Lorraine Bowe and Vanessa Prieto's Profile

About

We’re a mother/daughter team that creates jewelry, art, and home décor. Living here in sunny South Florida, less than a mile from the ocean, much of our work is coastal inspired, however our art takes us wherever it takes us! My mom also loves tribal motifs, while I love architecture and nature.

I’m the daughter, Vanessa Prieto, an interior designer by trade. My mom, Lorraine Bowe, is a jeweler and an artist.

I’ve always been a huge fan of my mom’s work. She started as a seamstress, but in the late 1960’s she discovered metal etching. For many years she honed her craft of creating art and jewelry through art shows and wholesaling to small retail shops up and down the east coast of the US.

I grew up in that shop, learning the trade from her. At the age of 5 I was already beading anklets, and by 13 I was starting to design my own jewelry! Over the years of working, then running, her shop, I discovered my love of interior design. After earning my degree in interior design, I spent 4 years in Chicago working in the field, before moving back home to start my own design firm. I still love to dabble in jewelry design, as well as photography and furniture design.

We’ve created Lorraine Bowe’s Designs as a way to showcase our work to the world. I truly hope you enjoy our labors of love as much as we’ve enjoyed creating them for you! We believe that Lorraine Bowe’s Designs will soon become your favorite little Etsy shop to stop in when you need a special gift, or just a great treat for yourself. But don’t keep us as your little secret… share us with your friends!!
