Leza McLeod started training as a goldsmith in the summer of her nineteenth year. It was a natural progression from years of doodling, painting and drawing to working with her hands. She served her apprenticeship under not one but two journeymen, the precisely talented Mark Whitehorn and the talentedly precise Francois De Villiers.
Leza was lucky enough, over the years, to have been exposed to all types of jewellery projects. From ten carat solitaire diamond rings to painstakingly crafted diamond tennis necklaces. Years specialising in antique reproduction has taught her the finest level of detail which carries through into all her pieces.
The hand-made piece of jewellery has something about it. It’s like a little sculpture, a little piece of art.
Leza can create a classic piece or realise a more contemporary piece.
In 2006 Leza decided to start school in order to pass on her knowledge and help people explore their own creativity. Click here to visit the school.
