Laura Micheli is a multidisciplinary studio based in Zurich working across architecture and jewelry design.




Laura Micheli Jewelry is produced between Zurich and Italy, exploring the union of beauty and emotions through craftsmanship. The fascination for the unexpected and organic architecture of Nature is translated into unique crafted pieces of contemporary design and jewelry.
„My education in architecture has driven my interest towards every form and scale of art and design. I like to think of my pieces as intimate and emotional. I often use archaic and organic forms, often inspired by nature and my training as architect leads my eyes and hands in the sense of proportion and composition, in the role of light, in the functional research. The creative process behind my pieces takes place in different ways. It can start from a formal or aesthetic inspiration, from a memory, or from the request of the client. Often a creative error turns into an element of interest, so when a piece is not finished yet, a second is already born”. Laura
