Laurie Berezin

Laurie Lynn Berezin studied the traditional craft of jewelry fabrication at the renowned North Bennet Street School in Boston, and handcrafts one-of-a-kind original and custom designs for her jewelry business Beryllina at the legendary Artisan’s Asylum in Somerville. Working in recycled sterling silver, gold, and platinum, she designs her jewelry around the USA-mined gemstones and crystals that she collects, creating pieces that showcase the natural beauty of the stones. Attention to detail is one of her favorite parts of the process in crafting well-made beautiful jewelry, as is mining some of her own stones! Check out Laurie’s work at www.beryllina.com and www.instagram.com/beryllinalove.
