Laura De Zordo, a long term expat from America, designs and handcrafts sterling silver and copper jewellery in her Hampshire based workshop. Her main focus is setting bold pieces with American turquoise found in states such as Arizona, Nevada, Colorado and New Mexico. Each piece uses a different stone therefore no two pieces are the same. Colour is Laura's main inspiration and turquoise comes in a vast array of colours and matrix (the little lines in the stone) of turquoise. Laura also has a 'Precious Paws' collection for dog lovers who would like to display their canine affection on a piece of jewellery as well as her 'Plain and Simple' collection featuring silver and copper only.
