Leah Meleski's Profile
Leah Meleski earned her BFA in metals from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston. Leah creates wearable jewelry that is inspired by the basic formula that nature grows from. Radiating patterns turn silver into natural, bold, clean lines. Pieces are created through bending and soldering wire into complicated natural forms, some of which are complimented with pieces created through lost wax casting. Several objects have multiple parts that can be assembled into another form such as a teapot and then taken apart for its component parts to be worn as jewelry. Leah creates her work in her home studio located in Jamaica Plain and works as an art educator in the Wellesley school system.
