For this #wcw, I’ve decided to introduce a new series AND a new lovely local lady.
Meet Jess, the beautiful face behind Jess Leigh Jewels, a local jewelry designer.
Besides being the cutest, sweetest person you’ll ever meet, she’s also hella talented.
She crafts jewelry out of passion for antique treasures. When you look at her pieces, that statement is obvious. Her designs are hand-crafted, original one-of-a-kind statement pieces.
Can we talk about this Cleopatra harness for one second?
They’re a fantastic conversation starter and a great way to dress up a casual outfit.
Her designs reflect a lot on nature. She was raised in Ohio, which has a huge influence on her designs.
She recently collaborated with Ella Rose for New Orleans Fashion Week S/S ’14. She did all the jewelry for the show, which complemented Ella’s flirtatious, girly line perfectly, including an intricate crown made of four large brooches, two antique rhinestone earrings, one vintage gold chain, rhinestone chain details and gold fill wire.
