About Laura Ngyou

Jewellery as wearable Sculpture and Object

My approach to making is experimental, with a passion for intricate detail. My obsession with geology drives me to select the most interesting and unusual gemstone specimens. I compose unique settings sympathetic to a gemstone’s individual character re-imagining the natural landscape and dynamic crystalline structures from which it was discovered.

Vividly contrasting precious metals and naturally sculpted gemstones are used to create sumptuous, other-worldly qualities. 

Born into a large family who span the globe from Asia to north America, I am drawn towards discovery and exploration. I am intrigued by the ambiguity of form. Each piece I create is ultimately a product of my imagination - an abstract composition which quietly provokes the observer to look more closely, reflect on my journeys and the natural curiosities which have inspired me.
