Laura Provan is the designer/maker behind Paisley Pins. Following a successful career in advertising & printing as an artworker & after starting a family Laura took a night class in silver jewellery making & loved it. She returned to full time education completing an HNC in Applied Arts then an HND in Jewellery Design & Silversmithing. She was a runner up in the Incorporation of Goldsmiths Scottish Outstanding Student Award 2016 & her silver bowls won one of the top awards at the 2016 Craftex exhibition.
Paisley Pins was started in 2016 inspired by Paisley’s bid for City of Culture. In 2017 we won a place on Renfrewshire council’s Incube programme & have continued to go from strength to strength. In June 2018 Paisley Pins took the keys to their first studio in the heart of Paisley. We are excited to grow & develop Paisley Pins further in 2019, bringing a bit of Paisley to the world.
