After graduating in 1989 from Grays School of Art in Aberdeen with a Ba (Hons) 2:1 in Art and Design, Lorna Hewitt then worked for 7 years at A and R Murray in Edinburgh, a well-known and established family run jewellers, where she developed her skills in making and stone setting individually designed pieces. She then re-located to London where she worked for such renowned jewellers as Jess James, Dower and Hall, Cox and Power, and the famed "Jeweller to the Stars' Stephen Webster, who made Madonna and Guy Richie's wedding bands as well as pieces for Michael Stipe, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez and many more.
In 2006 Lorna decided to move back to her home town of Edinburgh and set up her own company, where she is now a commission based jeweller, working closely together with the client to create their dream piece of jewellery.
Alternatively she can remodel pieces using clients old gold or platinum jewellery, incorporating them into something more wearable and yet keeping the sentiment and nostalgia of the original metal. Lorna specialises in beautifully crafted, high quality, hand-made bespoke jewellery.
