The history of Laurel Burch jewelry trademark began in 1976 founded by a talented designer Laurel Burch (1945 – 2007).
Aged 14 she had to leave her native town in California and move to San Francisco. Already six years later, left by her husband, with two children in her arms, she had to survive. That’s how she began to make jewelry and sell it on the streets of the city. People appreciated her beautifully handcrafted pieces and happily bought them. Thus, the phenomenon of self-taught designer started. According to Laurel, “in our rapidly changing world, we must have something that reminds us of our souls.”
Traditionally, her works combine different cultures, and cosmic connection with earthly things. Even with severe pains, when she could not rise from the bed, she continued to create beauty.
Laurel died due to a complication of her illness in 2007.
Noteworthy, most of her original works are made in the Cloisonne enamel technique, which she studied in China. In addition, creating jewelry, she applied gilding and labeled them with her name – Laurel Burch.
