Hello to you,
I'm Leah and I design and make fine and demi-fine contemporary jewelry from my studio in Auckland.
The work has an organic feel which is largely process driven. The key method being cast-in-place.
This relatively new technique aligns with the brand ethos to 'go with the flow' and accept imperfection, misalignment, even decay (it's a Wabi-Sabi thing, look it up, it's super interesting).
From designing to mold making, preparation to casting, then finishing. It's a time honoured metal smithing affair with a fresh new twist.
