And just who am I anyway?

Hi, I'm Laura, but you can call me Lala.

My passion for bead work leads back to my grandmother and her love of beads and pearls. The colors, the variety, and even the movement and sound of beads clinking together around her neck as she moved, inspired me from a young age. I spent my career as a graphic designer (steeped in the world of color and aesthetics) but jewelry and colored gemstone beads continued to be my passion—so much so that I earned a graduate gemologist degree from the Gemological Institute of America.


Guaranteed quality.

Minerals of the earth, gemstones come in a variety of shapes, sizes, grades, treatments and are sourced from all over the world. Sorting through the gemstones and selecting the right ones can be a complex process. Trained by The Gemological Institute of America you can trust all Necklace Studio products are sourced, designed and crafted with integrity.

"I am so enamored with this necklace!! You can dress it up or down and the craftsmanship is phenomenal! I can tell this necklace will be in my collection for many years."

"I love my new Rainbow Gemstone necklace. It is my new Go To color piece. The faceted beads reflect the light in such a pretty sparkly way. The gem beads are all high quality stones and the necklace is well constructed!"

This is the most beautiful necklace I have ever received! The gemstones are gorgeous and the whole piece is strung beautifully. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a beautiful addition to your jewelry box, or someone else’s.
