The Jewelry of Laurie Hall

By (author) Susan Cummins
By (author) Damian Skinner


  • The first monograph on acclaimed Pacific Northwest jewelry artist Laurie Hall
  • Includes work from the 1970s to the present
Full Description

For more than four decades, jewelry artist and educator Laurie Hall has been making stories the subject of her work. Her playful, often whimsical jewelry made with found objects is about the places she lives, the landscapes that fill her imagination, her family history, and her ideas of what it is to be an American. As a jeweler, Hall never plays it safe, preferring to fly by the seat of her pants and push her skills and technical knowledge. Her work is part of numerous private and public collections including The Museum of Art and Design in NYC, The Tacoma Art Museum, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. She is a product of the jewelry histories that make the Pacific Northwest unique within the larger story of American contemporary jewelry. Featuring 58 images of Hall’s jewelry spanning the period from 1974 to 2019, this book explores why she is an important maker whose practice deserves to be more widely known.
