Growing up between New York and the small town of San Giovanni Valdarno in Tuscany, designer Laura Lombardi can trace her history with jewelry to her parents’ sales office on 45th Street, which began with a sample case of gold chains her father brought from Italy in the 1980s.
What began as a hobby, assembling gold lockets and lariats on her kitchen table, turned into a natural extension of her artistic practice and then, into an independent business in 2010 that remains a deeply personal body of work influenced by memories from either side of the Atlantic.
She balances this raw industrial style, influenced by New York City, with classical art motifs from Italy to create jewelry that is always tied to a memory. By reimagining their materials and purpose, she brings these notions of the past into the present.
