Ancient Technique Modern Design
“Loren Teetelli mines ancient treasures for inspiration: King Tut’s cache of jewels, Greek artifacts. Hers is a physically strenuous process that involves first melting gold flakes and blending the liquid with silver and copper alloys to create a 22-karat gold, then pulling it into wire, weaving it into chains, hammering it, and granulating it to create her richly textured pieces.”
"For Loren Teetelli gold offers a portal to ancient civilizations - a perennial inspiration for her work, which she makes by hand in her Los Angeles studio."
"Intricately woven chains, finely executed granulation and hammered surfaces have a warmth and texture that immediately convey the painstaking labor that goes into their creation."
Modern, wearable pieces based on ancient rings used to denote power and status. Each centers an unusual colored stone, taking the place of the ancient seal as a personal emblem. The 22k gold setting is meticulously handmade and fitted to the stone, considering every element for beauty and comfort.
