Hello! I’m Laura K. Aiken and I am a unique self-taught artist whose unmistakable work has created a niche all my own. I was born and raised in South Carolina. After marrying my husband in 1988 and traveling as an Air Force spouse and the mother of a son, I finally settled down to a small studio in Greenville, SC. My experiences from living in Europe, Georgia, and Southern Mississippi have been a huge influence on my jewelry designs, mosaic, and whimsical paintings. I bring one-of-a-kind feminine treasures to life through my eclectic and artistic choice of carefully selected materials, shapes, colors, metals and textures. My current designs blend Swarovski crystals, beads, and glass with assorted silver, copper, and gemstones to create beautiful mosaic pendants. Watercolor, oil, and acrylic make up the basis for my library of whimsical paintings where you can usually find our cat—GrayC—incorporated in my designs.
