Want to know more about the people who assemble your favourite watches? 

Meet Laura, a fashion jewellery maker and graduate from Barcelona.

Laura recently joined our watchmaking team, and her main responsibility is putting all the watch parts together - the final step to creating a Mr Jones Watch.  Laura, watchmaker at Mr Jones Watches

Tell us a little bit about you?

I’m from Barcelona (Spain). From a very young age my parents took us to museums, concerts, the theatre, and pretty much anywhere that would develop our creativity. This is something that I still enjoy doing to this day.

And the fact that London has such a broad and ever-changing cultural scene is one of the reasons that drove me to move here.

Recently, I obtained the Diamond Diploma and the Gemmology Diploma qualifications form Gem-A, and I’m currently taking a course on pearls. Blue fashion jewellery Laura Suades jewellery brand Suzzari

What do you like doing outside of work? 

I'm developing my own jewellery brand called Suzzari at the moment, where I try to combine both my hand-making skills with new technologies to create my own unique designs.

I’m always willing to learn and try new things; a new language, new skills, some history, etc.

I particularly enjoy cooking, and trying new recipes, specially anything related to baking, often while watching some TV or reading a book. 

Which is your favourite Mr Jones watch?

I usually fall in love with all the watch designs the minute I learn to assemble them, but my favourite would have to be Sun & Moon.

I'm wearing it all the time at the moment and I really like the fact that it’s inspired by an antique watch design.
