Born in a French family of jewelers with eastern and scandinavian influences, Laura Essayie had the chance to experience the beauty of the jewelry craft at a young age, by observing her uncle, and later her cousin, sculpting silver with intelligence and simplicity. She chose to experiment the art of jewelry through sculpture by attending and graduating from a degree in Sculpture applied to Metal in Paris, at the National Art School ENSAAMA Olivier de Serres. And in order to broaden her imagination, she then assisted artists, designers and jewelers with very distincts universes such as Ralph Bakker, Eloïse Fiorentino, Ximena Alarcon Cavrois, Philip Sajet, Guillaume Airiaud and Michal Avraham, giving her the desire to develop her own collection.
Laura Essayie is currently developing an evolving collection of jewels with the line as a starting point. Each jewel is conceived as a small sculpture to wear. In silver, gold plated brass, or gold. She designs and make all the pieces from the collection in her workshop, with traditional tools. Working in complete freedom, she proposes a collection that doesn’t follow the rythm of fashion but focus on creating high quality jewels with a strong design that make them timeless.
Her workshop is traveling with her between Paris, The Netherlands and Italy.
