for the Body
Her goal: to make well-crafted jewelry accessible to everyone.
Laura Wood is currently resident artist at Penland School of Craft, near Spruce Pine, North Carolina. Her jewelry is fascinating, fluid and great fun to wear. And she plans it that way. “My interest in body as site began with self-expression through dance and performative arts,” she shares on her website. “The human form, as a result, offers continual inspiration in how I create jewelry.”
The creative world has taken notice. Her work can be found in galleries across the U.S., and in the permanent collections of the Gregg Museum of Art at North Carolina State University and The Racine Art Museum in Racine, Wisconsin.
Ms. Wood is the co-founder of Jewelry Edition, a creative project which facilitates the growth of jewelry artists. She earned a BFA from the University of Georgia and an MFA in metal design from East Carolina University.
