RubyJames by Lauren Wall began in 2010 right after the birth of Lauren’s first son, Everett. At that time, Lauren’s grandmother, Ruby, entered a nursing home and wanted Lauren to have all of the jewelry pieces she collected through a lifetime of travelling around the world. Lauren could not bear seeing these vintage items in a box collecting dust, so she learned how to make jewelry. Lauren Wall had a vision of turning these vintage items into wearable art that also told a story. Before long, people started noticing her jewelry and wanted pieces of their own.
Mentored by her successful and creative father, James Van Stavern, RubyJames by Lauren Wall was born. All of the custom bracelets are designed and handmade by Lauren Wall. Most bracelets are made with either vintage charms or vintage findings, making each piece unique and truly a one-of-a-kind piece. RubyJames by Lauren Wall has also expanded to include stacker bracelets that are not custom made but pair nicely with RubyJames custom bracelets for a finished look.
Lauren resides with her husband Matt and their 2 kids, Everett and Eli in Durango, Colorado. When she’s not creating, Lauren can be found paddle boarding on the river or skiing the slopes at Purgatory with her family!
