(Circle of life pendants - Léon©2007)A mutual friend introduced me to Léon’s work. Léon is a jeweler and a craftsman who lives in Lebanon. He fashions these retro-looking chunky jewelry out of stainless steel, silver and gold. They reminded me so much of a flower-child sensibility, that I gave them these names and others, like Moon Hoop and Magic Circle.
They are extremely reasonably priced for artist-designed, hand-made jewelry (a lot of these pieces range between 25 and 50 dollars US for stainless steel). Léon works on commission as well. I’ll update this space with contact information and to show more pictures.
