Designer Profile : Loriece

A large portion of our jewellery is made by the incredibly talent Loriece, read more about this lady

Loriece graduated from George Brown College in 1978 with a degree in Jewelry Arts. She developed her skills as a goldsmith working for a local jewelry store, which prepared her to follow my dream and open her own custom jewelry business.

Loriece had always been fascinated by horses, so when her friends invited her to join their riding lessons, she jumped at the opportunity.  She visited the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto later that year in search of jewelry that celebrated the horse and equestrian lifestyle, but surprisingly it lacked representation.  This was when she shifted her entire focus finding inspiration in all things horse, from her morning hacks, working in the arena and tending the barn. Loriece literally carved, sculpted and cast these experiences into her art – pieces of fine gold and sterling silver that articulated the special relationship between the riders and their horses.

Her work has always been about creating authenticity through detail. When she is in her studio working she is in the zone. All inspirations and skills combine as one. It’s comparable to riding, being collected and engaging all elements to create a light and powerful flow of movement and beauty. At that very moment, you and the horse are one.

The various disciplines offer her an unlimited resource to create from; however, it is the custom orders that feed her creative soul. From the very first riding lesson, she became a transitive medium capturing the customer’s imagination to create an artistic piece of jewelry that will tell their story and leave a lasting impression for generations to pass down.

This talented lady’s passion shows through in the detail in each and every piece that she has created. Spoil your self or a loved on and buy them a piece from Loriece’s fantastic, something to treasure forever.
