Leane here! You’ve found me in the middle of a great shift in my personal, professional, and creative life, and I’m happy to tell you about it.
I have been a hobby Maker of Things my entire life. It started at a very young age, as with most kids, with macaroni necklaces, and continued on to sewing modifications of my thrift store clothes, and tons of beaded jewelry making. In 2017, some of my best friends opened a Makers Space and I enjoyed many hours of pottery and metalsmithing classes and practice with them, and the greater creative community. I fell in love with the metalsmithing and jewelry making, especially in working with Silver, and finding creative ways to combine metal with gemstone beads.
