Mastering the understated statement is the goal of Jen Leddy Studios' design. Jewelry inspired by minimalism and delicacy in its modern form but that pays homage to its inception in history and vintage aesthetics through old-world, traditional techniques. Jen utilizes asymmetrical balance to create a subtle play that is eye-catching without being distracting. That balance appears in composition, texture, and color. Simplicity in design allows for the jewelry to be timeless, speaking to multiple generations.
Jen Leddy Studios jewelry is entirely hand-fabricated using traditional goldsmithing techniques from recycled precious metals with dedication to excellence in craftsmanship. Each piece receives individual attention and care, each beautifully unique, and often one-of-a-kind. All gemstones are natural and responsibly sourced (mine-to-market when possible), and all diamonds are conflict-free, recycled, or post-consumer. Building relationships with ethically empowered vendors and suppliers to support sustainable practices is paramount in Jen’s business and studio.
Originally from Colorado, Jen’s jewelry path ignited during an introductory metalsmithing class while studying abroad in Florence, Italy in 2007. In pursuit of more, she transplanted to San Francisco, CA, in 2011 to further her studies at Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts. In 2018 she moved to Austin, TX, where she currently lives and works from her home studio, producing everything 100% handmade in-house.
