the designer

nice to meet you! i'm laura. thank you so much for making my dream possible and supporting small creative business! i was born in buenos aires and raised in tokyo and london. since i can remember i've had a passion for art, fashion, film and all things magical. i began making magical pieces in 2016, in brooklyn, as a way to spark my creativity during a period in my life that was lacking light & creativity. on a whim, i listed my pieces on etsy and the rest is history. between 2018-2021 j&m was based in chicago. now, all pieces are handmade at my home studio in austin.

who's judy & madeleine?

named after hitchcock's vertigo (1958). judy/madeleine is the dual character played by kim novak. the name is a play off the idea, or the existence, of one's alter ego. we invite you to create your own alter ego in our accessories.
