The Koorie Circle

Laura Thompson is a Gunditjmara woman and artist living and working in Melbourne. 

The designer and maker behind The Koorie Circle, Laura creates contemporary Aboriginal designed and inspired jewellery made from sustainably sourced timber.

Her collection has been developed from a desire to make pieces that tell a story -  celebrating the culture, history and identity of Aboriginal Australians. Painted and finished by hand, each piece bears the mark of its maker and is made to be worn with pride.

Based in Northcote, Melbourne on Wurundjeri land. 

Introducing Rose Stewart (Laura’s daughter), a proud Gunditjmara and Taungurung woman.

Outside of school, Rose enjoys playing sports and spending time with the family. She hopes to travel the world one day.

Due to Covid, Rose was at home with lots of spare time and started helping out mum by working in The Koorie Circle. She started off packing orders, then progressed to answering emails and is now designing earrings. She's pretty much taken over and is now supervising her Nan, Dad & Aunty. The brothers were sacked in week one, under her supervision!  |  @thekooriecircle
