Silversmith Leslie Clearwater creates wearable art with a natural, brutalist feel. Her pieces often feature unique gemstones sourced carefully from all over the globe but may also showcase shell, porcelain, leather, even stones. Her jewelry has a rustic, essential aesthetic, and she also creates hair pieces and even spoons with a similar organic vibe. She works primarily in sterling silver and often adds elements in other metals. Leslie teaches and showcases her work in her Phoenixville, Pennsylvania gallery.
