Leigh Benowitz was a late addition to the JSS guest artist list during West Medford Open Studios:
As an experienced jewelry designer, my attraction to making jewelry is the joy of creativity, diversity of stones, colors, shapes and textures of materials. My designs are lovingly made with only the highest quality semi precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, Swarovski Crystals and natural geodes. My signature piece is a 3 strand crocheted necklace, made with freshwater pearls Swarovski Crystals and/or semi precious gemstones. My other signature piece is a hand stitched bracelet w/ fire polished czech beads and striking color combinations.
Another popular design is a pendant necklace made with semi precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, Swarovski Crystals and one of a kind striking agate geodes from South America. A unique aspect of Jewelry by Leigh is meeting with individuals to custom design pieces that meet their exact needs and imagination.
