Welcome to Fifth Essence Jewelry! My name is Ashley Lauwereins and all of my jewelry accessories are handcrafted and completely unique. I have been making jewelry for over 15 years. Because I have fallen in love with many of the necklaces I’ve made and I choose to keep them for myself, I ensure that all designs are made to withstand daily wear by my toughest critic: myself.
I enjoy mixing gemstones, metal, wire, and mixed media elements together into beautiful wearable designs. Earrings, necklaces, and bracelets are all designed based off my mood and the materials that inspire me in small collections of a limited number of designs. If you are interested in seeing and buying my jewelry shop my jewelry designs on Etsy.
I also enjoy pushing myself as a designer and using my talents to create custom jewelry for weddings and to give as gifts. If you are searching for jewelry to include in your wedding but haven’t found exactly what you’re looking for, I would love to collaborate with you to create exactly what you want for your special day. If you want to give a meaningful gift, let’s collaborate together to design something special. Contact me to get started.
When I’m not in the studio making jewelry, you’ll find me enjoying a beer, hiking or spending time outside, or relaxing with my cat Sappho.
