An Heirloom Diamond Ring, Upcycled into a Modern Setting
“My grandmother Renee, whom we all called, ‘Beautiful’, gave me this diamond when I got engaged 19 years ago. After wearing it for almost 20 years, it needed an upswing. What Lainey did is awesome! The addition of the trapezoid diamonds in the new handmade setting have created a masterpiece. This special ring celebrates generations of happy marriages.”

Bennett’s Redesigned Jewelry Wardrobe
Bennett came to me with an ambitious pile of items she wanted to RE-design. We began by harvesting diamonds from an inherited platinum watch that she wanted to melt down. These diamonds were given new life in personal jewelry worth preserving, and in new items designed especially for her.
We met over many months to make the best use of existing jewelry and to offset fabrication costs using her gold melt credit. Bennett now has a refreshed and sparkling collection to enjoy wearing for years to come and to pass down to her loved ones.
“What fun! Working with Lainey is a win-win situation.”

The Earth Is My Inspiration and My Teacher; She Is Also My Responsibility.
I purchase consciously mined stones and recycle old jewelry whenever possible. I bring Her lessons to my designs and this bares the soul of my jewelry. Each piece is unique, crafted by hand, with the aid of sophisticated technology. Fluid lines and attention to detail are in service to the creation of jewelry which is comfortable on the body it was made for, and the ones who will enjoy it for generations to come.
