Jewelry with extraordinary semi-precious stones, pearls, silver and gold vermeil beads and unique pendants.




Laurie and Lisa Designs

Even when they were little, sisters Laurie Wetterschneider and Lisa Peterson enjoyed making jewelry together. Whether they were stringing Fruit Loops or elbow macaroni, they enjoyed one another’s company and inspired each other. As they grew older, their lives diverged…Lisa became an attorney in New York where the two grew up. Laurie moved to Tucson where, upon her graduation from the University of Arizona, she worked in the radio business for many years and then shifted gears into fundraising and development. Feeling a resurgence of their creative juices, they formed Laurie and Lisa Designs in 2003. They hope you enjoy their jewelry…even if it’s no longer edible!  We are honored and delighted to have celebrated seventeen  years in business in March of 2020!
