About modernbird

Sales 2,928
On Etsy since 2007

hello !

Laura Flavin :: Designer & Metslsmith

I create modern jewelry infused with sentiment and soul. For many years I expressed my creativity collecting, displaying and selling mid-century modern treasures at my vintage shop Decades Ago-Go in Ybor City, Florida.
During that time I developed a love for modernist and contemporary silver jewelry. In 2003, I discovered the art of metalsmithing & took my first class. It has been a wonderful journey learning to work with my hands to create what is in my mind. I have taken my love for designing and making and applied it to my jewelry line called Modernbird. My mission is to create jewelry that brings the wearer comfort and reflects a part of their soul.... connectedness, love, dreams, joyfulness and being a part of nature.
Using traditional metalsmithing techniques like sawing, forming, forging, filing, soldering, adding texture and patina, I create modern jewelry infused with meaning.

Currently I have my studio at the ArtsXchange in the Warehouse Arts District of St. Petersburg, Florida. There are 25 artists working together in this amazing revamped warehouse space. Send me a note, I would love for you to visit! Every Second Saturday I participate in Artwalk, it’s a great night out - stop by and say hello.
515 22nd Street South :: Studio 117

I am focusing on one of a kind pieces along with my old favorites.

My jewelry is also available here ::

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

♥Care Instructions

Most of my jewelry is oxidized sterling silver with a brushed, sanded, matte finish. To keep this patina over the long haul you can use fine steel wool or 600 grit sandpaper to "scrub it" or clean it. You can also use a polishing cloth to shine it up a bit as it naturally tarnishes (I recommend "Sunshine" brand). For long term storage, wash it with a little bit of dish soap and a soft toothbrush (to get rid of any oil from your skin) and put it in a sealed plastic baggie.
