Native Memphian, Lauren Carlson began making jewelry in her apartment in 2014. This sparked the foundation of her business, Question the Answer, a one of a kind jewelry line seeking to make minimal pieces influenced by heirlooms, vanitas imagery & modern design.
In line with the rising trend of "slow fashion", Carlson's feminine- yet edgy pieces concentrate on quality & longevity. She seeks to underline the thoughtfulness of purchasing quality jewelry, and to highlight the destructiveness of mass production or "fast fashion".
FROM THE DESIGNER
Being a Memphis native, I find it very important that my studio and my business exist in my hometown. I am deeply encouraged and rewarded to be a part of our creative community and to produce work amongst so many other multi-talented Memphis makers.
