ReRe Earrings - Wooden Hoops - Navy Bead
Inspiration for Chicago born artist Leah Sturgis comes from the place where landscape and architecture intersect.
Her unique, handmade jewelry captures the mystery of wild elements ~ caribou antler, porcupine quill, wood, fresh water pearl ~ in structured, clean designs, creating pieces that are both elegant and organic.
Many of Leah's materials come from Alaska, where she lived for 12 years before moving East. Born and raised in Chicago, Leah developed a strong artistic sense and began creative exploration at an early age. Her parents said that, "If you give Leah enough paper and tape she will build a house."
Leah's studio is located in Alexandria, Virginia, where she lives. Her work can be found in galleries across the country, from the tiny outpost of Chicken, Alaska to New York City.
