From Laurel, With Joy

  • Customer Stories: Meet Alexandra

    2020 has been a year for the books. We’ve lost control of many things that we didn’t expect to. But we still have control of our words and whether or not we use them for good.

    But, first: An introduction.

    Hi, I'm Laurel. I started Laurel Denise in 2005 after I had a dream where I was creating jewelry with glass and my tiny handwriting. No, seriously, a dream. I was working for the government (because I lived in Northern Virginia at the time and that's just what you do there) and was pretty desperate for a creative outlet. God gave me a whisper of hope in my sleep and has continued to guide me along in this journey. And what a journey it's been!
