About Loren Nicole

Loren Teetelli

Loren Teetelli

 Loren began her career in archaeology, having received Bachelor of Arts degrees in Art History and Anthropology from the University of Vermont in 2012. In the years after completing her degree, Loren worked as an archaeological lab technician at the American Museum of Natural History, on numerous digs in Central and South America, pursued grant funded research of the ancient civilizations of northern Peru and served as a conservator for ancient and ethnographic textiles of the Americas, Oceana and Africa Collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in New York City. Loren had the intention of continuing onto a PhD program to advance her academic pursuits, but was quickly lured in by metalsmithing. What began as curiosity to better understand objects of the past, developed into a passion that eclipsed her academic interests. During the time Loren was working at the Met, she took ancient metalsmithing coursework and special workshops as her skills became more advanced.

Guided by an instinctual decision, Loren declined her graduate school position at Cambridge University, packed up her belongings and headed west to California in 2015, where she now creates jewelry out of her Venice Beach based studio.

Her intention with Loren Nicole is to create elegant, comfortable, everyday jewelry for men and women; pieces that will easily weave into their daily uniform. The designs are meant to evoke the wonders of the ancient world; honoring ancient goldsmiths, by using the same techniques that have been in place for centuries and working exclusively in high karat yellow gold to inject that feeling of warmth and brightness that is only accessible through this medium.
