The Laura Lance Collection was inspired by Laura’s glamourous grandmother and fashionista Helen Lance. Helen was a major fashion presence in her hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, and set many fashion trends. Helen and her sister Frances often flew to Paris to see designer collections and the current fashions — most of which had to be custom made for her small figure. One of Laura’s favorite childhood memories is spending time with her grandmother organizing her jewelry collection. One of Laura’s most treasured items is a signed Kenneth Jay Lane zebra bracelet that Helen frequently wore.Laura has collected jewelry since she was a child and as an adult has been able to add to that collection from Palm Beach to Paris. After selling several pieces off her neck to both friends and strangers, she decided to take her passion to a whole new level. The preppy classic pink and green look is always appropriate and always at home in Lake Forest.Laura launched her collection in 2011 in Lake Forest, and has been building a very successful business while constantly finding new colorful, whimsical, preppy, elegant and classic items to add. Her greatest joy is sharing her “collection” with others and making her customers feel special (because they are).
