enchaînements: masculine, noun;  a series, a chain of events, a linking of scenes, of ideas.   
 
Enchainements is not only the name and description of Laura's jewelry,  it explains how accidental meetings, introductions, events and happenings can take place and change a life forever.  Is it accidental......or a part of a plan?   
 
Laura's jewelry evokes a feeling of otherworldliness.  Her style varies from bright shiny contemporary to  look-what-I-found-at-the-Paris-Flea-Market chic..  She uses a myriad of jewelry making techniques, but the one almost always present in her designs is chainmail.  Some times the chainmail plays a starring role in design, with leather or metalwork playing the supporting role.  Often it's in the background, with a cluster of fabulous gemstones stealing the scene.  

Laura continues to discover new techniques that she incorporates into her designs; chainmail, leather working, enamel, chain-making and metal smithing.  Sterling Silver, Argentium Silver, Filled Silver, Copper, Filled Gold, Bronze and Stainless Steel are the primary metals used.  First, she envisions the design in her mind, sometimes inspired by an architectural shape on a historical building, a photo or even a scrap piece of metal.   Then each piece is personally hand crafted from start to finish.  All pieces are hand crafted in her home studio, resulting in an unconventional style you will want own for yourself.
