About the Designer

Leslie Inkley Halloran

I grew up in Hunting Valley, Ohio. My husband, Jim, and I raised three children in Shaker Heights, Ohio and currently have three wonderful grandchildren. We now live across the road from where I grew up, way back in the woods, with our two rambunctious yellow labs, Riley and Max.

As a child I spent countless hours watching my grandfather create beautiful pieces of jewelry from gems, gold, and silver. My fascination with my grandfather's avocation led me to study beads many years later, and I became hooked.

After collecting a huge assortment of unusual and often rare beads, I realized I should do something useful with them. I made a few necklaces for fun and my family and friends were soon requesting custom pieces. That was six years ago and I am still making custom pieces for family and friends as well as a growing list of clientele at home and abroad. I enjoy studying the origins of the materials I use in my creations, and include background information on each necklace. I also delight in mixing antique beads from around the world with contemporary beads in a variety of unusual combinations. While some necklaces may be similar in style, each one is unique.

My own collection of beads and pendants continues to grow, as I often cannot bear to part with a particular piece, including the one on my home page. In case you can���t tell, I am a frog lover. I hope that you will find my jewelry creations as fascinating and as much fun as I do.
