Laconic is a sustainable brand by jewellery designer, Lindsay Forbes. Crafted by hand in small batches using traditional Goldsmithing techniques and responsibly sourced materials.
Lindsay's design inspirations range through travelling; experiencing culture and history, her Scottish heritage; folklore influenced by natural landscape and exploring design boundaries. There is an appreciation for minimal and sculptural design as well as consideration for the history and purpose of jewellery.
Using traditional Goldsmithing techniques, including lost-wax casting and forging. Cast elements are combined with hand-built details fabricated by cutting sheet metal, forging wire and soldering.
Laconic was born from the desire to do something Lindsay wholeheartedly believed in and was passionate about. Years spent at art school taught the importance of the design process, drawing and designing to a brief and knowledge of how materials work together to craft them into existence, building upon this by many more years working in the industry learning and honing skills. Each piece of Laconic jewellery is mindfully created with attention to detail within each element, designed with heart and crafted by hand.
