JEWELRY ADORNMENTS FOR EVERY BODY
Astraea Designs has unique, handmade body jewelry adornments such as body chains, chain bralettes, headdresses, handflowers, thigh chains, & more from the extremely talented designer and jeweler, Astra Poyser Laughlin. Astra has been creating and designing jewelry for over fifteen years, and is based in Austin, Texas.
My goal is to capture something intangible and help the wearer feel beautiful, divine, honored, and cherished — no matter their size, age, gender identity, or any other external factors. I also like to believe that my jewelry — often made from semi-precious stones with various metaphysical properties — acts as armor or protection for the wearer. I often upcycle thrift store jewelry into my one-of-a-kind pieces — turning something old or discarded into something new, beautiful, and special — just like the individuals who wear them! – Astra Laughlin

I have been creating and designing jewelry for the last 15 years, and worked for a couple of high-end jewelry companies in Austin, TX, such as Anthony Nak and LizaBeth Jewelry, where I learned wire-wrapping, silk knotting, chainmail, and other skills. I continue to use those techniques and acute attention to detail in my own work, although I enjoy incorporating scavenged pieces of thrift store jewelry, as I enjoy the challenge of turning something old into something new and unique.
I also pay attention to the metaphysical properties of semi-precious stones and other materials that I use in my pieces, with the intent of creating beautiful, protective “armor” for the wearer, to help shield them or to encourage certain aspects when worn.
My goal, beyond simply making pretty things to wear, is to help individuals feel sacred, honored, and cherished, and learn to appreciate and adorn their bodies.
