Work from the Loretta Lam studio
has delighted us for several years.
Hand-sculpted pieces made with polymer
combine many different effects in her
creation of uniquely contemporary jewelry.
Each of her creations are
sophisticated, versatile, and at times,
Of all the many pieces of jewelry
that Loretta creates we most admire
An inro is defined as
a small, usually ornamented box
that is hung from the waist sash of a
Japanese kimono and has
compartments for holding small objects
such as cosmetics, perfumes, or medicines.
Over time inros have evolved from
strictly utilitarian articles into objects
of high art and immense craftsmanship.
Let's take a look at some examples
of her sculptural art to wear.
Here is another inro.
Here is one more example.
We are inspired by Loretta's
wonderful sculptural jewelry
and her detailed craftsmanship.
Using color and form she creates a
of dense richness and complexity.
We find Loretta's work to be
inspiring and imaginative.
