Lorraine West has always had an affinity for creating original art. As a wife, mother and artisan, her handcrafted contemporary and fine jewelry pieces are inspired by love and a passion for connecting with people on an intuitive and authentic level. Not only are her elegant pieces striking, but you feel them; they're designed to reflect your own inner beauty and power.
As a self-taught craftswoman, Lorraine pays homage to her Caribbean roots mixing bold and minimalist design sensibilities. Working with her hands comes naturally, thanks to her mother, a baker and her father, a carpenter. Welding and manipulating precious metals is what heals her soul. It’s more than a technique; it’s a spiritual process that’s poured into every design and is evidenced by jewelry that is as much high-end art as it is high fashion. Her symbolic and geometric designs have not only been seen on stars from Zendaya to Beyoncé, but also on countless everyday people who are drawn to the excellence of her craft.
Lorraine graduated from Fashion Institute of Technology with a BFA in Illustration and lives in Brooklyn with her son and husband, who both continue to support her handcrafted creations, all made with Love.
