About

What I do is build things. I like to work in silver & bronze & gold but I do work in other metals (on occasion depending on a whim).
Very often the unique gems and materials I use are found in small quantities. These result in limited edition or one-of-a-kind pieces here in my gallery. Its good to check in from time to time to see whats new.
I do have some regular repeated designs, if you dont see something you've noticed before please ask.
I'm moody in what I design, thats why you will see a wide variety of styles of jewelry here.


I am inspired by my experiences out doors in nature, and from seeing other artists ,the internet, and as a hunter in the deep jungles of the antique business. I will always gravitate towards making beautiful things that please my eye. Hopefully yours too!…

More Bio~

I am originally from Massachusetts, but I've lived in New Orleans so long now Ive grown roots. It is my home & where I make my beautiful things.
My art education started at home with my Dad. He always encouraged me to tinker and put things together. My formal schooling .... Massachusetts College of Art & The Penland School & time spent apprenticing then becoming full time bench jeweler ...as well as periodic stops at seminars and workshops along the way. I have been making metal things/ jewelry since 1987.
All my listed items are already made & ready to be shipped!

Everything here is handmade only by me, Monique Leon ,and is new and un-worn.

I really enjoy what I do here at Etsy & I'd love to hear from you!
If you have any questions, suggestions, or custom order ideas (yes!), or if you're interested in selling my jewelry in your store, send me an email through Etsy!

I stand behind my jewelry. It's made to last and be enjoyed.
(That said there are pieces that are very delicate and they should be treated so & with respect.)

I LOVE ETSY!!!
