Kids One Stop Shop would like to introduce Dream of Silver
Who is the face behind Dream of Silver?
The face behind Dream of Silver is me, Laura Swain! I am a silversmith and I design and make handcrafted silver jewellery in my small workshop near York.
Why and when did you create Dream of Silver?
I have been making jewellery since I was a young girl, starting out using beads and basic findings, later developing my skills and finally progressing onto silversmithing. I am mainly self taught, but have also trained at York School of Jewellery and Leeds College of Art. I set up my business, Dream of Silver, in December 2007 and started to build my website in order that I could develop a brand and promote my jewellery to people all over the UK and beyond.
What’s your mission?
Dream of Silver’s mission is to design and make wearable silver jewellery that can be enjoyed every day – not just on special occasions.
What do you wish people knew about Dream of Silver?
I would love more people to know about my Silver Treasures collection which includes a range of silver animal silhouette jewellery. The most popular are the Silver Hedgehog Stud Earrings, closely followed by the Scottie Dog Stud Earrings! They make fantastic presents for any animal lover and they are suitable for both adults and children.
What’s Dream of Silver’s secret to success?
Lots of hard work, a little bit of fun and always having a notepad on hand – I never know when an idea for a new piece of jewellery will pop into my head!
Thank you Laura!
