Lauren brings her knowledge of a variety of media into her jewelry. The unique beads and other components in her designs have been hand-picked and collected over the years, making each one of her pieces one-of-a-kind. Her unique jewelry can be found in boutiques along the Jersey Shore, Cape Cod, and in Charleston, South Carolina. She encourages custom orders and loves being commissioned for extra special pieces.
