Our Team


There’s something magical about buying handmade goods, rather than a factory made object, it also helps our environment, supports our artistic community and improves our local economy.

As a designer I wanted to support other makers and give them a platform to showcase their work, telling the story behind what they do. 

Our makers produce diverse work, demonstrating a commitment to quality and originality, which last and get better with each use.

These unique collections sit alongside carefully sourced home wares and European brands, with the aim to provide gifts that are as much of a pleasure to give as they are to receive. 

Our growing number of customers love that they can always find something different in our shop – pieces that are true one offs, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for, we also provide custom designs.

We hope you enjoy exploring the collections that we design, develop and source with the help of skilled craft-makers from the UK and beyond, and we look forward to hearing from you soon.


Lara Smith – Founder


Previously a Personal Shopper working in the City of Bath, I moved to Warwick for love and then went back to art school to specialise in contemporary jewellery.

Being around the work of other makers on a daily basis is inspirational and proves it is possible to make a creative living.

People who are drawn to Smithery are usually those who are creative or are after something unique and special.  We tend to share fun and interesting conversations with our customers, which is one of my favourite parts about working here.
