Your talent can only be described as AWESOME!!!
Capturing the Beauty of Nature, and Wearing It!
One fine summer day I was driving north from Baltimore to my sister's house. The trees are abundant and beautiful out there, and the late afternoon sunlight was filtering through the leaves. I began thinking about how I could incorporate that beauty into the jewelry I make. Suddenly it came to me… To capture the beauty of nature, unharmed, through photography. So my journey began, combining my nature photographs with my passion for gemstones and jewelry.
I preserve my nature photographs in resin on used Scrabble game tiles or unfinished wooden disks. The photo tiles then become jewelry or an expanding list of items. To me, the technique becomes art when I start incorporating colors and textures of gemstones and other elements with the photo tiles.
Laura Mac Jewelry & Accessories is all about making unique jewelry inspired by nature. Are you a rose…romantic and classic? Is your best friend a butterfly… constantly flitting from one activity to the next? Is your daughter a rainbow…full of bright colors and promise? Is your husband a maple tree…solid and strong but syrupy sweet inside? I want to help you find that little piece of nature that inspires you.

Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
Hello! I am a maker, photographer, hippie and geek. I love colors, gemstones, trees, faeries, card/board games, good food, and my family.
All my pieces are handcrafted and made with love.
Please remember, I use all sterling silver in my jewelry and this can get tarnished if it is left out in the air. I recommend keeping it in a plastic bag or silver-cloth lined jewelry box when you aren't wearing it.
The more often you wear your silver the shinier it will stay. The oils in our skin are anti-tarnishy.
If you must clean your silver I'd recommend something mild and natural, pearls and some gemstones don't play well with harsh chemicals. A silver polishing cloth is a great investment for your silver jewelry.
