Hi! I'm Laura; the owner and heart and soul over here at Pure Impressions Design.
I'm a mom to 2 amazing kiddos and two crazy furbabies.
I'm a wife to my best friend and soul mate.
I'm a Capricorn, an Earth Element & my enneagram is a 6.
I love to read, drink coffee and collect coffee mugs for said coffee.
I love spending time with my family & friends & I love sunshine.
I care too deep and I love too much. It often leaves me a little heartbroken. I listen to just about every genre of music depending on my mood. I read silly YA novels and I cry when I watch sad commercials.
I love creating and I love inspiring others to do amazing things.
I also make handmade jewelry that inspires women to live their best life.
Jewelry should be an extension of your personality.
It should talk about who we are.
I think a lot of times, when we're shopping for jewelry, we're looking to find something that turns us into someone else. The earrings that so and so wore, the necklace that the latest celebrity was just seen wearing. We think we're not good enough. We think we need to be something different than who we are. Why do we do this to ourselves?
I've been there friend. Everywhere we look we're being told we're not good enough. Eat this, wear that, look like her, talk like this, act like that.
Fit in. It's A LOT, right? I know I can't be the only one that finally said STOP.
I'm trying to do things a little different lately and love myself for who I am and who I want to be. I believe that jewelry should reflect who we are, not something that others think we should be.
I started this company on a whim. When I told my husband I wanted to start selling my jewelry his response was 'just don't spend too much money doing it'. Things were tight back then.What started off as a way to make a little extra money turned into so much more. I don't know how many times people have said to me how they wish they could do the same. "YOU CAN!", I tell them. But for some dang reason, they don't believe it. This YOU ARE NOT ENOUGH seems to be hardwired into us. I'm here to prove you wrong.
You ARE enough. You can chase your dreams. You can do whatever the heck you want to do, if you'll just have a little faith in yourself. I quit a full time job of 10+ years to start this company...and it's changed our lives.
I built Pure Impressions Design from the ground up in my basement.I started selling random pieces of jewelry on Etsy in 2011, and just recently hit 40,000 sales in my main shop there.
Trust me when I tell you, that whatever your dream is? It's not too big.
You've just got to figure out how you're going to get there.
And if you haven't found something that sets your dang soul on fire like I have here? PLEASE start searching for it.
I'm building more than just jewelry over here.
I'm trying to build how we SHOW UP IN THIS WORLD.
I'm so glad we found you!
Come on in and have a seat!
