Laurie McGrath

Laurie has been the CAD Manager at Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery since 2022. After joining in 2011 as a Design Assistant, she progressed to Senior Designer and Branch Manager at our North Hertfordshire Jewellery Centre before specialising in CAD in 2017. She is now enjoying setting up a new distinct CAD department which includes training our next generation of in-house CAD designers. 

Laurie has an MA in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery from the Royal College of Art in London which soon led to her launching her career with us. Since 2011, she has developed her exceptional sills, advancing to CAD training in 2014 alongside her designer role. As a result she has a solid customer base, producing some remarkable designs to the delight of her many happy customers. This includes a collaboration, in 2015, with a Royal Navy Commander and his officers to design a bespoke brooch worn by the late Queen Elizabeth II.  

It was an inspiring art teacher who convinced Laurie that she should head towards a career in the creative arts, leading her to enrol on an Art Foundation course after finishing her A Levels. She then embarked on a degree in Applied Arts at the University of Hertfordshire where she achieved a 1st. Her university journey gave her many opportunities to expand her skillset. She took part in an Erasmus scheme at the National Academy of Art in Sofia, being on their BA Metal Programme for a term. She also exhibited at the 'New Designers' Exhibition in Islington and 'Designer Crafts at The Mall' in the Mall Galleries, London.

Laurie loves elegant design, modern art and surrealism and is fascinated by bringing sketches to life via 3D technology.

    A Hundred Thousand Years of Jewellery

    In 2006 Scientists working in Algeria and Israel made an important discovery. What they discovered formed the basis for the conclusion that modern human culture dates back even further than was previously believed - over 100,000 years.
