bio-LHN

British-born Lewis Williams studied jewelry at Central Saint Martins and The London Guildhall before moving to New York City to work for the prestigious jewelry designer Philip Crangi. The name LHN pays homage to Lewis’s grandfathers...Henry, a boxer and captain in the British Army, and Nicholas, a cobbler.

His unique hand-fabricated pieces, made in his Brooklyn studio, are influenced by classical antiquity, from the Roman era through Byzantine and Victorian times, and incorporate ancient processes such as carving into wax and casting into brass, silver and gold. Using various techniques — hand-sawing, engraving, hammering, soldering — the result is eclectic and androgynous jewelry that is aesthetically beautiful and feels like old treasure.
