Our Story - About Us


"In our fast paced and changing world, we need symbols that are a reminder of the ongoing world of the spirit." -Laurel Burch

ABOUT LAUREL BURCH

Laurel’s story began in the 1960s when she first created stunning jewelry hammered out on the back of a cast iron pan to support herself and her baby daughter. Despite her lifelong struggle with osteopetrosis – a rare disease that caused her to suffer more than 100 bone fractures – she lived an enviable life with extraordinary joy, undiminished gratitude, and a contagious positive spirit that continues to inspire people today.

The many moving stories about giving, receiving and sharing Laurel Burch designs are a reflection not only of the woman herself, but of all the collectors, fans, and kindred spirits who are drawn by her spirit as well as her designs. Many a kitchen shelf is graced with Laurel’s delicately gilded coffee mugs. Her collectors and fans adorn themselves with Laurel’s trademark cloisonné earrings, wear shirts emblazoned with her mythical animals, tote treasures in silkscreened bags, and wholeheartedly embrace her magical designs that communicate in the universal language Laurel speaks fluently – the language of the heart.

Laurel’s stream of ideas, her fantastic mythological creatures, her imagination that never stopped, the wonders she created in her paintings, jewelry, and writings – are now part of her legacy!

WHO WE ARE TODAY

Hello, I’m Laurel Burch’s daughter Aarin – thank you for your interest in our story! Laurel Burch Studios is a San Francisco Bay Area-based company with a mission to preserve the essence of my mother’s original artworks and inspirational spirit. When I launched the company in 2012, one of our principle aims was to grow the beautiful spirt of my mother’s art and designs in exciting new directions.

 

 Laurel created beautifully timeless jewelry and artwork, and there are countless approaches to bringing her designs to life. We achieve this through creating and offering our own Laurel Burch Jewelry collections and by collaborating with some of the best manufacturers to produce a wide range of exuberantly designed apparel, accessories, home goods, and crafts created with meaning and love for fans, collectors, and kindred spirits to cherish and share across North America.
