I have a passion for jewelry for years. I usually buy online creative and elegant designs trying to build a unique collection on my own. I have to say that Laura Busoni designs really impressed me. She creates beautiful necklaces, collars, bracelets… out of copper and I can only say two words: 1. A 2. Mazing.
She talks about her own experience: “For the past 10 years, I’ve been trying out as many different creative outlets as possible. I’ve amassed a pretty random skill set, from costume design, fashion illustration, model making, welding, and personal styling. Along with those, I’ve cultivated a love for junk shops, medical curiosities, and taxidermy. It seemed kind of impossible to choose just one those things to focus on, so I began hand crafting a line of innovative jewelry, which has allowed me to combine most of those random skills in a pretty satisfying way.
In the past year, LAB by Laura Busony has been featured in People Style Watch, Fashionista.com, Lucky Magazine, BUST magazine, Mayhem Mag, base Magazine and British Vogue. LAB has also been named one of the 5 best Etsy shops on Styleite.com.
As always, all LAB pieces are 100% handcrafted from conception to completion in our Brooklyn studio”
I must say: Her success is a combination between nice designs and hard work. My top three designs are these ones:
Metal Peter Pan.- It’s made from a sheet of steel, cut, brushed and finished by hand. A vintage sterling silver chain hangs in the center. Thousands of faux pearls and rhinestones decorate each of the color halves. A vintage sterling sliver chain holds the halves together and can adjust anywhere from 16 to 25 inches long so it can be worn as tightly or loosely as desired. Lightweight, but incredibly durable.

The Susan Collar.- Dried flowers against copper add the perfect springtime accessory to any sundress or even a t-shirt and jeans.
Named after my mom, who always had an effortless green thumb (that was definitely never passed down to me!) I’ve made The Susan Collar with real pressed, dried Blue Boys, Pansies and Fern.
These pressed baby blue eyes, verbena flowers and dried fern are preserved in waterproof, protective resin. More info: http://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/100043716/collar-necklace-with-blue-dried-flowers?ref=shop_home_active
The Andy Collar.- The Andy Collar is created from 22 gauge copper that has been cut, hammered and finished to a beautiful high shine entirely by hand. Dozens of pink aluminum roses have been placed towards the edge of the collar for a pop of color and adornment.
The collar is modeled to lay perfectly around the curve of the neck and chest, so it is very very comfortable, and very lightweight. The collar is also malleable enough to allow the wearer to gently shape the collar to fit their own neckline more perfectly, if desired.More info: http://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/97537968/the-andy-collar-copper-peter-pan-collar?ref=v1_other_1
