Lola Brooks has always been captivated by the Victorian-era concept of jewelry as a form of communication, and the role of personal adornment in cultural identity. Nowhere is that more evident than her own informal-yet-elegant large-scale designs that lend themselves to self-expression.

Stones, often hand-cut, are the starting point for Brooks, who incorporates a prism of gems spanning rubies to tourmaline in her collections — though she has a professed fondness for diamonds.Reflecting influences ranging from the Victorians to the Arts & Crafts movement and modernist American studio jewelry, each piece is fabricated or carved in wax and cast, resulting in limited production and one-of-a-kind works.
An artist and educator who studied at Pratt Institute and earned a BFA in metals at SUNY New Paltz, Brooks has had her work chronicled in numerous publications. Her jewelry can be found in the permanent collections of New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Art and Design.
