Hello, I am Laura, or you can call me Louy.

I am intrinsically creative, always have been, and my life would not be fulfilled if I didn’t spend at least half my time using my hands to create beautiful handmade jewellery.

The pure joy I feel when I make a piece of unique jewellery for someone, whether it’s to mark a special occasion or a treat for yourself, is the driving force behind Louy Magroos.

Handmade jewellery is my passion, creating something with my hands that will be worn forever, become a cherished keepsake, and passed down to future generations is something I will never get tired of.

My qualifications.

I studied at the prestigious Birmingham School of Jewellery, and graduated with a First Class Honors Degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing in 2008. Since then I have completed various short courses to further my training and I am always learning through practice. The best part of being a silversmith is there is always more to learn, new skills to hone and new techniques to master.


My favourite things to make.

Sometimes the simplest of designs are my favourite. A simple combination of skinny stacking rings, or a pair of silver cufflinks with bold contrasts and simple lines. I also love to add personalisation to many of my designs, making them unique to the wearer, helping them to celebrate important life moments with jewellery that soon become treasured keepsakes.
