    Silvercravt is a run by Lesi Lorena, an avid stone lover & self taught silversmith. She creates each piece in her home shop based in Minneapolis, MN.

    Hello darklings, my name is Lesi.


    I am originally from the small town of Ft. Rucker, Alabama, but have spent the majority of my life in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, where I currently reside. I have been creating silver jewelry since late 2016. I am a self taught, aspiring silversmith.

    I began my smithing journey during my first year of highschool when I took a jewelry design class. I learned most of the basics of smithing: cutting, sawing, soldering, setting and construction. After many battles with the very first piece that I had ever made, I was in love. Unfortunately my school closed shortly after this class had ended and I was transferred to a school that did not offer anything even remotely close to jewelry design. It would be many, many years before I came close to a sheet of silver again.

    Around 2014, I was sitting in a bookstore with my partner on a sunny afternoon in Minneapolis. I was browsing the hobby section as he looked at books about wilderness survival and I came across a very old book on smithing. It was mostly words with pencil sketches of tools, processes and materials on each page but it was all that I needed to see to remember how I felt in that highschool class so many years before. By this time in my life I had forgotten the majority of the skills that I had learned in that highschool jewelry class but I knew in my heart that I needed to relearn them, no matter the time or cost that it would take to do so. Thus began the great debate of school vs learning on your own...

    I spoke with my peers and even some wonderful, kind smiths on social media and I eventually came to the conclusion that I was more than ready to purchase some equiptment and relearn the craft on my own. It took me about two years to save up for everything that I needed, but it was worth every struggle along the way.

    By early 2016 I was making small, simple rings from silver coins in my apartment workshop, which was just a small table in the corner of my bedroom. The tools that I could use and the amount of racket that I could make was very limited, which unfortunately kept me from branching out and learning new skills. Come late 2016, I moved into a house where I was ecstatic to set up shop in the creepy, dreary basement. It's very cold and often eerily dark, but it's my favorite place in the entire world. Since then I have been creating as much as possible between my everyday life and my other fulltime job.

    As for the inspiraiton behind my silver work, I am called to by the beauties and complexities found in the earth, literature, decay, rebirth, bones, botany and all things magick. I love using sterling silver, beautiful, unique stones and creating pieces that emphasize the natural beauty of the stones.

    In my future I am hoping to take a professional class to learn new skills and use some tools that are currently out of my reach. I thank you for seeing me along in this process and I am eternally grateful for your support, whether it be a purchase, a comment, a like or a just your admiration.

    Thank you for checking out my shop, I hope that you see something that calls to you.

    Love and light,
    Lesi
