    I wanted to explore and represent the ancient art forms of the Korean kingdom of Silla in this collection. Its etherial, paper as metal textures and characteristically Asian forms. — Loren Nicole

     


     

    Loren began her career in archaeology working on numerous digs in Central and South America researching ancient civilizations of northern Peru and then as a conservator for ancient and ethnographic textiles at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in New York City. It was there where what began as a curiosity to better understand objects of the past, developed into a passion for ancient metalsmithing that ultimately eclipsed her academic interests and resulted in the launch of her inaugural collection in Summer 2016.

    Her love of the past and studied approach continues to be visible in her work, whether through researching museum collections of ancient chains to experimenting and perfecting her approach to chain making, or by employing the 3500 year old technique of granulation.

     

    This is such a strong signature piece from Loren Nicole’s Silla collection that we knew we had to have it. It is a true heirloom in the making to be treasured for generations to come.
