Born and raised in Toronto, Laurie Fleming studied visual design at the city’s very cool Ontario College of Art and Design—but it was a lifetime fascination with mystical stories and fantasy that led her to make delicate, ethereal fine jewelry during her student days. A fortuitous stop into a shop selling gems sparked Laurie’s interest in creating pieces that look as if they came from another world, and she began spending her free time learning how to goldsmith and set stones (shout-out to internet forums!).

In 2014, she started selling her Tolkein-worthy wonders, putting everything she earned back into her budding business and developing unique techniques like hand-carving mother of pearl for a faceted effect along the way. Now, running a Queen Street West studio for her ethically sourced namesake line, Laurie gives as much attention to those special little details as to the bigger story she’s telling. “It kind of creates its own mythology,” she says. “I really like how in movies and books, authors are able to world-build—understanding all the elements you’re using and where they come from and then creating your own thing with that.” Sounds pretty epic.
