The Artist

Hey there, I'm so glad you're here! I’m Samantha Thurman, a self-taught jewelry artist and silversmith, the face behind Lavender + Lee. With an unyielding passion for crafting one-of-a-kind pieces, I have immersed myself in the art of jewelry making, honing my skills through dedication, experimentation, and a profound love for the craft.

My jewelry business began just as I became a mother. Jewelry was my creative outlet as well as self-expression, an exploration of the beauty that can be shaped from raw materials. Without the constraints of formal training, I embraced the freedom to delve into the art of jewelry making and silversmithing. Guided by my intuition and inspiration from the arts community, I have pushed the boundaries of my abilities, continuously learning and growing with every piece I’ve created.

My pieces are inspired by nature, the organic shapes found around us, and naturally vibrant colors. Meticulously crafted necklaces, charms, bracelets and rings capture the whimsical beauty of everyday life. I hope that my unique one of a kind pieces will be an invitation for others to embrace their own unique self and celebrate it everyday. Together, let's celebrate the magic of self-expression through jewelry. Find your new signature pieces from Lavender + Lee.
