Laconic; to express using few or little words. Established by jewellery designer and craftswoman Lindsay Forbes, to encourage you to embrace the true nature and power of jewellery; express yourself and tell your story through the act of wearing jewels.

Crafted in small batches, using traditional Goldsmithing techniques. There is careful consideration to each piece with a responsible mindset on where the materials are sourced and how the piece is crafted. Inspired by travel and my own Scottish heritage, designs are influenced by the symbolism, myths and storytelling Scotland is famed for.

As a British jewellery designer, each piece I make tells a story designed to help you express your true self; to bring confidence, positivity and strength when you need reminding.
