"I believe that jewellery ‘speaks’. When the right piece catches your eye, it draws you in. It is a reflection of you! I take great care to design quality, wearable art that marries form, function and a sense of play!"
Laura McIvor (Calgary, AB) enjoys the creative process. Many of her designs involve hammered textures. She love the way the hammered finish catches the light, much like the highlight stroke of a paintbrush. Semi-precious stones, crystals and pearls allow the introduction of colour. Laura looks to her paint pots for inspiration in mixing interesting colour combinations. She strives to marry form and function to ensure a quality piece of wearable art. It is very important to ensure that each piece not only looks and feels wonderful, but is also practical to wear.
Laura works full time in her home studio and thoroughly enjoy the daily commute. Her jewellery represents the culmination of her previous art forms. "A painters’ eye for colour, the creative spirit of music and the amazing power of silver, hammers, pliers and a torch".
