Nicola Lauren is a jewellery brand that focuses on craftsmanship and design.
Each piece has a distinctly handmade feel, connecting the wearer to the maker.
Nicola's designs are clean, understated and unique - but timeless.
She uses ancient techniques such as hand carving and lost-wax casting, as well as traditional goldsmithing fabrication to manipulate precious metals and hand form every piece of jewellery.
It is Nicola's intention to make jewellery that will last a lifetime and for future generations.
Every piece is handmade from start to finish in Toronto, Canada.
Nicola has always had a passion for beautiful objects, and what are more beautiful materials to work with than gold and gemstones?
As a collector of handmade pieces from ceramics to rugs, she believes in the value of all things handmade - as they are truly original art.
Being a goldsmith as a profession allows Nicola to incorporate beauty and creativity into her everyday life, and working with her hands is what brings her the most joy.
Each piece of jewellery has been created by Nicola with careful attention and passion for her craft.
Nicola now makes all jewellery at Studio 342, her collective studio located in downtown Toronto.
