Lesley Tinnaro Loves Making Jewelry

I started my love of art in high school and continued it into college where I took as many art courses as I could without interfering with my field of study - history. After graduating in 1993, I found it difficult to find work in the history field. As luck would have it a friend of a friend had experience in jewelry making and gave me some leftover silver wire to play with. I was hooked! I'll admit, that first year was very experimental - all of my tools came from Home Depot that I modified in some way and I think I wrecked 2 pounds of silver trying to figure out how to work it. (There was no youtube to learn from or amazon to search for any book on the planet!) . In hindsight, I'm grateful for the experience because I'm not afraid to take a risk with a new design or new challenges.
I opened my Etsy shop in 2008 as a way for my customers to find me when they went back home. And they do find me! And tell friends!
Presently, I show my jewelry at Pass a Grille Artist Market, Suntan Art Gallery and ARTicles in downtown St. Petersburg, FL

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    I started making jewelry in 1995. My favorite days are spent with a hammer and a torch, creating a new design. I take pride in making each part of my jewelry, from the ring band to the tiny spheres that accent many pieces

I have been crafting sterling silver jewelry since 1995. It is my passion. If I have a moment, I'm in the studio hammering, sawing, soldering, sanding or otherwise moving metal. My designs are inspired by ancient civilizations with a modern twist. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy making them!
