About Lois

Artist and goldsmith Lois Martin creates contemporary jewellery from her studio in the Mendip Hills in Somerset, in the west of England. Her jewellery’s quirky, rustic beauty draws its inspiration from ancient treasures and earthy, natural textures.
 
Lois originally trained as an artist, and after owning a much-loved fashion boutique in the Victorian seaside town of Weston-super-Mare, she enrolled at Bristol School of Art to learn traditional goldsmithing techniques, before launching her eponymous jewellery label in 2010.
 
Each tiny treasure is thoughtfully created in 100% recycled sterling silver. Lois has long had a love of silver, its ethereal magical quality is steeped in history and myth. Everything is responsibly made in England in small batches and sent out to you in eco-friendly, recyclable packaging.
