Making beautiful, wearable, and contemporary jewelry is what I strive for at Smith Goldsmith. Born and raised on a farm, I’m no stranger to hard work and getting my hands dirty; I love this not-so-glamorous part of making jewelry. Details matter to me- what I want in a piece is quality, sustainability and something that you can wear everyday. I choose to listen, to notice the people, culture, and nature around me, present and past, to create exceptional pieces. I use my artistic insight to understand what you want in a piece of jewelry. My style: organic, elegant (but not fussy), versatile, and simply gorgeous.
Today, I still love to take time to adventure in nature and visit the family farm, but most days you will find me behind my jewelry bench doing what I love.
I work with all precious metals and gemstones, sourcing only the finest quality. My respect for the materials with which I work, along with my inspiration from the rugged, natural beauty of the Owens Valley and the understated, yet bold style of the people who raised me drives my designs and my company. I strive to create jewelry that is both beautiful, natural for your lifestyle, and eye-catching. I have also successfully forged a niche by repurposing the forgotten and out-dated jewelry in your jewelry box and making it fun-to-wear and fabulous.
From farm to (black tie or family dinner) table, I have the ability to hand craft jewelry that both works for your lifestyle and expresses your personality.
Smith Goldsmith Beginnings
During the nine years of working for someone else as a goldsmith and bench Jeweler, Lauren Smith honed her own unique vision for a jewelry company. In 2016 Lauren found herself with an opportunity to fulfill her longtime dream and create a company that would reflect her ideas about design, sustainability and relationships. Just as her jewelry line is not defined by her, but by the human condition, Smith Goldsmith hopes to be a reflection of the people who wear it, collect it, and give it.
