This month at Amiro Art & Found, we highlight the work of Lori Hammer.
Lori's brand of unique jewelry is called Boho Blvd. Bohemian inspirations with a modern twist. A juxtaposition of styles utilizing materials with an ageless appeal. These styles are brought back to life by mixing surreal and whimsy, vintage and modern, bright colors alongside stark black and white. The materials are old and new, vintage watch parts, jewelry remnants, charms and various findings. Lori has also gained fame through her beautiful fish leather bracelets, using sustainable leather from farmed and responsibly sourced fish such as Sea Bass and Tilapia.
We feature St Augustine artists, including Jan Master, Ginny Bullard, Wendy Mandel McDaniel, Deane Kellogg, Marcia Siany, Jim MacBeth, and more.
