It all began when Lauren was only seven and her aunt Dawne gave her long, blue-beaded earrings that she had made by hand. Though not a girly child she wore them happily, despite the very same aunt laughing at her for wearing such large earrings at such a young age.
As an adult Lauren's interest in art and adornment led her to travel and study extensively. In addition to completing a silversmith course at Central St. Martin's in London, England, Lauren has a degree in Art History from UBC. Her passion for jewellery design led her to complete the Jewellery Art & Design diploma program at Vancouver Community College.
Since graduating 6 years ago, Lauren has created playful and elegant jewellery from a variety of media. Lauren is best known for her one of a kind Storybook earrings, made from vintage illustrations. Women love to wear them and yes, they are big earrings.
