These bangles from Loretta Lam were heaped in a beautiful pile on a table. Loretta’s another artist who’s so busy that she doesn’t often update her web photos and this is our chance to get an update.
While she remains true to her signature patterns and muted palette, lately Loretta’s been applying the polymer pieces to sleek and dramatic bangle forms in a collage style. The finish is as smooth as the design.
Amazing bracelets, lovely patterns and impeccable finish.
I love, love, love them and I love Loretta so much. She is such a special person.

So impressive! I want to put them all on and feel the smoothness. Design, A+, craftsmanship, A+, color palette, A+.

I’m lucky enough to have seen these beauties in person… and they really are GORGEOUS! I’m also lucky enough to be sitting across a work table from Loretta, and if I was a huge fan of her work… Well… I’m now a huge fan of Loretta! 😉

Ah, a feast for the eyes this morning! This tertiary color palette, muted but still vibrant, really speaks to me. I especially love that beautiful bangle perched on top of the pile.
I am a huge fan of Loretta’s work and so happy to see her featured here on PCD. Congratulations, Loretta!

Loretta is a wise, generous, hilarious, beautiful soul. That so many of us have had the luck and honor to have her thoughtful mentoring is a testament to her unselfish contributions to our arts community. Thanks for this photo, Cynthia. I hope you take more!
Like Melanie, I’m a fan of Loretta’s work and Loretta herself!!! She’s a joy to spend time with. Recently,I saw these gorgeous bracelets in person, and told Loretta how much I loved them. The clean polished designs with their striking color combinations are a winner. Hugs Loretta.
thanks ladies for all the kind words and especially thanks Cynthia for making me “polymer queen for a day”!
