Leigh Miller is a collection of fine, contemporary jewelry designed by Leigh Miller Newman in Los Angeles, California.
Leigh is ever-inspired by natural forms, patterns, and designs. She thoughtfully translates facets of the natural world into meaningful sculptural metal works using unconventional methods of creating and developing. In conveying her love of earthly treasures from the sea and the land into metal and stone, Leigh creates pieces that are at once symbolic and indefinite, universal and personal. Using a uniquely developed wax-working method, she sculpts her works into molten wax, has her pieces cast, and then refines the castings through a process of hand-hammering, filing and sanding into intimately organic forms that are intended to exude meaning for years to come.
Our hand-formed pieces are created with care and immense attention to detail, form, and feel. The Leigh Miller collection is comprised of a full spectrum of metals, ranging from warm brass to sterling silver to a range of yellow gold and rose golds. A selection of pieces in the collection also feature ethically sourced semi-precious stones and hand-cast glass.
The line is produced nearly entirely by Leigh and her small team of artisans in her Glassell Park studio, which is nestled in the hills on the outskirts of Los Angeles. For more information on this, please visit our Ethos Page.
Each collection is inspired by facets of nature, experience, and travel. For further information on the inspiration points for each piece, please visit our collection pages.
The collection has since been featured in global publications including T: The New York Times Style Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, American Vogue, Italian Vogue, British Vogue, Vogue Japan, US Elle, Porter Magazine, Flaunt, Who What Wear, Women's Wear Daily, and other titles.
