Hailing from Annapolis Maryland, Laura Moore of Laura Moore Designs finds inspiration in the water that surrounds her. Recently, Farmers Market Finds caught up with Laura to talk about her amazing collection of jewelry and embellished glass.
Like many of our vendors, Laura Moore Designs came to fruition through hard work, the support of friends and family, and a little luck. Laura, a self-taught artist, spent her early design years making gifts for her family. Having a successful career in sales and marketing, jewelry making was more of a part-time passion then a full-time career. But that all changed about 10 years ago when the demand for her jewelry from friends and family inspired her to leave the 9-5 behind and work on jewelry design full-time.
Most of Laura Moore’s Designs are water or nautical inspired. Living in Annapolis and traveling to Key West often, Laura is constantly reminded of the natural beauty held within the sea waters. It is this beauty that inspires many of her pieces, including the beautiful Triple Strand Mermaid Necklace above and its sister necklace, the single strand mermaid. In addition to nautical inspired pieces, Laura does beautiful work using Swavorski Crystals and gemstones. Laura’s hand crafted pieces exude an elegance and beauty that comes from careful handcrafting.
In addition to her exquisite jewelry, Laura has branched out into the home decor arena with beautiful designs of wire wrapped glass. From salad utensils to wine glasses, Laura takes the everyday and makes it unique!
