Designer of the Month
The story of Lara Jewelry is as delightfully surprising as the beautiful details of its pieces, rich in unexpected twists and turns, and bursting with inspiration.
Established in 2013, Lara Jewelry is an interactive, process-oriented brand that delivers one-of-a-kind jewellery designs conceived by Lara and turned into timeless pieces by her team of artisans in Mexico and Lebanon. The jewellery is a reflection of Lara the traveling jeweler whose journey led her from the Levant all the way to a little town in Mexico where she engaged a community of craftsmen to bring her brand to life.
Here she speaks to us about her passion for the art and science of jewellery making.
How would you describe your brand?
What is your favourite material to work with?
Gold and brass or anything that's handcrafted!
Where do you get inspiration?
Mostly from people but anything that has a story to tell!
What is your design process?
Sometimes I scatter gems on my desk and sketch around them, other times I sketch and the materials come together later!
Do you have any favourite piece from your collection?
Any jewellery that has weight or substance to it. I try to incorporate this in most of my pieces!
What can we expect to see from you in future?
Expect to see more of my work in different mediums, … perhaps product design?
