Lore Segers Jewels stands for jewelry beyond the ordinary.
The accessories are created with an uncommon use of materials and have a design with a twist on what’s expected.
They have a confident design, are stripped to the essence and are surprising.
We find balance between sculptural and playful.
All pieces are handmade and undergo an unrepeatable gesture, therefor each of them is unique.
The latest collection highlights the oxidation of several metals. A natural process which is basically the destruction of the metal through ageing.
What would take years/decades in natural circumstances, is manipulated to achieve these beautiful colors and textures within hours/days. Hence the name of the collection, Fast Forward.
Each jewel contains an oxidised piece, contrasted with a second piece in the same metal, though in its known, polished appearance.
The designer, Lore Segers, is a Belgian architect. While working on her internship she took classes to master the art of goldsmith. Her architectural background is visible in the geometrical, minimal designs.
She works with precious metals, as well as brass, copper and minerals. Also, she enjoys to explore the possibilities of new materials.
Besides architecture, she’s inspired by simplicity and nature.
All pieces are designed & handmade in the designer's workshop in Leuven, Belgium.
In november she was recognised as a certified craftswoman by FOD Economie, K.M.O. in Belgium.
