The Etruscan Collection came about many years ago while Loren was flipping through a museum catalog and discovered an element on a pair of bracelets from Ancient Etruria, the predecessors to Ancient Greece in Sicily. She had never seen the filigree pattern represented before and was determined to understand how to make it. After much research, Loren developed a tool to bend the wire in the pattern represented throughout the collection. Through precision, skill and a lot soldering, the pattern is assembled in layers. By assembling the layers in asymmetric and strong architectural lines this recognizably Etruscan element, transforms into the contemporary landscape.
