Welcome to Laurie LaBar from Spirit House Jewelry. Art has been a part of Laurie LaBar's life since she was a little girl. Her life also included science and history, and a family whose travels brought her all around the world. She became an archaeologist, but never stopped creating. When a 'soft money' job ended in 1992, she joined her brother and sister-in-law's jewelry business, and later struck out on her own.
Over time, Laurie returned to archaeology, then attended grad school at Winterthur. Mild mannered museum curator by day and torch-wielding silversmith by night, Laurie shapes her jewelry to reflect her love of nature, her interest in the healing power of gemstones, as well as her desire to create.
