Loriann Hampton Designs
Lincoln, NE. USA
I have been hand fabricating jewelry for about 5 years, mostly
sterling silver, but am getting into 14K white and gold. In my hand
fabrication, I love making unusual rings, pendants, and earrings.
Most of my designs are on the cutting edge and very contemporary. I
love playing with reticulation as you never know what you will get
and then it become "one of a kind", which my clients like! I also
love to acid etch, use and mix various patina's and play with mokume
I have just recently learned to carve in wax and can see alot of
possiblities in that especially in rings that can be very
dimensional. I am always seeking to learn new stuff, I guess I have
not SETTLED on a style for me and that is what my customers
appreciate. Because I am a one person shop, my designs are getting
in more demand so I am starting to work with some casters to ease on
some of the more simpler areas.
To me making jewelry is not work, but an expression of myself and I
really love it!
