About Jen Lesea Designs Jewelry
Through pushing the boundaries in metalsmithing by fusing sterling silver, I create conversation pieces that are inspired by the Rocky Mountains, the southwest desert landscape, and geometric elements. Through my process of fusing sterling silver, I have the freedom to blend my love for texture and the beauty of Mother Nature to create modern jewelry that sparks curiosity and connection.
About the Designer: Jen Lesea-Ames
I have always taken the road less traveled, a non-conformist of sorts. Through many twists and turns, I returned home to my inner creative.
At that moment, I reconnected with a part of myself that had been dormant for many years. Wanting more of a challenge, I studied metalsmithing at the Denver School of Jewelry Arts and fell in love with fusing sterling silver, which enables me to create one-of-a-kind textures. In 2014, I found myself at a crossroads with my career when I was diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia and labral tears. After two hip preservation (PAO) surgeries, I decided to retire from my fitness career and go full-time with my jewelry business.
I think about my story every time I sit down at my jeweler's bench to create a new design. The result is by blending unique metal textures with recycled sterling silver and ethically-sourced gemstones, I create jewelry that has its own unique story and inspiration.
