The pale grey painted brick walls, clever use of mirrors and the beautiful silver painted tin ceiling tiles make the space feel light and airy, despite the bijoux proportions.
Each piece in Laura ‘s collection is unique and very personal to her, many of them cast in precious metals from every day objects she has found or been given, each having it’s own story.
It all started when she sculpted a guitar pick in silver to be worn as jewellery as her musician friends kept loosing theirs and asking if anyone in the audience had one. It works as a real plectrum and Laura collaborated with a musician to ensure it produced the right sound.
Laura’s unique sense of style is evident in the way she displays her jewellery, the frame below contains pendants from the ‘Swims with Mermaids’ collection. All cast from objects found at the beach, including stones, coral, shells and a small crab claw.
The minute I walked into the shop I knew I wanted to treat myself to something, but the more I heard about Laura’s collection the harder it was to choose! In the end I went for a ‘Champers’ ring and Laura engraved it with my initials, all the fun of Champagne without the hangover :)
You can see Laura’s full collection on her website and be sure to pop in and say hello if you are in New York!
