Loretta Tryon received her BFA in metalsmithing and abstract drawing from Moore College of Art and Design. She is a member of the Lehigh Valley Art Alliance and a juried member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen. Using shellforming and anticlastic raising, Loretta combines graceful curves, hammered textures and patinas in her work. Hand engraved designs on the metal are unique details of her jewelry and sculpture. Currently she works from her independent studio in Coopersburg, PA. Her work has been exhibited at The Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, The State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg and The Reading Public Museum. Most recently, her work was published in “1000 Beads” and featured on the title page of “500 Silver Jewelry Designs” both by Sterling Publishing.
