prompt and my items have arrived very quickly and securely. The packaging is always very secure and with enough materials to make sure the pieces are not damaged in any way. Overall, I am really happy with the service I have received and would not hesitate to recommend."

Many thanks for the Erstwilder brooches. Siegrun, my wife, was delighted with them - she loved the VW Campervan "Vagabond Wheels" for its great fun design and "Fancie Joe Sparrow" for the sheer beauty of the design and colours.
She has been collecting Lea Stein, Tatty Devine and Marie-Christine Pavone. and others for years. I think she has a new love in her jewelry life.

I have ordered 11 erstwilder brooches from you (so far 😉), over the past few months, and they have always arrived really well packaged, very quickly and your communication is great! Also, you always stay on top of the new releases so that I don't have to wait (as I am quite impatient, lol!) like I would if I were to order them from Australia. So, in a nutshell, I just want to thank you for the fantastic customer care you provide!
