Lorin Thunell is a designer, silversmith, and owner of “Four Corners Silverworks.” He has spent 30 years behind the bench and desk as a jewelry artist and instructor at the high school, university, and currently the college level. "I try to instill the same passion for creating jewelry to my students that I feel every time I sit at my bench and fashion a silver object. Making jewelry is more than putting parts together, it is the art of visualizing an idea, designing it on paper so as to work out the relationship between the design, choice of metal and stones, and the technical expertise to make it all come together". Lorin lives and teaches in Utah, one of only four states in the United States where four corners meet or touch each other—Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico. "I love the folklore of the west. I am especially drawn to the petroglyphs chiseled and painted on the canyon walls of the four corners region. The stories etched in stone inspire the “figures” I design and create, I take pride in my jewelry creations and I am most happy when I see them get a good home. Perhaps you are looking for unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry, then his work may fill your needs and tastes.
