Larimar jewelry has a unique appeal that goes beyond just the stone. It is the intricate details in the metalwork and the magic behind each design that make them so special. This article focuses on Samy, one of the head artisans at TLS, and his journey to becoming a talented jewelry designer.
Becoming an artist
Samy's family had a creative background, with his father being a skilled watchmaker. As a child, he spent his time playing outside and creating his own toys. His interest in jewelry design began when he watched his older brother create earrings using homemade tools.
At the age of 12, Samy discovered the Larimar stone, which was not well known at the time. He began learning the process of making handmade jewelry using gemstones such as pink conch, amber, and black coral!
