About Us

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.
