SYBIL

The Sybil Collection derives its name from classical literature, and is inspired by the mythological ancient Greek female oracles, known as Sibyls, whose prophecies emerged in layered riddles. At once feared and revered, the Sibyls embodied autonomy and intellect in its highest state. In a nod to Lola’s Nigerian Yoruba heritage, the bead, a traditional symbol of royalty, is represented by the scalloped forms that make up the frame around which delicate gold filament is meticulously intertwined. This interplay of rounded strength and fragile, taught lines represents the inherent contradictions of modern life, shaped into something beautiful and inspiring.
