Laura Wood

"I make and design sculptural jewelry that is both bold and body-conscious. It is made to be worn and is a celebration of contemporary adornment. "

Laura Wood began her career in the arts studying dance. This led her to making adornments for the body: activating pleasure and enjoyment through wearing. Material exploration and pattern making are key in her visual language as she develops work alongside new technology and processes. She strives to enhance the silhouette of the body with bold, sculptural forms.

Wood's jewelry is made from brass that is cut, formed, powder coated, and occasionally embellished with precious stones and sterling silver. Many earring styles are made with a left and a right in an attempt to fit the form to the face. Kinetic elements also create movement while remaining thoughtful to wearability.

Wood earned a BFA in jewelry and metalsmithing from the University of Georgia and an MFA in metal design at East Carolina University. She has also studied at Penland School of Crafts, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts for continued research in jewelry techniques.
