A unique and beautiful collection of Laurel Inc. vintage jewelry designed by Laurel and Shashi. Our vintage Laurel Burch designs represent the first commercial works from the late artist. These 1970s pieces offered new in box in mint condition, and sold exclusively by The Museum of Jewelry in San Francisco, Ca.
Laurel inc. was a partnership between Shashi and Laurel Burch. In 1971 Laurel visited China. With Shashi's help she became one of the first American designers to import from The People’s Republic Of China.
She was introduced to artisans who specialized in cloisonné, a type of enamel that worked brilliantly with Laurel’s brightly colored patterns. Using this material and technique, she worked alongside artisans to develop a collection of handcrafted enamel jewelry made from Laurel’s paintings of animals, people, flowers and cats under the brand Laurel Inc.
Our vintage Laurel Inc. pieces represent Laurel's transformation from street artist to manufacturer, preserved in vintage unopened packaging in the Museum's collection.
