Laura has always been passionate about art, travel, and the world’s cultures. She has enjoyed visiting over 30 countries. After earning a degree in art history she settled in Nepal for seven years beginning in 1996. She stayed in Nepal because she loved the people and beauty of this wonderful country. It was then that she grew to enjoy clothing and accessory design. She discovered the Nepali womens’ crocheted bracelets and decided to devote her energy to helping her women friends make them something truly special. In Laura’s words “Each bracelet is a little piece of artwork.” Their women artists are passionate about making the LILY and LAURA® bracelets they crochet very special.
