Erickson Beamon was founded by Detroit natives Karen and Eric Erickson and Vickie Beamon. Few designers can provide their work to everyone from the First Lady Michelle Obama to Lady Gaga. They are credited with designing the chandelier earring. They provide the jewelry for runway shows for design houses like Donna Karan, John Galliano, Zac Posen, Givenchy, Anna Sui, and Emanuel Ungaro. Their celebrity clientele ranges from Madonna, Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce, and Nicole Kidman. Their "dollhouse" chandelier earrings are permanently ensconced in the Costume Institute of America, and other entire collections in London's Victoria and Albert Museum.
