PROCESS

Metals and stones are filled with emotions.  I look closely to see the character of each stone . The uniqueness of each stone is what gives me the inspiration for a specific piece. My goal is for you to feel a connection to the jewelry and the powers that each stone brings.

My greatest love is working with my hands and eyes.  Because of this, making an object that I want to wear is sacred to me. I do not believe in perfection, but I seek refinement. The hands on approach of hammering, drilling, and finishing each piece is a key part of Laurel Patrick’s esthetic. Seeing my own hand in the jewelry is what Laurel Patrick is made of.

When my dear friend and artist Rachel Domm first introduced me to Calico Wallpaper, it was love at first sight. I was instantly captivated by the astral Wabi marbled dreamscapes and Aurora sunset hues. I dreamed of having the Calico designs part of the Laurel Patrick space.

I could hardly hold back my excitement when I finally met Rachel and Nick, the creators of Calico Wallpaper, while at a "Collage with Caris" event sometime after. I had the pleasure of seeing their entire collection… the studio was bursting with serenity and inspiring energy.

Our perfect day soon followed, when Laurel Patrick Jewelry and threads were modeled by dear Rachel Domm and photographed by the talented Gieves Anderson in the Calico world. This day was truly inspirational for me to be surrounded by the talented Domm and Calico's cosmic creations.

The journey and the passion of the process unfolds by using all your senses to create a final product.

We will continue to dream in aurora hues #thepowers #crystalmagic.
