part of a series on Symmetry
About the speaker
Laura is a a gemmologist (D.G. Fin) and a student of Jewelry Design. She describes her work and her relationship with symmetry as:
“From very early on I have been fascinated by jewellery and ornamental objects; and the joy of creating beautiful objects that accompany our daily lives. My Inspiration comes from art, forms, lights and shadows. The city’s buzz and nature’s silence are both phenomena that excite my imagination. And once my mind has worked over an idea long enough, I can transform that idea into a beautiful object.
My jewellery bears a harmony between enormity and vulnerability. A mutation from the dirty and jagged to the pure and beautiful. Craftsmanship is my pride and joy.
Symmetry is about harmony, balance and perfection. Harmony can be found in a beautiful artwork, but one can also find it within the turmoils of life. Although symmetry and harmony can be seen as synonyms, I think of them as two different concepts that compliment each other. There can be harmony sans symmetry and symmetry can cause disarray. An awareness of the small nuances of imbalance can lead into substantial and positive changes in one’s life.”

COFFEE REVOLUTION SINCE 2004 Johan & Nyström was founded by a group of coffee-loving friends with the vision of a better coffee world. Our mission is to promote the craft by roasting tastier, more fun and more sustainable coffee. It’s not a job, it is a lifestyle and a passion. We will innovate, improve and challenge the coffee industry´s misconceptions about quality. We roast our beans according to an artisanal process called “slow roast” where the coffee develops all the good flavors and aromas inherent to the carefully selected beans. We hope you will enjoy our coffee just as much as we do.
