Biography

Born in Dorset, Lesley's love of the countryside has meant that she has set up her studio in this beautiful County.

She developed a passion for creating bespoke jewellery from precious metal and has combined this with with her love of the 1920's - 1930's style and elegance.
Whilst studying for her degree (1997 -2000), she discovered she had a natural aptitude in the art of design. Whilst undertaking a successful career, she realised that her true focus lay with silversmithing and design. She has since left her full time employment and now works as a self employed jewellery designer and silversmith.

In 2007 she received a prestigious Gold Award for Work of Outstanding Merit in the Centennial Dorset Exhibition. In August.

2008 she won the only Gold Award presented to the competing silversmiths'.

2009 was once again a successful year in the Dorset Exhibition with Lesley winning Gold Awards for the 4 entries she made into this year's competition. Her silver, gold and diamond pendant was further awarded the Dutton Trophy for Metalwork, presented by Mrs Sally Weld DL.

April 2010 brought a further success for Lesley when she was contacted by VOGUE magazine who invited her to participate in a feature on bespoke jewellery, entitled "Beautifully Bespoke". She was advised that they try and search out smaller designers who they feel would suit their prestigous magazine and her designer jewellery was just what they were looking for.

2011 - 2014- Craft & Design Selected Awards. FINALIST.
