Lois Martens' Profile
I am a contemporary artisan jeweler living and working in Italy. All of my jewelry is designed by me and individually made. Many pieces are one-of-a-kind.
I was raised on an Oklahoma wheat farm and would never have imaged that one day I would have a jewelry lab in Rome, Italy.
Working in Italy has meant using high carat gold, precious stones and fairly traditional designs and techniques. Globalization (internet) has opened up my potential market and I am thoroughly enjoying making jewelry that continues the tradition of durable and functional jewelry while exploring new metal – stone combinations and working techniques.
