Lauren P Cook
Auckland, New Zealand

Hi there, I am still a baby in the jewellery world despite being in
my early 30’s. I have done various short courses, a diploma and am
curently doing an advanced course in jewellery design. My jewellery
education has been a bit higglety pigglety because I had my twin
daughters five years ago and as I’m sure many of you will know, small
children don’t mix well wth home workshops! Origionally from NZ, my
partner and have have returned from 6 years in Scotland to settle
back in Auckland so I am launching myself as a professional jeweller
now that my girls are starting school. I have already found the
Ganoskin a valuable resource and look forward to learning and
sharing a lot more as my career progresses.
