Hi, I'm Laura.
A magic makin’ artist who tends to fall somewhere between a spirited silversmith and a self-care advocate.
In 2003 my handsome husband and I moved our family to Casper, Wyoming to dwell in the spirit of the last frontier. It took me a while to find my roots in the West. However, raising my two kiddos and the awakening, local art scene finally brought me home. It’s almost as though the moment I dared to commit to the mountains of Wyoming, they dared to commit to me.
Everything from my family and community to my relentless intuition pushed me to start dreaming bigger. So I did.
& that’s how Pure Impressions Design came to be.
In 2012 the company started as just that; a dream. Yet, it didn’t take long before the brand became so much more. After building a loyal community and sparking sales too fast to keep up with, I left my comfortable, full-time job of ten years to pursue Pure Impressions wholeheartedly.
Here we are (a decade later), and I couldn’t be more confident that this is right where I’m supposed to be.
You see, designing handmade jewelry to tell a story moves me. There is something about fusing the earth’s elements to cultivate belonging in others that gives me a greater purpose. Over the years, I’ve found that this work is less about my craft and more about reflecting good people back to themselves through empowered artifacts.
Yet, jewelry is just our medium. We identify as a non-traditional wellness brand with a silver addiction. Because more than inspiring your unapologetic self-expression or embodying your cherished collection of adventures, we want to foster a community where you feel seen.
Let’s spark moments of magic and re-envision the unstoppable.
When I’m not working with my hands, you can find me: spending time with my family & besties, with my Funky Junk Art Collective crew, advocating for advancing accessible arts in Wyoming, reading a good book, pretending I’m a mermaid, popping up at your local art walk, reveling in the wilds of Wyoming and saying “no” to my beloved Boston Terrier, Luna.
