A life drawn to water has provided the inspiration for Leah Alexandra's jewellery collection, having spent many summers on the sandy shores of Cape Cod.
While obtaining a Bachelor of Design at Ryerson University, Leah worked as a jewellery buyer for a small boutique. It was then that she discovered opportunities to purchase exotic gemstones & pearls from around the world, and began collecting materials to make her own jewellery.
By the time Leah earned her degree in 2004, friends, family and classmates were lining up to place their orders. Committed to developing her skills and expanding her knowledge, Leah enrolled in a metalsmithing course upon moving from Toronto to Vancouver. She followed that with an internship with a local goldsmith. Now hollywood celebs like Jessica Alba and Reese Witherspoon have adorned themselves with her designs.
Leah's jewellery is timeless, fresh and versatile with pieces that will compliment anything from jeans and a T-shirt to a wedding dress! Materials used in the line included Sterling Silver, 14 Karat Gold Fill, 24 Karat Gold Vermeil, and carefully hand-selected gemstones and freshwater pearls. All jewellery is handmade in Vancouver, just a short stroll from the beach.
