About

A long time coming

I used to check out jewelry making books from the library when I was in high school. What began with a love of the end result ended with a love for the process. I remember being SO fascinated by the descriptions of all these crazy tools and supplies. Soldering torch? Flux? Third hand?! As fascinating as it all was though, it would be about fifteen years before I actually learned how to use those tools. Jewelry making can be pretty daunting and expensive for a beginner.

I was living in Portland and finally signed up for a class at a local community center. I got over being afraid of using fire and breaking saw blades. I learned how to make soldered joins and jump rings. I began to get a feel for the metal. I made some sucky jewelry at first. :)

But I kept at it! I saved tips from my coffee shop job and sloooowly built a tool collection. I kept making in my spare time and finally got brave enough to show some of my artisan-type friends. I started doing commissions and selling at local craft fairs. I realized that I enjoyed every moment spent on my line; from hammering metal to budgeting to picking out business cards.

Now I'm living in sunny Los Angeles. Duchess Leigh is a one woman show. I design, make, control inventory, photograph, ship, answer emails, balance the books and promote my work. I still have a day job, and have never been busier! But I've never been happier, either.
