There’s nothing juicier than a step-by-step from Loretta Lam to kick off the week. First, the sketchbook magic pulls us in. Then the jumble of companion canes brings color into the equation.
“I spend a lot of time on the palette. I know the feelings that I want to convey and it has to be just right. In this case – fresh, vibrant and youthful but still sophisticated,” says Loretta.
The naked bead forms seem dark before she brightens them with slices of patterns.
If you go to her Facebook page, you’ll find a slideshow in which she arranges and completes the necklace plus lots more pictures to encourage you to trot off to your workspace.
Loretta will be teaching her Designing with Distinction methods in Durfort, France in October and in Monza, Italy in September.
Love this piece!!! Totally nailed the colors, so right about picking the perfect palette to convey what you want thru your work. Lovely work!

This is just so lovely. The colors and detail are so fresh that I can almost smell the dew on the morning grass in summer when looking at it.
I want to wear this! ?
I love Loretta’s work!
Thanks Cynthia. Always great to be your “queen for a day”

I love when an artist has such a distinctive style, you recognize it at a glance, and yet are also intrigued by their constant growth and progress. Loretta is one of those artists, someone whose work evolves, and yet always reflects their integrity and aesthetics. This piece is no exception. You GO, grrl!
