Laila Smith is a jeweller based on the south coast of England. She designs and makes simple, elegant jewellery using geometric forms that are crisp and beautifully crafted. The work is made in solid silver with gold vermeil accents and currently details an obsession with geometry.
She has had jewellery studios in London, Birmingham and Brighton where she currently works. After graduation in 1996 Laila took a place on a jewellery fellowship in the The Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham and this amazing start to her career opened her practice to all the professional possibilities and working methods that she has utilised throughout her career to date.
