Do you have one of those friends who are irreplaceable? A friend who is as rare and special as a priceless gem? For me, that’s my friend Emma, or ‘Em the gem’ as I like to call her. Em is full of laughter and light. We met at art school almost 20 years ago and bonded while sharing a dusty, dimly lit studio space in our final year. When it came time to make a special piece for Em’s birthday, I sat in my studio, listening to the rain beating down on the rooftop, trying to decide on something that is as special as she is. After much deliberation, I decided to engrave a sparkling gem in sterling silver, and blacken the silver with a natural sulphur oxide. This beautiful piece is made from 100% reclaimed sterling silver, with a 50cm long silver chain and a custom-made bone clasp. A precious piece for a true Gem.
“We treasure our handmade rings everyday. Laura was fantastic to work with!”
“I have commissioned Laura to design and create several pieces for me and my expectations have been exceeded every time. Her passion for both the origins of materials and commitment to telling a story is in itself shear artistry.”
“I love my Ace’s Wiggle Ring! It’s unique, it’s beautiful and the craftsmanship is superb. Part of the experience was the fantastic service I received; the considerate help when choosing my ring, the regular updates while my ring was being made, and the beautiful presentation when it arrived. I couldn’t be happier.”
