As a self taught artist and entrepreneur, I am constantly drawing inspiration from the world around me. I have always been fascinated with the beauty in nature and with trees in particular. One of my oldest memories is of learning that a tree's roots can spread as far underground as their branches do into the sky. The symbol of the tree encourages both strength and flexibility and was the foundation for my first successful business endeavor. I spent many years teaching jewelry design classes at a local bead store, and now I love facilitating Tree of Life workshops in my home. Each person creates their own unique Tree pendant, while I guide you through the process.

My husband and I had so much fun making these pendants! Laura was really patient and helped us to create something that we were both very proud of. 100% would recommend this to everyone that is coming to Portland!

I loved my time with Laura. She was personable and encouraging and made me feel like I was doing something special. She gave me tips so I could make trees on my own if I wanted. We had a lovely conversation as we worked and I felt so comfortable and supported. I love the tree I made and will definitely try to make another one on my own. I would 100% recommend this experience.

If you enjoy crafting and fancy making yourself an exceptional and unique piece of jewellery then don’t miss this! Laura is a friendly and relaxed teacher, with tea on hand, who will guide you step by step through the pendant making process. The hardest thing is choosing what stones and metal to work with. Location easily reachable by uber and there’s some interesting shops not too far away, including the Nike Outlet.

Imagine a little magical island in which even someone with no jewelry making experience could make a beautiful project, with nothing but pure support and calm. This is the tree of life making experience. Laura’s years of experience teaching beading classes was evident in her calm demeanor and empowering teaching style. Having to remake one part was matter of fact, with no shaming involved for lack of skill. Laura shares genuine curiosity about people in general and has lots of information about this work in general. She easily will flow with what you want: styles, stones, and helping you as much or as little as you like. I would definitely recommend this and could see it also being very fun in a group!
