I am Laura Teague and I have been making jewelry for about 20 years and sterling silver jewelry for 15 years. I live and work in south Louisiana, my adopted home state. (I am originally from Arkansas.)
I have always enjoyed making things with my hands and discovering new crafts (thanks, mom!). After a long career in speech pathology, it was time to move on.
Did I mention that I LOVE jewelry? Well, yes, I do (and always have - especially the shiny costume jewelry I discovered in my mother's and grandmother's jewelry boxes).
I started with an obsession with beads (which I still love) and that morphed into an interest in sterling silver wire and the possibilities of working with wire to make sterling silver jewelry - so here we are!
So you know I love jewelry (and making jewelry, obviously); I also love cats. LOVE. I currently live with one inside and two outside cats. I could go on about cats but you get the drift.
I have two grown sons, both of whom live on the west coast and I love traveling to see them!
