Announcement   I have been creating one of a kind art jewelry for 25 years. These designs are a celebration of nature and the female form. I use my experience as a portrait painter and sculptor to create figures in porcelain. I combined the finished miniatures with torch fired enamels, gemstones and other materials in mixed precious metals.

Because of the nature of my work, I wind up with a great deal of scrap metal. I have designed a second line of jewelry recycling this scrap in unusual designs.

My work is sold through select galleries and art shows nationally. To find out more about the genesis of Laura Stamper Designs, and learn about upcoming events, visit my website

I have had many requests for making artisan supplies. Well, I heard you! Visit my new shop on etsy

About

If you were a piece of jewelry, what would you be?

I create one of a kind wearable sculptures that celebrate nature, women and story. My art background is portrait painting and when I approach making a new piece, I think in terms of color, composition, story ,negative space and balance. My style is strongly influenced by the Art Nouveau period of painting.

I start each piece by crafting original sculptures in porcelain. The finished porcelain pieces are then fired many times at different temperatures by layering the glazes.
This creates depth and a translucent appearance. I set the finished miniature in mixed precious metals (sterling silver,fine silver and high karat gold) utilizing fabrication techniques. Many of the miniature sculptures include precious and semi-precious stones. I tend to favor rough stones as they lend an organic feel to my pieces, but I cannot resist the sparkle of colored sapphires.

I hope that my work embodies the strength, beauty and mystique of the female narrative.

The most common question I get is, "how can you part with them?". Not everyone understands my work, but those who do seem to find their "twin" in Laura Stamper Designs. It is for this reason, I am sure each piece goes to it's rightful home.

My jewelry is sold at juried art shows across the nation, through select galleries and through the fine crafts catalog, Uno Alla Volta.

Shop policies

Last updated on November 23, 2014
I have been designing and creating figurative 'wearable sculpture' jewelry for over 20 years, I have recently added a line of rings crafted from precious metals, gem stones and resin. These pieces are made with the urban goddess in mind. Most of the pieces are one of a kind, some can be sized. I tell my collectors that I have 3 questions they should ask themselves before buying.
1. Do I love it?
2. Would I wear it?
3. If I come back to Laura's shop and it's gone, will I regret that it isn't mine?
If you answer "yes" to all 3 questions, you have found your reflection in art to wear.
