LAÔMA ATELIER is a creative studio that was founded in Summer 2021 by sisters Laura and Martine Feiereisen combining their love for jewelry, design and photography. Together, they thoughtfully design and handcraft sculptural jewelry and body adornments in small batches in their Luxembourg based atelier, which allows them to have a responsible production. Creating well- balanced objects that connect and move with the body made out of precious metals. Crafted from durable and responsibly-sourced materials, they aim to create wearable sculptures to last beyond seasons. The pieces are made-to-order to avoid overproduction, so they can keep their environmental impact to a minimum. LAÔMA is built on kindness and consciousness. Their deep love of all animals and the respect that every being is rightfully deserving of lead them to design vegan leather accessories.
Growing up in a small country, always having been surrounded by nature but living in different cities like Berlin, Melbourne, Paris and New York over the years, they draw their inspiration from the pulse of big cities, contemporary art and architecture as well as landscapes and phenomenon in nature. After studying Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing in Paris, they took Metal and Jewelry
Arts classes at Pratt Institute in New York while working in a studio in Brooklyn to create their first pieces for LAÔMA. Designed with wearability in mind, their collections comprise of reimagined classics combined with statement pieces. The manual process of making jewelry is meditative for them. Like the practice of yoga, it is an endless process of self-experimentation, learning, dedication and repeating. Fascinated by the interplay between soft - hard, liquid - solid and wax - metal, they explore materiality and find poetry in form.
