ABOUT THE ARTIST
At a young age, Sinork started showing interest in creative arts such as sculpting and painting.
When he was 14 years old, he became an apprentice to a renowned artisan and goldsmith in a small workshop in Grand Bazaar, Istanbul. With endless curiosity, Sinork sat next to his mentor day in and day out, watching him work for nearly six months before he had his first chance to touch a piece of precious metal and start working on it himself. At that moment, he knew this was it... his curiosity had just turned into passion!
His passion continued to grow as he perfected his art and explored jewelry history and design periods. He fell in love with the romance and timeless beauty of colors he found in antique jewelry. From there, he taught himself the most historic and versatile method of creating luscious colors: jewelry enameling. Jewelry enameling quickly became a crucial component to his designs and creative process.
“When I work with enamel, I am reminded that life is colorful and joyful."
After years of designing jewelry, Sinork made a name for himself with his notably recognizable style, sharing his creative vision by exhibiting his work in the most fashion forward cities and prestigious jewelry shows in Europe. He built a strong and loyal following of clients along with industry professionals who turned into a network of friends over time. In 2002, Sinork opened his doors to the atelier Lord Jewelry in the heart of the Downtown Los Angeles jewelry district and devoted himself to creating fine jewelry that fused his distinctive old-world European flair with high fashion. Lord Jewelry is the epitomeof Sinork's vision!
Sinork is not the only mastermind behind the magic of Lord Jewelry, though.
Like her father, Lena is dedicated to living a courageous and creative life. Some of Lena’s earliest memories with her father include time spent at his workshop sketching designs with him. But little did she know that the universe would eventually bring them back to these beautiful moments again.
She went on to study environmental biology and marketing; she chased her own curiosities exploring the Amazonian forests, camping on isolated islands to conduct wildlife research and help publish studies.
But when she realized the “hidden jewels” within her were indeed those times spent with her father, she joined the business full-time in 2015.
Dynamic, powerful, creative… Sinork and Lena make a fantastic father-daughter duo!
While dedicated to running the business together, they focus on their specialties. Sinork leads the design and manufacturing while Lena directs the brand. With their united efforts, Lord Jewelry continues to make its vibrant mark on the world.
