LOKI PATERA is driven by the notion that the human body could be linked to another realm through adornment, as a talisman becomes an interlocutor between the physical-now and the imagined-then. When crafting a commission, a talisman specific only to you, we attempt to distill your notion of the imagined-then into this piece. What materials make you feel most protected ? Which ones connect you to your ancestors or your kin ? Can we salvage a gem from a family heirloom and redesign its molten shell to better adorn your body ? How will this piece sit on your body, and what will it feel like against your skin ? – as you walk ? – as you swim through a body of water ? What sort of talisman can transport you, even if for a moment, into another realm ?



Please answer only those questions that apply to you or your commission. If you are not sure just leave it blank ! 

This could be a single piece or a set. We can create rings, earrings, necklaces, chokers, bracelets, anklets or experimental pieces.

This can be a material that you bring to us or one that we source for you. Does it have a special significance or family history to you?

We have a strong formal vocabulary that we use when making, but if you have a specific form you feel aligned with, such as a thorn or canyon, we can work it into the piece. 

This could be a salvaged stone/pearl from an old piece of jewelry, or a specific stone or color that you like.
