lauren-and-gracia-headshot-1.jpgLauren & Gracia bring a powerful yet feminine mastery to the innovative integration of leather and sterling. Their work conveys a rare artistic expression that is at once raw and refined, contemporary and definitively classic. Building on their friendship of over a decade, the design duo calls upon both their artistic lineages (Lauren’s mother is an artist who has shown at Gracia’s mother's gallery) and individual inspiration to create their handcrafted pieces in their Northern California studio.  The allure of ancient sculptural forms and the subtle textures of surfaces in the natural world influence their work. Bringing consciousness to their creativity, Lauren and Gracia use natural dyed leathers and sterling silver bought in the US as well as recycled silver in their local casting process. Visible Interest loves the collection’s ability to convey the ancient while still being cutting edge modern.
