Swim my Manta-way…
As an avid diver, John feels at home in the ocean. When his mum contacted me to request a custom piece for his birthday, I was excited by the idea of creating a custom made piece of jewellery for an adventurer and leaped into the brainstorming process. It needed to be sturdy and durable to withstand John’s adventurous lifestyle. The Manta Ray is his favourite animal and he has spent endless hours travelling all corners of the globe to dive with these majestic creatures, so this seemed like the perfect place to start.
I chose an industrial strength cord so it would be fit for an adventurer. I then engraved Manta Rays swimming around the surface of the metal with a message ‘for John’ engraved on the back. This piece is made from 100% recycled sterling silver with a brushed and blackened surface, created with a natural sulphur oxide.
This bracelet will travel with John on all his newest adventures and he can always look down and think of his lovely Mum. Happy Birthday John and enjoy your travels with a squadron of Manta Ray friends!

“Laura was attentive and really listened to what I wanted. She is very friendly and easy to deal with, communicating through the process with sketches, test models and the finer details. I would highly recommend Laura for any jewellery with a personal touch. It makes it all the better knowing its made from reclaimed silver!”
” There is something very special about knowing where my jewellery comes from and the hands that crafted it. I get compliments every time I wear my earrings from Laura.”
“I met with Laura to discuss commissioning a custom made sterling silver headpiece for my wedding. Everything in the shops seems so mass produced and I wanted something truly special. Laura asked all the right questions and created exactly what I wanted. She kept me informed the whole way. The end result was so beautiful, more than I could have ever imagined!”
