About the Artist
Lesley Aine Mckeown
Each piece is created in my studio in the tradition of the American Studio Art Jewelry movement of the 1940’s through 60’s which dictates the work is created solely in the artist’s studio. My technical approach is simple and low tech, I collect vintage tools and enjoy using them everyday. I love the idea that a hammer used by another jeweler 50 years ago is making a mark on my work today. One of my favorite things is my bench, it was my father’s and I have used it for more than 30 years now. I consider it a talisman. I am drawn to the unusual and collect stones that reflect this. It is wonder to me still the vast array of beautiful material that comes from the earth. Often my designs are motivated by the stones and complimenting their beauty is all that is needed.
