About Leah

I am jeweler and painter from Hadley, Massachusetts. I aim to craft beautiful fine jewelry & artwork for you to enjoy for years and generations. All of my jewelry is handmade out of my home studio.

My roots are in the studio arts. Painting has been my passion ever since I can remember. I received my BFA in Painting from the University of Massachusetts and loved every minute of it. Throughout my schooling I became more and more interested in metalwork and began to teach myself the basics. I was immediately hooked. There was something about metalwork at such a delicate and detailed scale that I just couldn’t resist. I eventually started a job in a professional jewelry studio. There I had the pleasure of working with a few amazing jewelers who taught me invaluable skills and techniques as well as the ins and outs of the industry. I have now taken the exciting leap at starting my own jewelry business.

Aside from jewelry and art, I also love rock climbing, hiking, and collecting antique photographs.
