Heartworks by Lori

Jewelry That Will Make Even Your Wardrobe Jealous!

Fashion jewelry designers these days are a dime a dozen. So many designers mass produce their necklaces, earrings, and bracelets that the Heartworks By Loriessence of individuality in each of those pieces is lost. Wouldn't it be special to have a pair of earrings or a lovely necklace that was uniquely hand-made and not replicated? That's why wearing Heartworks By Lori (www.heartworksbylori.com) is such a wonderful experience! One of my all time favorite designers is the lovely and talented, Lori Patton. In addition to having a heart of gold and a genuine compassion for people, she possesses immense skill and creativity in using silver, gold, high quality semi-precious stones, and pearls to make gorgeous jewelry.

I would like to share Lori's story with you as her inspiration to create jewelry began over a decade ago. Lori was always talented in crafts and creating art with her hands. She was also drawn to beautiful jewelry, but not to their exuberant prices! Lori was determined to challenge herself in learning how to make her own jewelry and as she did, she started mixing her own style into the designs. As the designer, Lori knows the importance of aesthetics and says, "I only make jewelry that I myself would be proud to wear." Her pieces have even been worn and praised by various celebrities.

Heartworks By LoriThe other aspect I absolutely love about Lori's jewelry are the affordable prices! They are all reasonably priced because Lori is fair and honest in not overcharging her customers and exuberantly marking up the cost of materials. While Lori creates each piece of jewelry unique unto itself, she is more than happy to take custom orders in creating specialized pieces or sets. She has designed jewelry for weddings and bridesmaids and has hosted a variety of jewelry shows. Likewise, if you see something you love on her "Sold" page displaying past designs, just contact Lori and she can create something similar.

Heartworks By LoriI am head over feet for Lori's collection of earrings. The "Silver Chimes" is a very chic piece, made of sterling silver teardrop hoop frames with brushed sterling silver teardrops within. These earrings are a customer favorite with a limited number available because it goes so well with every outfit. A personal favorite of Lori's is her "Jewel of the Nile" earrings and matching necklace, made of faceted Green Onyx teardrops, which hang delicately from rich gold vermeil scroll links on decorative gold chains. The green onyx is eye catching because of its rich and opulent color and this matching set is so lovely that it would be fit for a queen.

Another favorite is the gorgeous "Mademoiselle" necklace, made of teardrop shaped lustrous freshwater pearls intertwined Heartworks By Loriwith tiny pearl rounds that give it a delicate touch while shining with iridescent colors from its smooth polish. This breath-taking piece garners oohhs and aahhs from everyone that lays their eyes on this. Depending on the customer's preference, this can be custom made as a single or double strand. Also, the "Luau" necklace is a sensational piece that gives off a bolder look in drawing attention to its tropical hibiscus handmade ceramic pendant. The necklace itself is comprised of faceted rounds of dyed turquoise Jade that are wire-wrapped between textured sterling silver discs.

Today, even in the midst of leading a very busy life as a mother of three young boys, Lori continues to expand her creativity and develop new and unique designs that will fit the styles and personalities of every woman. On a personal note, Lori embraces each opportunity in making a new piece because it brings her joy to know someone will be wearing it. Lori appropriately chose the name "Heartworks" to show that all her works come from her heart.

Coming soon! Be sure to visit her website as her new collection of limited edition pendants will be launching shortly. She will be collaborating with a highly accomplished artist to create wearable art pendants featuring original artwork. Lori's jewelry is unforgettable and special as each piece is a treasure unto itself. There's something for everyone at Heartworks By Lori, and her jewelry will make even your wardrobe jealous! All jewelry can be purchased on her website at www.heartworksbylori.com. Have fun shopping!
