Laura Glen is a creative jewelry maker whose love of nature’s graceful beauty is expressed through the art of sculpting precious metals into unique pieces of jewelry. Her goals as a fine craft artist are clear when she says, “I want the people who wear my jewelry to feel a connection to the jewelry and know the piece was handmade with love and care. I believe this sense of connectivity is achieved through the synergy of seeking balance and harmony between metal and stone in a fluid, organic style.” Her pieces give the wearer an opportunity to express their own individual style and taste.
Through Laura Glen’s travels with her husband, a renowned wildlife artist, she finds fresh inspiration for her pieces from the natural world. From the breathtaking mountains and canyons of the Americas to the remote sprawling African jungles, the lines and colors of nature provide an endless source of creative possibilities. “Inspiration for many of my designs comes from watching nature…the trailing tendrils and growth of wild vines, the curves of clouds, and the curl of water around a canoe paddle” says the designer. “I want to create interesting pieces of jewelry expressing the flowing rhythms of life. ” Laura Glen’s jewelry expresses an element of timeless grace.
Laura Glen travels a multi-state area participating in various shows and festivals and has won many awards. Her work is found in a selected number of galleries and shops. She has been interviewed by Louisiana Public Radio and has been featured in several newspapers and magazines including Louisiana Life magazine. She is a member of the Craftsmen’s Guild of Mississippi, North Central Louisiana Arts Council, and the Louisiana Craft Guild.
