Laconic means to express using few or little words. This captures the true nature and power of jewellery as a way to express yourself and tell your story. Founded by designer/maker Lindsay, after spending 10 years in the commercial jewellery industry, Laconic was born from my desire to express myself creatively through the craft of Goldsmithing.
My journey to jewellery design has been instinctive; I’ve always had an enthusiasm for design and enjoyed drawing from a young age. This led me to university where I discovered the 3 Dimensional Design course, which encompassed ceramics, glass and jewellery. I felt like I’d found the perfect fit as this combined my love of drawing with my interest in design. Experimenting with the materials and bringing ideas to life —plus using my hands as the tools for creation — was such an exciting experience. It still is!
Pieces are crafted by hand in small batches, using traditional methods and responsibly sourced materials. Inspired by travel and exploring my own Scottish heritage, folklore narratives are translated into modern design-led jewellery. Each piece tells a story designed to help you express your true self.
