We met Laurie Rosenwald about 10 years ago via our friend James over Manhattans at Prune in NYC. Shev and Laurie shared a cab home from dinner, and we’ve been in touch ever since. We are thrilled that Laurie is debuting her latest creation, “Melty Jewels,” at Placewares. Made in her studios in NYC and Gothenburg, Sweden, these bold and whimsical objects take Laurie’s widely celebrated graphic work into three dimensions.
This piece features a small blue glass pendant with a natural rope string cord.
Material: Glass, Cotton Yarn
Dimensions: 1" x .5" Glass Pendant, 12" Cord
