Lauren Anabela's Profile

About

“I feel honored thinking of the life my jewelry has once it is purchased and worn by the new owner. Where the piece goes what it has been through seems just as special as creating a piece.”

Hi there, my name is Lauren Anabela Beaudoin is an artist, metalsmith and founder of Creative Dexterity, which launched in 2007. The name reflects the ways in which my hands play a major role in my creative process, whether holding a pencil, hammer, torch or, ultimately, my finished work. In a way, creating and dexterity go “hand in hand.”

After taking my first metalsmithing class as a teen I knew this was a passion I wanted to pursue. This led to enrolling at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design where I earned a BFA in metals in 2004.

After taking my first metalsmithing class as a teen I knew this was a passion I wanted to pursue. This led to enrolling at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design where I earned a BFA in metals in 2004.

I get inspiration from just about anything and everything, especially by just observing what’s around and available to me. Most of my metalsmithing work goes through a technical process and being detail oriented, precise and formal with material itself comes natural to me. I like the challenge of problem solving, figuring out the steps to make a piece work and that’s why I am drawn to mechanical structures as well as the metalsmithing process.

My design style is a considered crisp industrial with an organic twist. My latest series include the Computer Key Jewelry, which use upcycled computer keys as a quirky commentary to contemporary culture and the Geometric Jewelry which investigate shape, color and kinetic elements.

Though my work is diverse, my enthusiasm, quirky sense of humor, care and skill are contained in every detail of my creations.

Enjoy!
