‘to express using few or little words.’
Embrace the true nature and power of jewellery; express yourself and tell your story through the act of wearing jewels.
Every piece is designed and crafted by hand, using traditional methods and sustainable materials. As a British jewellery designer and creator, my passion is to empower you to express yourself and bring ideas to life. Crafting jewellery that is made to be worn — by you
After spending over 10 years working in the commercial jewellery industry in the UK, where I worked in both retail and as a bench jeweller (doing repair work), I had a huge shift in mindset. This experience was an eye-opener; there was a focus on quantity, not quality, and everything was mass-produced, sometimes leading to sentimental pieces of jewellery being difficult to repair. I became frustrated, feeling out of alignment with my values and my desire to create was lost.
This led to the creation of Laconic.
The Power of Jewellery
Sometimes putting together an outfit that looks unique and feels true to our personality can be a challenge, especially with clothes. It can be so much easier to express your authentic style with a piece of jewellery, instantly transforming how you look and feel. Jewellery items that have a story to tell, reminding us of people close to us, special events or places once travelled, have much more personal meaning too. These are stories that can be re-told and remembered through wearing your piece of jewellery.
Laconic was established knowing it was possible to create a business with more purpose: making jewellery that’s well-crafted here in the UK, made to last and sustainable, without literally costing the Earth. With my background in design, I knew there was an opportunity for you to have something more tailored and customised, with a story to tell, to express yourself and connect you people and places that are special to you.
Inspired by travel and my own Scottish heritage, designs are influenced by the symbolism, myths and storytelling Scotland is famed for. As a British jewellery designer, each piece I make tells a story designed to help you express your true self; to bring confidence, positivity and strength when you need reminding.
Crafted in small batches, using traditional Goldsmithing techniques. There is careful consideration to each piece with a responsible mindset on where the materials are sourced and how the piece is crafted.
After each item of Laconic jewellery is responsibly crafted, the work is hand-finished and polished. Once complete, each jewel is carefully packaged in a gift box with a personalised note, ready to be worn and loved everyday — by you.
