About Us

Our Story

Laurel Leaf began as a small collection within our first shop, Resistance Jewelry. As we began to design more pieces in sterling and gold, it became clear that these special products deserved their own shop. Every Laurel Leaf item is crafted out of sterling silver or 14 karat gold-fill, providing a luxury experience at an affordable price.

Our Jewelry

We aim to create lasting memories through distinctive custom pieces. Each item is hand-stamped to order in our Ottawa workshop, using high-quality metals. There may be subtle variations in depth and placement of the text - this is a feature of the hand-crafted nature of the pieces. Every piece of our jewelry is completely unique and created just for you.

Our Founder

Although I was trained as a molecular biologist, creativity is my true passion. I've been making jewelry since 2017 and loving every minute of it. Having my own home-based business also allows me to spend more time in my other identity - "mother of dragons" to my two active little boys.
