Upon moving to New Orleans, Jess Leigh began her journey as a professional jewelry artist in January 2010. She had always had a propensity to create, and was casually nominated by her peers as the “crafty friend.” For Jess, and for so many, New Orleans lends itself to her to tap into her creative force in a larger capacity.

It is apparent that her spritely and vibrant, yet classic style is infused into each jewelry design. Her unique line is continually evolving. Paralleling the rhythms of her colorful life, it is an odyssey of expressing herself as she assimilates and forges her way in Louisiana. Each of Jess’s handmade jewelry is designed with love in NOLA.

5. Lagniappe Info. 

Our logo is a dandelion as a way to pay homage to Jess’ childhood home of Ohio. She has always adored the transformation of this plant and the promise of a wish bring granted by spreading it’s seeds. Our company tagline is “Born in Ohio, Reborn in New Orleans.” and it holds just as true today as it did ten years ago. We LOVE New Orleans!
