About

I have a wax and clay carving obsession.

Leah Ball products are hand crafted in Chicago Illinois.

Leah Ball's jewelry collection was inspired by Slag, Melting Glaciers, and Natural Geometry. For a year before completing this collection, Leah apprenticed at a bronze foundry, where she was fascinated by the hardened drips and spills that remained after pouring molten bronze. She began to collect these “happy accidents” and use their organic shapes and textures to imbue her designs. Each piece from this collection incorporates these gnarled and melted textures into classic and timeless adornment. She continues to also add her love of figure studies in her Gestural collection.

Tedium drew Leah to metal and now draws her to also working in Porcelain. Dedicating herself to the art of layering colors into porcelain she is creating unique slabs of illustrative pattern and then hand building them into various home objects. It is a labor of love and exploration. Stay tuned for one-of-kind creations in Marbled Porcelain.

    I have a background in illustration, sculpture, and graphic design, all of which have informed my work in Metalsmithing. I am drawn to the permanence of metal, the patience required by the craft, and the stories and memories behind each treasure.

Leah Ball jewelry is made using unique hand carved cast metal components by the artist. Many pieces are offered in yellow bronze and on an oxidized silver chain but can be cast in sterling silver or gold and placed on a gold-filled chain. The darkness in color of the oxidized chain will wear over time but continue to always have that "antiqued" look.

Where bronze is in contact with the skin the metal has been sealed to prevent skin irritation and discoloration. Bronze needs to be regularly cleaned in order to keep its color tone.

Each piece is hand carved and cast in Chicago!

My process for all ceramics work is a many-layered-labor-of-love! I custom mix my own colored slips and clear glaze to get the most consistent look possible. However, due to the organic nature of the material, colors and shades might vary from the picture slightly.

Items are food safe, dishwasher and microwave safe.
