Who we are
My design inspirations range through travelling; experiencing culture and history, my Scottish heritage; folklore influenced by 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.
I use traditional Goldsmithing techniques, including lost-wax casting and forging. Cast elements are combined with hand-built details fabricated by cutting sheet metal, forging wire and soldering.
Laconic was born from my desire to do something I wholeheartedly believed in and was passionate about. It’s been influenced by my experiences and I continue to learn and be inspired by what’s possible. Years spent at art school taught me the design process, drawing and designing to a brief and knowledge of how materials work together to craft them into existence, building upon this by working in the industry learning and honing my skills. I hope that when you see and wear a piece of Laconic jewellery you can appreciate the attention to detail within each element, which has been designed with sustainability and responsibility in mind.
