A personal note to those of you who have supported me over the years:: WEST + LAUREL is a rebrand for Katherine Smith Jewelry after some major changes in my life. It was time to EMBRACE THE JOURNEY of growth and perseverance I have been on for the last 4 years. The name WEST + LAUREL is a combination of tributes, both to my roots (West is my maiden name), and to my new direction in life (laurel wreaths are a symbol of victory). EMBRACE the ride friends, we only live this life once.
Back to the BUSINESS:: West + Laurel wares are comprised of 14K gold-fill chain, wire wrapped semi-precious gemstones, and as many gold findings as you can shake a stick at. I am inspired to make jewelry for all women and I love hearing stories associated with my creations.
Every piece is made with love in my home studio just outside of Atlanta.
