Summer is the perfect season to accessorize so we are extra excited to introduce you to Leah Mead of Jane Elizabeth Jewelry. She is a wifey, momma of two boys, and resident of Gladwin, Michigan. Somewhere in between family life and her own hobbies including a basketball league and running road races, she manages to make time for her jewelry business. Leah started making jewelry when she was a child, she says “not good jewelry, though.” The more simple kind that kids make stringing pony beads onto a piece of elastic kind of jewelry :) As you will see at the bottom of this post and visiting her site, her skills have come a long way, but she says her reason remains the same, “I just love creating things!”
Her business is named after her mom, Jane Elizabeth, who Leah says she inherited her creativity from. Her mom was always working on a project and Leah seems to embody that same characteristic in her life. Leah also loves spending outdoors and draws a lot of her inspiration for her pieces from the beautiful colors and textures of nature. Her favorite part of the process is when someone buys a pieces of jewelry she’s made, “I am still humbled every time someone loves something that I created.” Right now she’s really loving working with leather in her jewelry.
