Leah Lewington lives in St. Just in Penwith, Cornwall and works from her home studio. She is the daughter of Sue Lewington, a well known watercolour artist who lived and painted on St. Martins in the Isles of Scilly for many years. Leah spent much of her childhood on the island exploring many creative avenues. It was not until she had moved to the Cornish mainland, that her interest began to focus on jewellery.
Leah’s work is quirky and original, using mainly sterling silver with copper or gold elements incorporated into her designs. Precious and semi precious stones also feature in her work, and she is happy to undertake commissions for a special occasion. Leah balances her work commitments with her family life. She has a partner, three daughters and a dog.
