Leah Meleski earned her BFA in metals from the Massachusetts
College of Art and Design in Boston. Leah creates wearable jewelry
that is inspired by the basic formula that nature grows from.
Radiating patterns turn silver into natural, bold, clean lines. Pieces
are created through bending and soldering wire into complicated
natural forms, some of which are complimented with pieces created
through lost wax casting. Several objects have multiple parts that can
be assembled into another form such as a teapot and then taken apart
for its component parts to be worn as jewelry. Leah creates her work
in her home studio located in Jamaica Plain and works as an art
educator in the Wellesley school system.
