Welcome to Laser and Beam. My name is Lauren Monaghan and I live with my husband and two young daughters on Melbourne's Mornington Peninsula.

Random facts you might find interesting are:

1. I am a cat-lover to a ginger puss named 'Pork Chop'
2. I'm a motorsport enthusiast and LOVE MotoGP
3. I recently achieved my goal of owning my own Laser Machine!
      So why do I put all my time and effort into this business? Well... becoming a mum three years ago really shook my self-worth. It made me think I had nothing more to give than being a mum. Don't get me wrong, motherhood has changed me so much for the better but I really missed having a creative outlet. Somewhere to have fun, somewhere quiet, somewhere to simply reset.

      I began making resin earrings whilst we were living in the remote town of Katherine in the Northern Territory. I loved the surprise of discovering how your earrings would turn out with each pour. I then progressed to designing acrylic earrings and found I really loved the quality and comfort of the end product.

      As mentioned above, this year saw me achieve a huge goal (and I'm really proud of myself) by being able to invest in my own laser machine. The opportunities are endless! I really hope you find something you love in my collections and enjoy wearing them as much as I've enjoyed creating them!

      Don't forget to tag Laser and Beam in your photos on Instagram @laserandbeam as I love seeing my new friends enjoying their orders.

      Lauren x
