New York based designer Lori McLean is a self-taught jeweler and metalsmith with a background in design and printmaking. McLean's jewelry line takes its aesthetic cues from her studied appreciation of vintage and antique jewelry. Her pieces pay homage to 18th and 19th century jewelry styles and techniques, and often incorporate antique gemstones. At the same time, their unique, pared down, eminently wearable shapes and settings clearly mark them as belonging squarely in the 21st century.
