Lauren Shaddow has been creating metal stamped jewelry since 2014. She hammers, bends, drills, sands, and polishes raw precious metals into gorgeous, one-of-a-kind memories for her clients. As someone who has never been satisfied with the quicksand of complacency, she draws inspiration for her work from a place of constant growth. Not only does she try to improve upon her own personal skill every day, but she also seeks out the challenge of infusing creativity & personality to connect each piece to its owner.
Change is the one constant in all of our lives, & Lauren has embraced it as a means of professional & personal growth. Personally, she has undertaken massive steps to carve out her own definition of a life well lived. In 2012, she took on a 3,000 mile relocation when she drove from central New Jersey to the Bay Area in northern California in search of foreign & exciting surroundings.
Professionally, she earned her living as a cosmetologist & almost as soon as she headed west, she ascended to salon manager within a well known cosmetic chain. Never one to stand still, Lauren moved from behind the chair to pursue different paths within the same industry. While successful, the transitions never fulfilled the independence & creativity that dwells inside a burgeoning entrepreneur. She would find that only by creating her own work could she create the life she was seeking.
