Lesley is a British jeweller specialising in the use of cellulose acetate (derived from cotton oil) combined with sterling silver. This material can be manipulated into more fluid forms than other plastics. Lesley's passion for designing and making jewellery started in 1976 at The City Literary Institute, London, England. Since then she has continued to evolve and develop her personal style. Her inspiration comes from natural forms and sculptors of the 1950s. The final finish of each piece is important to her as she likes the wearer to have a very tactile relationship with her work.
