Contemporary Jewellery by Laura Nelson
Laura Nelson is a designer/maker from Yorkshire based in London. Since an early age Laura has been a lover of all things shiny. Originally trained as a product and furniture designer, her jewellery draws on her design skills and love of making. In 2017 Laura quit her job as a product developer and put all of her energy into creating jewellery. 
Laura is driven to create thoughtful pieces that use recycled precious metals, which are made ethically and responsibly with minimal waste. Pieces in the collection and bespoke items are made by Laura in her in her workshop, based in London's famous Hatton garden area. For some pieces of jewellery that feature stone settings, engravings and gold plating, Laura works with master craftspeople close by in Hatton Garden. Laura loves to explore different materials and processes. Her work has an honest and minimal aesthetic with a focus on contrasting textures. Thanks for joining her on this jewellery journey!  
At The National Festival of Making, Laura was presented with a One to Watch Award - 2018 from The Crafts Council.
