Lori Gottlieb

"I love making jewelry that reflects the energy, movement, and slightly out-of-focus images that I experience when I ride my bicycle. I try to capture the textures and patterns of the natural world around me in my work."

After leaving a long and successful career as a surgeon, Lori Gottlieb had the opportunity to reinvent herself. She considers herself lucky to live in an area of exceptional beauty, which serves as the inspiration for her jewelry. Working with her hands is second nature to her, whether it was in the operating room or now a jeweler. She loves texture, pattern, and gentle, sensual curves, which she brings together in her unique, highly wearable pieces. She considers her jewelry to be the only accessory a girl needs.

Gottlieb uses several techniques in her work, including fabrication, casting, forging, and occasionally die forming. She combines sterling silver with either 18k or 22k bimetal for greater contrast and versatility.

Gottlieb studied metalsmithing at Maryland Institute College of Art. Her mentors include Shana Kroiz, Kirsten Rook, April Wood, Wayne Werner, and Betty Heald, each of whom has different strengths and skillsets that have enhanced her knowledge. She has also taken part in many workshops and is committed to continuing to move forward and expand her knowledge base and technical skills. Learning is a continual process for her.
