Outer Banks artist specializing in using resources from our beaches

Hi friend, call me Loli…metalsmith, dreamer of ideas, package designer, and everything else Sea Gypsy. 


Design, Function and Repurposing naturally found objects are primary in my creations. Discovery and curiosity remain driving forces behind my creativity. I attribute this interest to my time spent in the water growing up exploring our natural world, discovering the secrets that are always around us. Fortunate enough to live year around on the Outer Banks, Sea Gypsy was founded to provide organically shaped, minimalist, and unique designs that are made from found and repurposed organic materials in unexpected ways– the use of seashells, sea salt, sea glass, and beach stones are predominant.

Sea Gypsy handcrafts to honor our beach and the wearer. Made from hand-picked beach treasurers, each piece is dreamt up and crafted in my home studio…a workbench outside on the sand under the sun.  My heart and soul is in each and every piece and I hope you enjoy wearing or gifting them as much as I have enjoyed dreaming them and creating them with my own two hands.

I believe everyone has a story to tell. I tell mine with metal and a little help from the sea.

Hope to meet you on the beach someday!
