Jewelry by Laura Wallace
Jewelry by Laura Wallace of JaguarJems
For time before history, people have used natural materials, gemstones and precious metals, to create items of beauty to adorn themselves. Often these adornments were made to accessorize the garments worn, whether simple pieces of hand loomed linen or luxurious silks and satins. These pieces of what we now call jewelry were often handed down from generation to generation to become family heirlooms. Making unique wearable treasures is my inspiration, and colors that are current in the fashion industry help guide my choice of materials during my hours of hunting at the periodic gem shows that gather vendors from as far as India, China and the middle east. Making jewelry is my passion and the creative process is a meditation for my spirit. I hope my creations bring you the visual and tactile joy that making them brings to me. Thank you for loving and buying my jewelry.
