HUSBAND & WIFE TEAM
Laurette O’Neil and Zygmunt met in Tucson, AZ.
Twenty years ago Laurette moved to Poland where Zygmunt was a successful jewelry designer for over twenty five years. He graduated with a Masters Degree in Fine Arts at the University of Warsaw.
Laurette is a constant apprentice studying her craft throughout the world. The Southwest gave her the ability to handle gems and minerals while Alaska showed her how to work with fossilized walrus and explored native arts. Berlin taught her how to handle silver and 18-carat gold.
In Stockholm she gained skills in titanium. The necessities of good design were introduced in Poland.
Now both live in Las Vegas, NV and continuing to create innovative, handmade jewelry. They run their business, “Laurette O’Neil Jewelry”. Her main objective is to keep the design simple and clean.
“My work draws people in because of its pure and idyllic spirit”.
“I am proud to say that all the pieces are designed and made in the United States.”
We create each tool to craft our jewelry. In our workshop, we mold, cut, oxidize, polish, and perfect the designs by hand. We use material such as sterling silver, gemstones, minerals, saltwater pearls, 18k gold, and titanium.
Base metal of our work is nickel free Sterling Silver
Pearls are farm raised and high quality
We design and create all components of our work i.e. clasps tubes cones discs
Coral is farm raised purchased from a family owned company. We keep the natural shapes.
Black jade comes from Arizona.
For the last fifteen years, we have worked with the same geologist in creating shapes and finishes.
