Lochlin Smith was born in Greenwich Connecticut. His father and mother were talented portrait and visual artists. Early in life, Lochlin realized that artistic expression and hand work were in his blood, and that 9-5 jobs were not. He attended a NYC college focusing on abstract painting.

In 1972, he left the intensity of the city and moved to Vermont. He set up a studio in an old barn and began sculpting and painting. After a few years, he found himself designing jewelry. He twisted, torched, pounded, and shaped bronze rods and sheets into unusual, one-of-a-kind earrings, bracelets, pins, and neckpieces.
Lochlin draws inspiration from his own Celtic ancestry, as well a from Aztec, Egyptian, and aboriginal artisans – reinterpreting, never copying, the visions of these ancient masters. The natural world has always captured and held his imagination as well, as evidenced by the organic twists and turns of the pliant metal.
Lochlin says; “When I go to work, I just walk out my kitchen door, down a spiral staircase and into my shop. It is a magical space overlooking the city of Montpelier and the hills beyond. I have been blessed in my life to be able to express my creativity every day. One of my greatest joys is to know that so many people wear my jewelry as a way to express themselves. When you wear a piece of my jewelry, you sense the connection between the contemporary and the ancient. This work becomes a part of the wearer. My sculptural jewelry is created primarily in bronze. The bronze is hand worked in many ways and then given a variety of rich surface finishes including natural bronze, antique silver, ocean blue and dark copper.”
Lochlin Smith Designs are available throughout the US at many fine art and craft galleries.
