A Scottish lass been on the Isle of Skye & now living on the dramatic west Wales coastline. Designing & creating have always been passions of mine, starting my early career as a graphic & web designer after completing my degree at the University of Greenwich.
In later life I turned to silversmithing as a hobby while I learnt & practiced my new skills, before launching Made By Leigh in 2019. I use traditional silversmithing techniques & tools to handcraft all my jewellery & silverwear. I never expected blowtorches, saws & hammers to be my obsession; but here we are!
About my jewellery
All my pieces are made entirely by hand from 925 sterling silver, using recycled copper, ethical sea glass collected from local Welsh beaches & semi precious gemstones sourced from responsible suppliers.
Based on the rugged Welsh coastline I am inspired by nature & the stunning coastline, with many of my pieces featuring authentic Welsh sea glass & recycled silver and copper making my jewellery as environmentally friendly as possible.
