About

Sometimes, art is a wisp, a single breath that rides on the wind and you have to catch it by its tail and clutch it tightly.

Using everything from upcycled typewriter keys to hand-sculpted and tooled recycled silver, Teresa offers a line of precious metal jewelry in a multitude of styles and themes, though she specializes in initials. “We are all a little narcissistic,” she laughs. “What better way to show your own self love than with a piece of art that bears the first letter of your name?”

But Teresa doesn't stop at initials, or even at silver. She repurposes bits of hardware in her sexy, edgy designs, as well as vintage poker chips which feature unique, youthful, and glossy images that express the inner machinations of her artistic spirit. Like her feminine Donatienne line of initials matches her femininity, so does her Ace line of vintage typewriter keys matches her flavor for the past- a girl anachronism. Her found object designs using beach stones ripple with her love of nature. Her Petit L'Amour line of cursive initials in small, simple silver discs speaks to her romantic spirit, while her repurposed hardware and upcycled poker chips echo both her desire to protect the earth as well as her unique perspective of it.

Without a doubt, Teresa's jewelry is one of a kind—much like Teresa herself. Maybe it's her vibrant red hair that gives her the spark—the fire of creation. Tom Robbins once suggested that redheads were descended from demigods, after all. Whatever the case, it can't be argued that Teresa sees the world through a lens unlike any other. Her jewelry is a testament to that.

Teresa can most often be found “twirling with her muse” in her home studio near the shores of the Puget Sound, her coffee cup close at hand, with music playing and family nearby.

Shop policies

Last updated on August 14, 2013
Welcome all custom orders!

Your items are made to order and will ship within 48 business hours. Most custom orders shipped within a week.

Thank you for shopping with Teresa DeLeen. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

I work with sterling silver, semi-precious stones, found objects, precious metal clay (PMC3), paper clay, and salvaged glass. PMC is pure silver particles mixed with an organic binder that produces a clay-like substance. Once the piece is created, it's fired in a kiln at 1650 degrees for two hours. The binder burns off and the particles fuse into solid, pure silver. Both the clay and the resulting silver piece are non-toxic.

If you see a piece that you are interested in but would prefer it on a different chain, a leather cord, or separately without any chain or cord, please contact me by clicking on 'contact teresadeleen' to your right, and I will discuss the options available to you
