Question the Answer

Question the Answer A one of a kind jewelry line made by hand in Memphis, Tennessee. Question the Answer is a modern handmade jewelry line based in Memphis, TN. Lauren Carlson is the owner & sole designer behind the brand and she's been in business for about 2.5 years.

QTA was born out of her interest in fashion and the concepts that drive inanimate desire; In line with the rising trend of "slow fashion", Lauren's feminine- yet edgy pieces concentrate on quality & longevity. Her style focuses on minimalist work influenced by heirlooms and modern design. Carlson seeks to underline the thoughtfulness of purchasing quality jewelry, and to highlight the destructiveness of mass production or "fast fashion".

I was so excited to be involved in the creation of this custom engagement ring. An emerald cut teal green/blue sapphire set in a 14K gold bezel setting. The two women that exchanged these rings decided pride month was a suiting time to devote themselves to each other. And I couldn’t be more happy they chose me to help begin their story. 🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈@claire_swindell @realtenacious

Hi everyone,
A bit of bittersweet news... After a lot of thought, I have decided to put a temporary pause on Question the Answer. I need to step away for some time to recharge. Running your own business is no joke and I deeply appreciate all the love and support you have provided me with over the past 5 years. It has been an incredible journey.

Starting January 1st, I will temporarily shut down my website, so now is your last chance to grab any remaining inventory. I plan to apply to a few holiday shows towards the end of 2020, but at this time I am not accepting any new commission orders or wholesale orders, nor am I applying to any spring or summer shows. I aspire to periodically list new items once my initial “unplugging” has ended.

With this decision, I just wanted to say "thank you" for showing up - this community has meant so much to me. You’ve kept my hands busy and my heart happy and for that I am so grateful. I can’t wait to one-day return with new exciting work for you!

Warmly,
Lauren Carlson

P.S. Happy Holidays y'all! :)
The shop will be open for these last couple of days before Christmas and Hanukkah. Swing by for hugs and all the warm fuzzy feelings...

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! As the year is quickly coming to an end, I would like to let you know that I will be retiring a couple of designs come January 2020. I am very excited to explore a new direction with my work, but that means saying goodbye to a couple of classic pieces. The 10K yellow gold rose studs are one of the pieces I’m retiring. If you have been coveting these earrings for a while, now is the time to purchase them. I have two pairs left in stock.

🎃☠️💗⚡️✨🎃💗☠️✨⚡️
The tradition of sugar skulls comes from the Mexican cultural holiday, Día de los Mu***os, where families come together for a series of 3 days to celebrate their deceased loved ones. It is believed that at midnight on October 31st, the gates of heaven open and its souls are released to visit earth again. 💗
💗💗⚡️☠️
Altars or ofrendas are built for their friends and family members who have passed away. On the altars they leave offerings of bread, water, and sweets to comfort the spirits after their tiring travels to earth.
💗💗💗⚡️⚡️⚡️
This holiday represents a celebration of the deceased, the remembrance of their essence in our world and how they impacted our lives. Most everyone has experienced loss, it’s a part of being human. For me, it’s a beautiful thing to celebrate the lives that have left us and invite them into our world today and show them how they still influence and affect our present life on earth.
❤️❤️❤️⚡️💗☠️
Skull imagery has been present in my visual artwork for many years. It symbolizes the fragility of our lives on earth and has always been kind of a “mindful check-in” for me. When I feel over stimulated, frustrated or out of touch, I find that checking in with the little things we experience daily- the sun rising, the blue of the sky, the lush feeling of grass- helps me to appreciate that this life is fleeting and therefore should be embraced vigorously. I appreciate the contrast between this deep and often-dark symbolism and the delicate and feminine nature of my work.
❤️❤️❤️💗⚡️☠️

Sold my last pair of the two-stone turquoise stone earrings this weekend. I’m excited to start making more for y’all! ⚡️This is how I set the stones into the bezel settings. The yellow “putty” is called Jett ballistic and is pliable when immersed in hot water and then becomes super stiff like plastic as it dries so that I don’t harm the setting when hammering the bezel around the stone. ⚡️💗☀
