Lora Hart

My Inspirations. A long held fascination for historical detail and architectural decoration can be seen echoed in my designs. Softly glowing silver, bronze and gold gilt vessels, and jewelry are warmed by velvety patinas and shimmering gemstones. A combination of lusciously malleable metal clay and traditional metalsmithing techniques come together to construct whatever contours my designs demand.

My little studio is an always changing cabinet of curiosity, populated by found objects, exotic photographs, and containers filled with colorful gems, antique buttons and otherwise forgotten objects that help spark my creative imagination.

LORA HART was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and moved to historic Richmond, Virginia in 2012. Lora is the Artistic Advisor and one of twenty Senior Instructors for PMC Connection. A metal clay artist inspired by historic imagery, Lora’s work has been featured in books, magazines, and calendars and her jewels are sold in galleries and online.
As a designer, educator, and creativity coach, her passion for the art and business of jewelry making has taken her across the United States to help other makers explore their own passions, develop their craft and expand their skills. Please contact Lora directly regarding international sales. LoraHartJewels@Earthlink.net Studio Visits are Welcome by Appointment.
