Laura George's Profile

About

I'm Laura, the artist behind 604 Jewelry. I offer handmade, one of a kind pieces. The name "604" comes from where this business began, in my first apartment - #604. Allow me to tell you a little bit about myself. Feel free to ask questions!

I've been creative for longer than I can remember. As a child, my parents thought I wanted to be a scientist because I loved mixing different household items in cups like a chemist. I just loved the creativity of it, apparently!
Throughout my years, I have been a dancer, singer, writer, poet, sculptor, jeweler, silversmith, printmaker, digital artist, multimedia artist, and art enthusiast. I recently received my BA in Studio Art from Wake Forest University and am incredibly proud of the accomplishment.

But I'm not sure where to go from here. Where do I take this zest for creativity? I tried a traditional entry-level job and was immediately disenchanted by the working world. That type of work? Not for me. Where is the spirit, the creativity, the passion? I want to be doing things that fill my soul. So I am working when I have to so I can pay the bills - and spending the rest of my time with my art and the people who matter most to me.

As far as location is concerned, I hail from the lowcountry in South Carolina, but I've recently taken up residence in Raleigh, North Carolina. I've lived in the South my whole life and never want to leave! I also lived in Winston-Salem, NC for five years and spent four months living and studying in Venice, Italy... so both places feel like home to me too. I hope the voices of my experiences and my homes reveal themselves as you look around at my jewels.

I plan on expanding 604 quickly to include this shop for jewelry, a shop for my hand-pulled prints, and one for my sculpture and odds and ends. Please send me a convo if you have any questions at all! I'd love to create something special just for you and to get to know you personally.
