Makers - Leah Angelini
Leah is the mastermind behind Spirit Mountain Silver, a small-batch southwestern style turquoise jewelry business. She is a skilled silversmith and one woman-show who handcrafts one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces using sterling silver. Each piece is carefully designed and crafted with attention to detail, ensuring that no two pieces are the same. Leah is passionate about her craft and creates each piece with love, care, and precision.
One of Leah's favorite pieces to create is her Horseshoe Rings/Necklaces. This design features a hand-stamped horseshoe crafted out of sterling silver, which wraps around a beautiful turquoise stone. Leah holds this design close to her heart as horses have been a significant part of her life. She believes that her Horseshoe Collection embodies everything that Spirit Mountain Silver represents - combining her love for turquoise with her love and fascination for the four-legged animal that walks in those shoes.
Leah's pieces are released once a month in featured collections, allowing her customers to have a chance to own a unique piece of jewelry that cannot be found elsewhere. Her small-batch approach ensures that each piece is crafted with care and attention to detail. Leah is proud to create jewelry that is not only beautiful but also meaningful to her customers. She believes that each piece tells a story and hopes that her jewelry will become treasured heirlooms passed down through generations.
In addition to her jewelry making, Leah also has a YouTube channel where she shares her knowledge of silversmithing with others. Her videos range from beginner to advanced and include step-by-step instructions for various jewelry-making techniques. Leah also shares her favorite tips and tricks of the trade, making her channel an excellent resource for anyone interested in learning the art of silversmithing.
