I was born and raised in Colombia, South America, with a B.A. Business Economics from the Universite de Droit, dâ€™Economie et Sciences Sociales de Paris-Paris France, moved to Canada in 2003 and studied jewellery at Ecole de Joaillerie de Montreal, Montreal.
I have been living in Toronto since 2013. I joined Jewel Envy and created my own jewellery companies h.p.lafaurie and joy.h.l.lafaurie.
I design and make limited edition jewellery collections for my personal business as well as custom pieces for customers. We work together to bring their ideas to completion with my designs.
All jewelers and designers deal with patterns, forms, colors, and every one of us brings our passion through our work.
The simple and ordinary things give me inspiration and over the years my head and my spirit are full with the most extraordinary riches of all, creativity. Every day I feel I have accomplished something that is very important not only for me but for the people that love my work.
The transformation of materials into wonderful things is limited only by our imagination. I feel very lucky to be doing something that I love so much to do!

New designs growing in the quiet of january
Helena Perez Lafaurie’s new work
January is a quiet time for goldsmiths.Â The Christmas rush is over and Valentineâ€™s Day seems a long way off.Â But donâ€™t let our quietness fool you.Â Like so many things in winter we are working quietly away in the dark and cold ready to spring forth with new growth.
One such goldsmith is Helena PĂ©rez Lafaurie. She has spent January working on new pieces for her eponymous jewellery line. Like many of us Helena canâ€™t keep her mind off of the warmth and sun of Spring and this can be seen in her new work called, of course, â€śSpring.â€ť
“Spring” bracelet in silver and Agatha, length 7 inches, price $165
The line was inspired by the agate stones seen in both the necklace and bracelet, â€śThe agate looks like blossoms to me, I miss the spring so much, the flowers, the sunâ€¦,â€ťshe trails off, misty eyed.Â Between you and me, I think the line is inspired by her soon-to-be-born first grandson!
“Spring” necklace in silver and Agatha, length 33 inches, price $220
Helenaâ€™s second set of new pieces is called â€śCharms.â€ť As all of us at Jewel Envy can testify, Helena LOVES little things that shine and make noises.
Necklace in silver, length 33 inches, price $166
When Helena is in the studio, her ever-present stacked silver bracelets are in constant movement and making sound much like this new necklace and bracelet will when wornâ€”they are sure to attract the attention of the new grandson!
