Loren Lewis Cole
Loren Lewis Cole creates textural and detailed pieces with a sense of ancestry, from nowhere particular, but a shared ancestry. Fusing bold and elemental with a delicate organic feeling that act as amulets and affirmations to the wearer. Loren believes that
Texture and pattern tell their own story, wordless and free. Texture influences how we feel and act, and is a direct route to our deep sensuality, free from intellectual limitations. She created work in vermeil, as well as 18 carat yellow gold.
During extensive travel, Loren has worked alongside goldsmiths in Asia and Africa, invited to sit on the floor and learn the skills that are handed down as generational stories, broadening her understanding of the cultural power of jewellery. Loren saw space for meaningful jewellery at a mid-market price and wanted to create pieces that brought these experiences to the modern woman in the form of contemporary talismans, reminding them of a feeling of ancestry, and the power of shared culture.
Wanting to stay true to her work harnessing the power of femininity, Loren works alongside a selection of skilled craftswomen in a private studio in Bristol, England. Using only FairTrade gold and recycled silver, the brand creates unique pieces for women, made by women, who aren't afraid to wear their sensuality.
