Infraredstudio:: Edgy + Elegant Fashion Finds

Modern jewelry + design handmade with love in Minneapolis, MN. Infrared Studio, an atelier owned by interdisciplinary artist Lauren Nicole, embodies an aesthetic that speaks to everyone from riot grrrls (of all ages!) to more mature women who don’t take their style cues from mainstream media’s fashion police.


Join me tomorrow from 11am–5pm on Dec. 2 for The Island of Misfit Makers, a new, exciting, and slightly renegade show at FOOD BUILDING in NE Minneapolis. It’s free and open to the public (no tickets are required to get in). I'll have lots of goodies for sale ($5-$25 items) perfect for stocking stuffers.
