About the Artist:
Lesley Rahner was born in Australia and raised in Hong Kong. She came to the U.S and succeeded in the business world as an airline sales representative/manager. Despite her success in the airline industry, she was always aware of a creative instinct strongly influenced by her life and education in Asia.
Before her retirement, she began a study of gems and jewelry design and obtained certifications in gemology. She opened her own business in 1995, working on a personal basis with her customers. While successful in the retail end of the jewelry business, Lesley felt a pull to the creative and design side of the jewelry business so she began intensive training in metalsmithing, studying with some of the most respected and skilled jewelry designers and fabricators in the country.
Her goal: "Creating elegance for the woman who does not want to wear what every other woman is wearing."
