ABOUT LAURA JAKLITSCH JEWELRY

With an appreciation for modern design and a dedication to craftsmanship, Laura Jaklitsch fabricates each piece by hand in her Somerville, MA studio. Using her signature inlay technique, Laura experiments with material, color, and form to make jewelry that is fresh, contemporary, and bold. She lets the process direct the work, while making deliberate color and composition choices. Laura uses recycled metals and repurposed wood wherever possible to maximize sustainability.

Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Laura holds a BFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She is the 2016 recipient of the Society for Contemporary Craft’s LEAP Award. 

 

SUSTAINABILITY

Laura Jaklitsch Jewelry uses recycled metals as well as sustainably sourced woods from local woodworkers’ cutoffs or vendors with responsible forestry policies.
