Larissa Loden designs for women who aren’t afraid to express themselves. They are strong and fearless, interested in history and love to dress up. She is inspired by stories behind the pieces and those wearing them, and feeds off seeing her jewelry complete a look.
Vintage meets modern in Larissa’s eco-friendly collection. Many components used are dead stock, made to be sold long ago but missed their chance. She gives these vintage treasures a new opportunity to shine by transforming them into modern, edgy jewelry. Larissa also loves to incorporate gemstones into her collections, utilizing both raw and custom cuts in the designs.
Whether on the hunt for unique objects or hammering them into hot bracelets, it’s all about the process. Larissa’s studio sits in Northeast Minneapolis, a hub for creativity. Using methods including drilling and soldering, stamping and hammering, her collection is fervently handmade by herself and a small team of makers.
Hailing from a very small town in upstate New York, Larissa learned the inner workings of a business early on by working in her parents’ store. She became part of the family business when she was old enough to polish an apple.
Larissa established her own company in 2005 and has been forging jewelry ever since. She continues to push harder to create modern pieces that tell a story. She hopes to establish Larissa Loden Jewelry as a national brand and one day open a flagship store.
