About Me

Hello, my name is Lara and I am the creative mind behind Lara B Baubles.  And I am also the one doing all the work!!!  But it's work I truly love!  After years of working in cubicles in large, windowless buildings and doing a wide array of clerical, engineering and project management type tasks, I became somewhat disenchanted.  With the encouragement and support of my husband of 26 years, I took a break from cubicle land and decided to fulfill a dream of mine - working with metals to create jewelry.  My husband gave me the gift of a metalsmithing class and so my metalsmithing journey began. 

Why do I enjoy jewelry so much?  I feel like it helps put polish on outfits and expresses the personality and mood of the wearer.  One of my favorite parts of my day is picking out what I'm going to wear that day - and it affects how I approach whatever lies ahead.  I love color - so expect to see some colorfully finished pieces over the next few months and years.

I work out of my basement studio in Highlands Ranch, Colorado in the home I share with my husband, Ray, and my two dogs, Daisy and Benny.  I also enjoy writing and hope someday to finish that book I've been promising to write for years.  I hope you find something that speaks to you among my array of baubles and thanks for stopping by!
