Lori McLean Bio

Designer Lori McLean


Lori McLean is a self-taught jeweler and metal smith whose foundational background includes formal training in printmaking and design. She began making jewelry in 1991 in San Francisco, where her line of sterling and enamel pieces soon became well known for their layered planes of colorful, translucent resin on textured silver backgrounds. Much of this work was influenced by modernist design, and in 2000 Lori was asked by the Museum of Modern Art to create an exclusive collection of jewelry based on the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright.

In 2011, Lori began working her way back into full-blown jewelry production. She began by studying stone setting with a master Japanese metal smith in his Chelsea Studio. Obtaining a Graduate Certificate in Diamond Grading at the Gemological Institute helped further pave the way to sourcing the perfect antique stones to incorporate into her collection. The new line is a throwback to 18th and 19th century design, with the benefit of the unique, wearable settings and finishes which have become Lori’s trademarks.
