Leigh Ann Hurst

Leigh Ann Hurst, Jewelry Artist

Decatur, Alabama

Leigh Ann never intended on becoming a jewelry designer and it is through the originality and distinction of her custom pieces that the beauty of the jewelry is reflected. Beginning in the mid 80’s with a degree in Interior Furnishings and Equipment from Auburn University and fast forwarding to present day, she has always had a love for artisan design. Her inspiration comes from the clean lines and designs of Frank Lloyd Wright as well as the jewelry designs from the modernist period of the 1930s through the 1960s.

With the exception of a few weekend workshops, Leigh Ann is self taught in metalsmithing and jewelry design. She seamlessly blends sterling silver, copper, brass, and gold-filled metals to create unique art jewelry that is as pleasing to the eye as it is comfortable to wear. Semi-precious stones and leather are sometimes used adding visual interest and texture.
