Lauren Milmine Designs was born out of my passion for jewelry, something I remember being drawn to creatively when I was just a little girl. The daughter of an accomplished interior designer in Atlanta, I inherited a natural proclivity for expressing myself artistically. Some of my earliest childhood memories involve playing in my mother’s jewelry box and designing jewelry that combined the sparkly things I found there with the textiles and embellishments from my mother’s office.
After joyfully welcoming triplets in 2012, I was unable to return to my day job and found that I needed a creative outlet to express myself. So I threw myself into my passion, using every free moment to teach myself the intricacies of jewelry design. After honing my skill, I threw caution to the wind and launched Lauren Milmine Designs in 2015.
I view jewelry as wearable art and a medium for each woman to express her own unique style or point of view. My line is inspired by the interior design environment in which I was raised, my southern roots, world travels, the beauty of my coastal surroundings, and my need for effortless style in my daily life as a mom of triplets. My jewelry aspires to be both romantic and edgy, timeless and modern, subtle and loud.
My line consists of distinctive one- or two-of-a kind pieces that may be worn individually or layered to project a subtle or bold statement while providing the finishing touch for an outfit. I personally handcraft each piece of jewelry using authentic materials of the highest quality to ensure its longevity. I love exploring new design techniques that can transform the vintage and organic elements I incorporate into my collection.
I operate my small, growing business from Savannah, Georgia where I reside with my husband, triplets and English Springer Spaniel, Greta.
