Made in Missouri

“I like to think of it as a collaboration between me and the books: I aim to showcase their individual personalities into one-of-a-kind jewelry.”

With a formidable collection of wool felt she inherited from her late grandmother, Laura Bruland Shields began her design journey. She started by toying with laser cutting and a wide range of fabrics, and ended up discovering a way to repurpose one of her favorite objects: books. Now, Laura laser cuts literary works and fuses them into one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. With the help of her husband, Julien, and their small team, she designs from her studio in Oakland, California.

Notes
If your piece becomes dirty, feel free to wipe it off with a slightly damp sponge, and avoid scratching at it while wet. The jewelry is water resistant, but not waterproof.
