Laura Elizabeth Jewelry is committed to quality, sustainability, passion, and representing the multiple dimensions of femininity.

Meet Lilith.  She aspires to leave a lasting, positive impact on the world and believes that even the smallest of gestures, even those that court a bit of controversy, can make a huge difference.

Lilith was inspired by a woman on a train.  It was January 2017 in Washington D.C.  My brother, sister, and I were leaving the Women’s March.  On the surface, this woman appeared to be a silent passenger, a grandmother, a woman in a wool coat. 

A closer look revealed a rhinestone-encrusted labia resting on her lapel- controversy repackaged in glitter and gold.  Without words, she started a conversation that echoed throughout the passenger car.  And that conversation stayed with me and my siblings as we journeyed back to Austin, Texas. 

Inspired, Lilith starts a new conversation and seeks to make a difference.
