We sat down and spoke with NY Jewelry Designer Lauren Laruicci
Tell us about yourself where your from your background and where your based now:
I’m originally from Detroit, Michigan but after studying in Italy the call of New York City was too loud to ignore so I came here to work and start my own line. I was an assistant for Patti Wilson - which has obviously been a major influence ever since!
Tell us about your beautiful work:
Laruicci is the culmination of my lifelong love of embellishment passed on to me from the incredible women in my life, specifically my grandmother. I work with my incredible team of artists and industry professionals to keep our dream of individual expression alive.
Can you share your creative process and philosophy:
I want for my designs to speak to the gut of you and make you feel invincible. I describe the studio process as being a spaceship joyride traveling through time and creative space stopping to absorb the millions of inspirations along the way. Laruicci references punk culture and iconography as a nod to our refusal to conform. I know statement jewelry isn’t for everyone but come on, live a little!
Where do you get your inspiration from:
Everywhere, honestly! I love strong and individual people like Dolly Parton & David Bowie. I listen to music pretty much as log as i’m conscious and that’s always a well of inspiration. Counter-cultural movements, night life celebrity, the wild and free outlaw - these are all equally Laruicci to me.
