Lauren began her jewelry design career in 2006 in Maui, Hawaii. Her personal interest in beading and wire sculpture quickly developed into a passion for metal work after completing an introductory metalsmith course at the Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center in Makawao, HI. Her acquired skills allowed her to build a framework for design styles as she’s continued to advance with chains, granulation, and stone setting coursework.
Lauren’s design ideas stem from patterns found in nature, ancient style, and industrial objects. She creates with quality materials including sterling silver, 14k gold, and ethically mined diamonds and gemstones. Each piece is a handworked original, finished with careful attention at Lauren’s home studio in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
Versatility comes to mind as most pieces in her collection easily accompany formal attire as well as casual. Lauren continues to create and excel, crafting fine jewelry pieces with such charm and personality that she hopes you will never want to take off.
