My name is Leo. I'm a college student, linguist, and artist. Art is a matter of necessity for me, so I will create something with whatever is on hand - I sing, I ballroom dance, I work backstage, I draw and sew, but jewelry is my love, and it is how I share my art with other people. I love to give things away - if I could afford unlimited materials (and college) I would give away everything I make, just to bring smiles...

I've been making my own jewelry for years, and recently I've had enough requests that I can no longer afford not to set up shop.

There is nothing that makes me happier than knowing that someone likes something I made for her. If you like my work, I would really appreciate your support, as it helps me progress. Your encouragement motivates me to learn more, and your financial support gives me access to more and better materials and tools. I expect my work to keep evolving, so please keep in touch!


I can be found at www.letterboxlion.com with a portfolio and some descriptions of my work. I am also on blogspot (for the long-winded version) and facebook and twitter (for the short-winded version), under the name letterboxlion.
