‘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 maker, my passion is to empower you to express yourself and bring ideas to life. Crafting jewellery that is made to be worn — by you.
My design inspirations range through travelling; experiencing culture and history, my Scottish heritage; folklore influenced by the natural landscape and exploring design boundaries. I have an appreciation for minimal and sculptural design as well as consideration for the history and purpose of jewellery.
Created in small batches, I use traditional Goldsmithing techniques that include lost-wax casting and forging. The cast elements are combined with hand-built details fabricated by cutting sheet metal, forging wire and soldering.
After each item of Laconic jewellery is responsibly made and assembled, the work is hand-finished with either a high polish or a satin surface, depending upon the design. Once complete, each jewel is carefully packaged in a gift box, ready to be worn and loved everyday.
As an independent jewellery designer, I feel that I have a small but important responsibility within the jewellery industry to champion better practises when it comes to sourcing materials and manufacturing.
In order to be as sustainable as possible, I work closely with suppliers in the UK to source materials, this also includes outsourcing production methods such as casting. All the silver in the jewellery is 100% recycled (where possible) and all items are made in small batches to combat overproduction.
Each piece of jewellery is handcrafted using a variety of traditional Goldsmithing techniques, with an emphasis on lost wax casting, where each piece is carved in wax and cast in metal to be worked on further. I strive to make jewellery that is versatile and well-crafted but never with a machine-made aesthetic.
This bespoke, slow process allows for careful consideration to each piece and ensures I can continue to research and learn about how to source the most sustainable materials and use the most efficient production methods as possible. This also means that I can work closely with you to tailor and customise my designs to your specifications. Contact to find out more.
