The August LWD meeting was hosted by Laura Prieto-Velasco, Founder and Designer of HVNTER GVTHERER Laura founded her line in 2011 to adorn the urban nomad with limited edition designs that pair ancient ideas with elegant minimalism. Making each piece by hand in her Chicago studio, Laura challenges wearers to think about jewelry and sacred objects as a platform for exploring history and practicing conscious living, rather than a reflection of passing trends.
Laura has degrees in Metalworking and Design from Tyler School of Art and San Diego State, and currently teaches at the School of the Art Institute.
During the meeting, Laura spoke to the group about her process, how she established her practice, and how she creates a unique experience for her clients.
