ARTIST // LEONIE SIMPSON
Leonie is a designer and maker of jewellery and objects.
Based in Sydney, she creates small run jewellery collections, bespoke pieces and individual commisssions. She studied jewellery and object design at The Design Centre, Enmore.
I am interested in the sculptural qualities of jewellery that respond to the unique movements of the human body. A lot of my work currently uses traditional methods, especially wax carving.
Using these techniques allow my work to bridge between the traditional and cultural methods of crafting and sculpting jewellery, and the precision of contemporary manufacturing and production techniques.
