About Leisa Howes Jewellery

Leisa Howes Jewellery

Designer and maker of jewellery influenced by mythology, nature and the sea.

I took up a jewellery making class at my local college and I quickly became fascinated by the processes involved in working with metal, also learning that making jewellery requires an awful lot of practice and patience! As the college course progressed, I had the chance to study part time for a degree, which I did, alongside my day job and family life, gaining a first class honors degree in 3D metal craft.

Much of my inspiration for jewellery making and working with metal is inspired by nature and the sea. I love mythology, ancient landscapes, standing stones and british wildlife - especially hares which feature in a lot of my work. I love metal that has a patina, looks aged and weathered, a little rustic in appearance.

I enjoy spending my time creating jewellery and other metal craft pieces alongside time with my family. Whenever possible I love to escape to the coast, for days out anywhere from Spurn Point up to the North Yorkshire coast and further afield I have enjoyed many stays in Cornwall, in and around St Ives - one day hopefully I will explore the Hebrides!
