Leon uses pressed flowers and leaves to create lovely handmade jewelry in all original designs. His unique line of fashionable barrettes, earrings, pendants and lapel pins is appealing and long lasting. This distinguished one-of-a-kind look is created by using “liquid glass” with a paper backing to display the flower or leaf inside. The natural jewelry pieces have a fine high gloss finish. Leon is also an alumni of the Mountain Bizworks program for area entrepreneurs.
