Welcome to Emma Leonard Handcrafted Jewellery. I am a designer / maker based near the seaside in Poole, Dorset. I make jewellery inspired by mid-century fabric prints and patterns and the shapes you find in cityscape architecture. I like to imagine my work as tiny sculptures, adding pops of colour with hand-painted lacquers. I love seeing the angles where a stack of bangles cross and layer, or the contrast between polished silver and a flash of colour. Mainly I like making jewellery that makes people happy when they wear it.
If you would like to discuss a commission or find out more about the work shown on this site just click on the contact link to get in touch.
When I’m not making my own designs I love to teach other people how to make jewellery. Click on the ‘Learn to Make’ link above for information about silversmith classes and to find out more about my lovely Poole studio (I’ve just moved from my workshop in Westbourne, Bournemouth to a fantastic new space near the Quay!).
“As well as making her own beautiful jewellery Emma has a natural talent for sharing her knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm with others. I learnt so much, made some lovely, wearable things, met some great people and had lots of fun! I would thoroughly recommend her classes.”
