Leanne Designs

Leanne Designs is an amazing jewelry shop that has been on etsy for over 2 years!

#1. How did you decide on your shop name?
My shop name isn't terribly original, but all the pieces I design come from my thoughts and ideas, so I thought why not just use my name...

#2. When did you start crafting?
I come from a family of wonderful seamstresses on my father's side. My grandmother always had a dress made for me when I came to visit her. I knit and crochet. As a child I remember doing all sorts of projects.

#3. What or who inspires you?
Beads and their colors inspire me! I can find some beads that I love and usually a design will pop into my mind. I love the work done by glass artisans. Lately I've been inspired to start working with brass pieces and painting them, for colour variety. Also, working with naturual stones like turquoise has been a lot of fun!

#4. Do you have a day job?
Yes, I do.

#5. What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why?
I honestly can't pick just one piece. I would have to say though, that any of my lampwork bead bracelets are my favourite things to make.

Audrey's Accolades:
What lovely jewelry is in this shop. Leanne has a wonderful imagination, that she uses to make special bracelelts, necklaces and earrings. Leanne puts the loolest beads together to make a beautiful piece of jewelry. I just love the beads that make up these earrings.
These are a gorgeous, classy pair of earrings made with handmade beads by the glass artisons at Unicorne. The beads are dichroic glass in sage green and silver.
