Black Swan Fever Strikes Again at Erickson Beamon

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We have a feeling that Karen Erickson and Vicki Beamon—the ladies behind eternally-hip, oft-coveted jewelry collection Erickson Beamon—must have really had a Black Swan moment. Their Milk Studios presentation for Fall/Winter '11 featured 12 youth ballerinas from the Russian American Foundation's Bolshoi Ballet Academy posing and pirouetting to the sounds of countertenor Jim Palmer of the Metropolitan Opera and violinist Tim Fain. Click the gallery to see the action—even if you can't see the jewelry (we couldn't either).
