About Lori

I’ve been trying to describe who I am forever and it’s like do we ever really know who we are? Well,  I’m writing this at 12:19 on a Saturday night after having spent a wonderful day in Long Island at a craft fair, and being motivated once again to BRAND myself and my designs.  Anyhow, crazy thing – I’ve been a graphic designer for 13 years but the seed of Gifted Unique started about 20 years ago when I began to go to jewelry trade shows.  I was hooked immediately and started trunk shows and representing other jewelry designers.  The more I talked with designers, the more I realized I just wanted to create my own line. So now, for the most part, the jewelry you see on the website is designed by me, for me, (in case I don’t sell it–ah the maker’s dilemma. ) So that’s it. Painstakingly designing each piece, for you, for me, for the universe.  Always with diamonds, and something unique.

My Inspiration

Listen, I live in Manhattan — you can’t help but be inspired.  Everywhere you go, everywhere you look, there is beautiful design …from clothes to buildings, to jewelry.  Yes, being only a 20-minute walk from the diamond district does major damage to a girl’s wallet, mine included.  But also, sometimes too, I count myself lucky to get a pretty awe-inspiring sunset nearly every night.  So, just look around you.

My Inspiration
One of a kind...a lot of the time

One of a kind...a lot of the time

The uniqueness of my gemstone bead and diamond jewelry comes from the combination of pieces that can’t be found anywhere else.  Living in NYC gives me access to a gazillion vendors selling everything from vintage gemstones to repurposed diamonds.  While some pieces have multiple quantities, many do not — since I used just the only pendant, charm, or stone for each piece.  I will try to replicate pieces that you love, as best as I can!

Nearly every piece that I design has diamonds.  I love the sparkle and the luxurious look that a diamond gives each piece.  If you are looking for something specific, tell me, and 9 times out of 10, I can create it for you.
