HANDCRAFTED IN SCOTLAND
Each piece of Leanne Street jewellery is thoughtfully handcrafted by myself using dichroic glass to create elegant pieces that are perfect for people that want originality which is high in quality but still affordable. I find it makes it even more special for the person wearing my jewellery or receiving it as a gift, recognizing that each piece is one of a kind.
And because all my jewellery arrives in its own elegant custom gift box it is perfectly ready to give as a gift to a loved one, or to keep for yourself.
Taking the sheets of glass, cutting them into desired shapes, layering and hand-shaping them and ending with a piece of jewellery unique from all others. I love the transformative abilities that occur when working with dichroic glass and therefore the countless possibilities that can be created from it. You can be assured that my handmade pieces are always original and no two are identical.
The creation of this glass follows a very sophisticated method which produces colours on glass that shift when viewed from different angles, similar to reflections from a crystal.
Originally adapted for the aerospace industry this method is now used to make stunning colours by vapourizing quartz crystal and metal oxides. The vapour attaches to the glass in as many as 30 separate ultra-thin layers on one single sheet of glass giving reflection and colour changes depending on the light and how it is viewed.
