Laura Reed was born and raised in San Antonio, TX. She found her way to Charleston while stationed in Goose Creek to attend Naval Nuclear Propulsion Training while serving in the U.S. Navy. After 6 years of service, she decided to make the move back to Charleston and make it her permanent home.
After discovering the beautifully delicate oyster shells on The Battery beach, she decided to transform them into wearable art. Her use of the shells are a tribute to their natural beauty and the beauty of her new found home of Charleston, SC.
