Lee Ann Jones
“I find being a designer a little hard at times, because there is so much I want to try and do.”
Wife, mother, and former lawyer Lee Ann Jones was approached by people who wanted to purchase her one-of-a-kind, limited-edition jewelry pieces from the moment she began designing and making them. She started taking metalsmithing classes just for fun, and found herself so immersed in what she was learning that the time flew by.
“When friends started wanting to buy pieces off of my neck,” she says, “I was hooked.” Her designs are influenced by vintage and antique pieces she has collected over the years, but her main source of inspiration is “watching the women I know... they are in constant movement working to earn a living, for their families and for the good of others.” First Place in the 2017 JCK Tucson UncommonGoods Design Challenge was just one of the awards she won a mere year after she introduced her first fine jewelry collection.
