Jewelry by Leigh Roberts

Two concepts, an appreciation for beauty and individuality, have had the greatest influence on what I do and who I am. They have shaped the way I look at the world and helped me to grow as a person and as an artist. A passion for art, architecture, past cultures and nature has taught me to see and appreciate beauty. To me, beauty stems from the selection of materials; the arrangement of elements; and the weaving of textures and colors in each piece of jewelry I design.

Carefully hand fabricated, my work incorporates metalsmithing techniques including: perforation, synclastic/anticlastic forming, and a variety of metal surface treatments. Jewelry pieces are often accentuated with Kumihimo, the Japanese art of weaving silk threads into decorative cords. I love to combine the softness of the fiber with the hardness of the metal or stones to produce a yin-yang quality in my work

My unique style allows me to create beautiful pieces with a contemporary aesthetic. Each design is a wearable work of art, an elegant personal adornment.
