About the Artist...

Martin T. Lopez is the designer and creator of Adornments NYC. He is also a freelance set and costume designer for theatre and opera, which is where he started making jewelry, recreating historical pieces for the stage. This, combined with his studies of fashion history is where his love of incorporating vintage materials comes from. It is a chance to give vintage elements a new life, whether they are old, worn, broken pieces or even vintage dead stock that has never been made into anything. He sees it as letting these precious little forlorn treasures achieve their destiny. Martin’s creations combine vintage chandelier crystals, vintage skeleton keys, vintage filigree, vintage coins and vintage beads and combines them with other modern materials including semi precious gems, pearls and other treasures. The aesthetic is romantic and nostalgic, but with a clear, modern sensibility - allowing the vintage elements to shine, without being too precious. The combination of intricate victorian elements with modern, even industrial elements and handmade techniques gives his designs a distinct energy.

In addition to his creations for real people, Martin has created custom jewelry and other accessories for imaginary people for various theatre companies including Seattle Repertory Theatre, Santa Fe Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Papermill Playhouse and Goodspeed Musicals. He has also created custom pieces for The Wedding Singer on Broadway, Teatro Zinzanni, Bumbershoot and for the cast of the Green Day musical American Idiot for their performance with Green Day on the Grammy Awards. His pieces have been worn by celebrities such as Lynn Redgrave, Anne Wilson, and Donna McKechnie.
