Featured Studio: Kottage Kreations

Our guild featured studio this week is "Kottage Kreations" aka Laurie. Laurie is a fairly new jewelry artist yet, after browsing through her studio it is a bit difficult to believe this. Her designs are really quite lovely and it sure seems like she has been designing for ever.

Kottage Kreations is filled with unique one of a kind pieces that are lovingly made from gemstones, Swarovski crystals, pearls, shell beads, glass beads, and ceramic beads. Laurie loves finding new beads and charms in different colors to design with.

Most of the time Laurie's inspiration comes from just taking out some beads and playing around with them. Yep, I sure do relate to this myself and am so sure that many of you do too.
Her inspiration also comes from the beauty of nature, magazines, and catalogues too.
There have been many nights that Laurie will wake up in the middle of the night with some great design that she is anxious to make.

Laurie is an eclectic jewelry designer who loves to create different styles of jewelry.
She is very proud of her creativity and is constantly growing and evolving as a jewelry artist.
Laurie also loves to create custom orders so just contact her if you have something special in mind designed for you.

Here are some of the fabulous creations found in "KottageKreations":




I must also say that it is wonderful having Laurie as a member of the Ajdjss Guild. She is very supportive of other members, she is very kind, and she is a special all around person.
It is quite nice to get to know her.
You are invited to leave a comment in support of "KottageKreations" and Laurie here.
