Columbia, South Carolina
Valerie Lamott creates handcrafted jewelry for everyday wear using traditional metalsmithing and lapidary techniques. Heavily influenced by her time spent living in Japan and hiking all over the world, Valerie strives to create pieces that incorporate a minimal aesthetic and appreciation for the outdoors. The sterling silver flowers and twigs are hand cast from actual botanics, making each one as unique as nature intended.
Valerie is also completing 47 pieces of jewelry, inspired by her experience at each of the 47 South Carolina state parks.
Valerie currently resides in Columbia, SC and can be found making jewelry in her studio with her mostly poodle shelter mutt, Dinosaur.
